Hong Kong's First FELINE Total Hip Replacement

Most people think of large breed dogs having hip problems. Did you know that small dogs and cats can also suffer from hip dysplasia, osteoarthritis, luxation and fracture? Even these small patients can undergo total hip replacement, which, when performed by an experienced specialist, results in better overall comfort and function than traditional "salvage" procedures.

Accuracy and Advantages of Computed Tomography for Suspected Intervertebral Disc Herniation

Suspected intervertebral disc herniation is a common indication for spinal imaging in dogs. Survey radio graphs alone are not an accurate imaging modality for the diagnosis of intervertebral disc herniation, so advanced spinal imaging is a prerequisite to surgical intervention. This allows for accurate assessment of location, laterality, and degree of spinal cord com pression to guide surgical correction.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an optic neuropathology. The disease leads to the death of neurons - the retinal ganglion cells (RGC) and their axons. In humans, this disease can be presented without an elevation in intraocular pressure, but with progressive optic neuropathy. Eventually, elevation of intraocular pressure will persist. This normal tension glaucoma has not been documented in animals. Therefore, in humans, elevation of intraocular pressure is only one factor leading to blindness. In animals, however, elevation of intraocular pressure is the primary risk factor for blindness.

A message from Dr Alane

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

The past several months have been busy but amazing.  I am so proud of our VSH team and their accomplishments, and truly humbled by the support we have received from colleagues and friends.  VSH Hong Kong grew from an idea to a reality in a very short period of time, and there are so many individuals who have helped make that happen.  Our nurses, client care specialists, management staff, and doctors have each offered ideas, insight, expertise, and extra hours to help build VSH from before we even opened our doors.  I am forever grateful to this team, and I look forward to our future together.
