Guest thalion707 Posted September 25, 2008 Share Posted September 25, 2008 Hi, I am participating in an arthritis study with my greyhound at the University of Pennsylvania's school of veterinary medicine. As part of the study Thalion had radiographs of his rear hips. Two "small clips" showed up in the radiographs. I'd never had his hips x-rayed before so I had NO IDEA there were clips inserted into his hips. I assume (didn't see the vet again after she looked at the x-rays) there was no sign of broken bones. I'd also assume if Thalion had ever suffered broken hip bones during his racing career he would have been euthanized. So, it is very puzzling as to why anyone would have surgically implanted small metal clips into his hips. Has anyone else ever heard of something like this? I am so curious as to why he has these clips. Thanks. Teresa Glover Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
