Bella is a very special rabbit who has had a few surgeries to fix her dislocated hips. She suffers from a deformity of the hip joint called hip dysplasia. Hip dysplasia is more commonly found in certain breeds of dog and very rarely in rabbits. Bella's first visit to the clinic was on New Year's Day when suddenly she became lame on one back leg. She was given some pain relief and radiographs were taken which showed Bella's dislocated hips. Surgery was performed to replace the hips and secure them in their sockets.
While it has been a long road to recovery but thanks to her committed mum, Bella should soon be hopping around the house as good as new!
