    Our 10-months girl was just diagnosed with hip dysplasia.
    As far as I understand, there are two types of surgery can be done - Total Hip Replacement (THR) or Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO).
    Have you ever had experience with any of them? I did some research online and some people say FHO is not recommended for large dogs, while some say they do as fine as THR.
    I'd really appreciate any feedback or any real life experiences to decide what should we do with our girl.

    My pup recently diagnosed with hip dysplasia and pano, wondering what you decided to do and what the outcome is? Waiting to see specialist in a couple of weeks.

    Thanks, Amy
