“Buddy was diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia at around 6 years of age, with the left hind leg being more clinically affected. As lameness persisted despite conservative management through weight loss and oral anti-inflammatories, a total hip replacement was recommended. Buddy made local history by being the first dog in Singapore to be implanted with a BioMedtrix BFX® cementless implant in Aug 2013. He was observed to be confident in using the operated leg 8 weeks post op and is currently back to going for regular walks with his owners.”
