|My sister's dog had an FHO when she was about 5 months old. She had a dislocated hip, fractured pelvis in several places , and a broken femur on the other side. Youch!!! Anyway, this dog has done simply amazing after her surgery. She's about 7 months old now, and while she 'bunny hops' when she runs, when she walks she has pretty much full range of motion. Scully was pretty painful the next day, but within three days, she was acting like nothing had ever happened.
You can try to do some gentle PT to strech the muscles, and massage the leg. But really, after the surgery, things should heal fairly well on their own, especially with it being a young puppy.
