Female Belgian Shepherd Dog, 6 and a half months old.
Hip dysplasia with severe subluxation causing serious locomotion problems.
1 – Croup
Looking at the croup region whe note the severe hip subluxation.
The great trochanter of both femures stand out laterally.
The locomotion problems can be seen in these 2 videos.
2 – Acetabuloplasty
This x-ray picture was taken immediately after surgery.
We see the serious subluxation and the bone grafts over the femoral heads.
3 – Acetabuloplasty
The real acetabuli are filled with new tissue and the grafts consolidated over the femoral heads
are the new suporting structures 5 months after surgery. By this time “Nina” reaches adult size.
We have 2 videos of Nina’s evolution
4 – Craniocaudal view
