Hip Luxation Feline CBL

Overview

The hip can dislocate in various directions, the most common being craniodorsal (in the direction of both the head and the back). Hip luxations are the most common type of dislocation in cats. This issue is most often seen in cats who have suffered severe trauma, however, disease can also be the underlying issue. Any age or breed of cat can be susceptible to hip luxations. Treating a dislocated hip quickly can help reduce chronic, degenerative arthritis from developing in the cat.
