Is it a hip replacement or an FHO? I've seen many dogs do well after an FHO, where the femeral head is removed (theoretically to grow back normally). We don't do hip replacement at our clinic, but I've been involved in many FHO surgeries from the xrays to the procedure through the recovery. There's some recovery time and therapy needed, but after all is said and done it usually does wonders.

she says hip replacement. 5000 dollars for one hip and dog will need to stay in crate for 3 months except for potty. does that sound like replacement? btw-what is the O in fho?
