My lab fell into a hole about a week ago and dislocated his hip. No dido Asia, just a bad injury. Vet put it back in, but it came back out a couple of days ago. He is recommending a "thermal head ostiectomy" where part, or all, of the head of the femur is removed so that a "false joint" forms from scar tissue. Does anyone have any experience with this and have some advice. I am not a field trial guy, just have a really good dog, that my son and I really enjoy hunting with.
