Liko was having some discomfort after his naps and it seemed like he was not getting around well. His owners thought they should get his hips checked out. Even though Liko was very young, they found that had a severe luxation in his hips, due to a flattening of the femoral head.

To treat Liko's hip dysplasia his veterinary specialist needs to perform a FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy) surgery on each hip. The right hip has already been treated and as soon as Liko is up for a second procedure, he’ll have the left side corrected.

From Liko's family:

"He is doing well…and he is back home resting. I would also like to say that you and Embrace have been absolutely fantastic…[Our vet] said they have never worked with a more pleasant insurance company and I am very grateful for all your help."

Embrace wishes Liko a speedy recovery after his ordeal!

Liko's Policy

Most pet insurance plans will not cover hip dysplasia at all because they consider it to be a genetic condition. Embrace covers genetic conditions and gladly covered Liko's claim.
