After closed reduction you may be required to:

  • Restrict activity for several weeks.

  • A non-weight bearing sling will be used to prevent your dog from using the limb. Monitor the sling closely so that it does not stretch or move, making it ineffective.

  • Administer analgesics for pain or anti-inflammatory medications to keep your dog comfortable.

    After open reduction you may be required to:

  • Restrict activity for several weeks.

  • Monitor the skin incision for excessive swelling or discharge.

  • Return for follow-up radiographs in several weeks to make sure the hip is still in the joint.
