Yes, my dog had a hip fracture several years ago. I took her to the vet, and he said that it would be about $6000 to perform surgery and aftercare. He also stated that most dogs can heal on their own much easier than people, and would probably be OK in a couple of months if left untreated. In 3 months she was running and playing with our male dog, and no problems since.
