Inya is a beautiful and sweet 5 year old female boxer that was hit by a car and then picked up by Animal Control. She was taken to a local kill shelter where it was identified that her hip was the issue. Euthanization was the only option unless a rescue stepped up to take Inya and get her the surgery required.
BRLA stepped up and got Inya to vet who confirmed she neede a FHO operation to be able to walk pain free and then be adopted to a new loving home.
A femoral head osteotomy, also referred to as a femoral head ostectomy or FHO, is the surgical removal of the head and neck of the femur. In simpler terms, it is the removal of the “ball” part of the ball-and-socket that makes up the hip joint. This way, the bones of the joint are no longer in contact, which eliminates the pain that is caused by the abnormal contact of the bones.
Inya is full of love and deserves a full and rich live with a family of her own.
Please help BRLA help Inya with a donation of any amount to her Medical Lifeline Fund.
