What is the treatment for a dog with a dislocated hip?


Answer by  patti (29325)

The hip must be reset. Otherwise the dog will be in an incredible amount of pain and ultimately be unable to walk.

The joint needs to be placed back in place and some kind of protection to ensure that it will not happen again.

Treatment for a dog's dislocated hip really all depends on how bad the dislocation is. If it isn't too bad; the vet will give the dog anesthesia, then return the hip bone to the socket. Then, they will wrap the dog's hip up to keep the bone in place for healing. If it is bad dislocation, surgery will be necessary.
