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.

Hong Kong's First FELINE Total Hip Replacement

Meet Long Long, the recipient of Hong Kong's first ever feline total hip replacement. Long Long suffered a hip luxation and fracture, and his owner elected joint replacement. The "Total Hip Team" experienced veterinary specialists at VSH performs at least two hip replacements each month, on dedicated days, so that we can minimize the risk of infection and focus on our hip patients. If your pet, large or small, suffers from hip pain, ask your veterinarian if total hip replacement might be an option.
