“Toby was referred to Dr. Bailey following a diagnosis of hip dysplasia. Although canine THR had never been performed in their region of Canada, she felt as though Toby would be a good candidate. Through a “joint” effort with Dr. Mark Rochat, of Purdue University, Toby became one of three dogs to have a THR in June 2017. Toby’s quality of life has been greatly improved! He thinks he is the 6 million dollar dog and loves to run in the yard and jump up on the fence to check out the neighbours, which he has never done before.”
