A Really "Hip" Show with Dr. Kechia Davis
Show Notes

This is the hippest show we've launched to date! Why?  Because it covers a very common type of hip surgery called an FHO (Femoral Head and neck Ostectomy) used to treat a variety of hip issues from traumatic injuries to severe arthritis caused by such conditions as hip dysplasia. Listen to Kechia Davis, DVM, DACVS, describe the anatomy of the hip, the surgery itself, the immediate post-op period and particular benefits of physical rehabilitation, and the ultimate goal of return to normal function. It can benefit young and old, big and small, cats and dogs to alleviate pain through the creation of a "false joint!"

To find Dr. Kechia Davis, please visit VCA South Shore (Weymouth) Animal Hospital.
