“Juvenile pubic symphysiodesis surgery is more successful at an early age when a significant potential for growth remains, especially in puppies with high distraction indices. A successful outcome is one in which good femoral head coverage is achieved and hip joint laxity resolves, precluding the necessity for more invasive surgical intervention in the future.”
