@pipermom She sure is pretty and I see some Basenji in her. It is hard to completely erase those ancient features. My B had Cancer which was when she was 12. She relapsed at the age of 16 and that was when I had to put her to sleep.
Surgery is always expensive but if the Vet says it is required then I would get a 2nd opinion before you pay thousands of dollars for the Surgery.
@antigone I’m so sorry to hear you lost a pet to cancer. But so wonderful that the first time the cancer was put into remission so you could have more time.
Fortunately the FHO surgery will be paid for by the rescue organization if it is necessary. We have a consult on January 18th to go over the x-rays and discuss the treatment.
I should worry more about the other hip suffering problems later on if you don't have surgery one the poorly one. i.e. maybe you should get it done to balance her again. But your Vet will advise you of all the implications, I'm sure.
Meantime, just love her - she's a pretty little girl.
