OCT 9, funny bones: (hippo's) hip replacement



Asked the hippo, "Some points hypothetic:

Will I get my new hip-joint, prosthetic

Under full anaesthetic?

Is the implant synthetic?

And post-op, is your staff empathetic?"
Dr G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022

Author's Note: Hip replacement has become a surgical procedure that is frequently performed in humans, and is making inroads into veterinary practice in dogs and cats. Its role in jungle creatures and zoo inhabitants remains to be developed, parenthetically.
