FHO Surgery in Leesburg, VA

FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy) surgery is a procedure commonly performed on dogs suffering from hip dysplasia, Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, or other orthopedic conditions that cause chronic pain and difficulty walking. At North Oatlands Animal Hospital & Reproduction Center, we offer FHO surgery as a safe and effective treatment option for our furry patients.

During FHO surgery, the head and neck of the femur (the ball and socket joint of the hip) are removed, allowing the surrounding muscles to support the joint and provide pain-free movement. The benefits of FHO surgery include reduced pain, improved mobility, and a better quality of life for your pet.

Post Surgery Care

After FHO surgery, proper post-operative care is essential to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery. Our experienced veterinary team will provide you with detailed instructions for post-operative care, including pain management, exercise restriction, and physical therapy. We may also recommend additional supplements or medications to support your pet's healing process.

Regular follow-up appointments will also be scheduled to monitor your pet's progress and ensure a successful outcome. With proper post-operative care, most pets can return to their normal activities within a few months of FHO surgery.

If you think your pet may benefit from FHO surgery, please don't hesitate to contact us at North Oatlands Animal Hospital & Reproduction Center. Our compassionate veterinary team is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care for your furry friend.
