Leeza was presented with bilateral hip dysplasia. Her owner also reported Leeza had an unreliable temperament due to pain associated with arthritis. Following Leeza’s first total hip replacement, the pain was reduced, activity levels rose, and her temperament improved. Her owner requested surgery on the other hip. Leeza has had marked improvement of her muscle mass, along with a return to her original pleasant demeanor.
