    Heat compresses & stretching was recommended. Femoral head removal was suggested if things don't improve.
    Any advice from other owners?

    Both my female bulldogs have had FHO (they had hip dysplasia) and they are doing very good The recovery wasn't as bad as I thought either as they walk by themselves right after surgery. It's just important to keep them calm, no jumping, no stairs etc. for a few weeks.

    I hope things improve though so Buddy doesn't have to have another surgery <3

    We've done FHO on numerous Bulldogs and not one issue with it.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind
