Hi there, Lyndall Pinchen, Canine Naturopath from Canine vitality, here today with Rabi to share with you Five Ways To Prevent Hip Dysplasia From Ruling Your Dog’s Life.
Do you have a puppy that has just been diagnosed with hip dysplasia??? and maybe right now you feel like there is very little that you can do to help your growing pup?? This is the case for many dog owners,( especially those who have large to giant breed dogs) and it is certainly one of the most common joint problems seen in dogs. Canine Hip dysplasia ( a form of arthritis) is a deformity of the hip (or coxofemoral joint) that occurs during a dog’s growth period….this is where the ball of the femur (this is the long bone between the knee and hip joint)doesn’t fit properly into the hip socket joint. There is a looseness in the hip joint and this looseness creates abnormal wear and erosion of the joint and as a result pain and arthritis develops. Now, an affected dog may show absolutely no signs of this condition, whilst others may show severe signs. And while there is a component of heredity with the condition), I believe environmental factors play a far bigger role in the progression of the disease as ANY dog can be affected. Today I want to share with you 5 things I believe are important in preventing hip dysplasia from progressing and ruling your dog’s life.
The symptoms of hip dysplasia in dogs include hind leg weakness, lack of coordination in the hind quarters (swaying and staggering), reluctance to run and jump, difficulty when attempting to lie down or stand u and abnormal gait. Commonly these start to show in older dogs, but today we are now seeing many younger dogs showing signs of hip dysplasia along with a range of other joint issues. So if you have a young puppy, it certainly makes good sense to address this from a preventative perspective as soon as possible.!!
