Chapter Summary

Inu is four years old. She weighs forty pounds. Too young and too light for arthritis to cause her femur bone to pull away from her pelvis and then proceed to grind against it with each step! Yet a month ago Inu was starting to limp as badly as she's limping now. The Femoral Head Osteotomy (FHO) sawed off the head of the femoral bone. At present Inu is what her therapist refers to as "an FHO dog". Post-op Inu now a member of a category! Inu has always liked to recline. The most generic thing about Inu may be the pain she suffers each time she puts her right hind leg down. This pain has no name.

Keywords: arthritis; femoral head osteotomy (FHO); Inu
