Hello and welcome to Chip. This gorgeous Corgi cross is a rescue. Sadly he had a dislocated hip when rescued. He was coping well with it but it was sore.
So he has now had surgery to remove the top of his limb bone. The body will then form a preudo joint also known as a faulse joint. The body makes this out of tissue it uses to fill the empty space. The body is so clever!
Our job is to keep the range of movement up so the limb will be fully functional when healed. We will also look after the other legs that are working harder whilst healing is occuring.
Chip and mum are doing very well and so Chip is healing fast. Keep up the good work! You'll be great in no time!
