A 4-day-old bull calf was admitted for treatment of a coxofemoral luxation. Closed reduction of the luxation was successfully performed on 2 occasions, and the limb was placed in an Ehmer sling. On both occasions, however, the luxation recurred. The luxation was reduced a third time with open reduction and caudal and distal relocation of the greater trochanter. Luxation did not recur after this treatment, and the calf grew and developed normally.
