Mya’s Chronicles Part 2


Hey, it’s me again. The wounds on my left rear leg were beginning to heal very well. My right hip, on the other hand, did not want to stay in place. Dr. Robin Moser tried several times to make it stay , but it wasn’t going to. What I needed was surgery and it was not going to be easy, but it had to be done. With the help of PaymentBanc my mom and dad were able to approve the surgery. The surgery involves the surgeon removing the head and neck of the femur (thigh bone). By doing this surgery it prevents bone on bone friction and the scar tissue that develops after surgery forms a false hip joint. The name of this surgery is a Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO). The interesting part of having this surgery is that Canine Rehabilitation sessions are included. The Canine Rehabilitation sessions are provided by Paws In Motion Canine Rehabilitation Center. So, the veterinarian technicians drew my preoperative blood work and scheduled my surgery for Friday that same week. See you next time for Part 3.
