Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
My cat has dislocated his hip/back leg. No fractures of pelvis. vet has tried manipulating it back in but it just keeps coming back out again, vet has given me option of operation where top of leg is cut off and then after time heals, can take up to a year, or orthopaedic op which costs around 4,000 or put him to sleep
Thank you so much, your expertise is so valued at a time like this. Many, many thanks x
Prince has had an operation, the vet has sewes his leg in place to help minimise dislocating again. Had Prince home 1 day and he managed to pull out his stitches. Tokk him back to the vets, they said they would have to put him back to sleep, to clean the wound and re-suture. They did an xray and found that they leg has dislocated again- vet is baffled says he has not known this happen before. Prince was only taking a few tentative steps in his cage..He now has to undergoe the op again tomorrow!
