Hip Dysplasia

When the hip joint is not correctly formed it fits too loosely in the “ball and socket” of the hip, resulting in pain and arthritis. This condition can occur in any breed of dog or cat but large breed dogs are especially prone. The cause of hip dysplasia is primarily genetic but improper nutrition during bone development does contribute. Good nutrition, holistic supplementation and strict weight management are essential to the management of hip dysplasia. In severe cases surgical hip replacement may be necessary.
