Hip Dysplasia is a painful condition caused by an abnormal joint structure along with muscle, tissue, and ligament laxity which impacts joint support. . If signs of hip dysplasia are present, it is important to contact a veterinarian to decide on the best course of treatment. Assisi Animal Health shares some common signs to look for that could mean your dog is suffering from hip dysplasia.
When afflicted with hip dysplasia, your dog may exhibit reduced activity, reluctance to place any weight on the hind legs, and an unwillingness to climb stairs. You should also look for resistance in full extension of rear legs or any signs of stiffness. Difficulty getting up, limping and avoidance of daily exercise are also associated with hip dysplasia. Symptoms may present themselves as early as 5 months old, but typically begin to show in the middle to later years of a dog's life. Be aware of changes in your dog's behavior and, if applicable, start treatment as early as possible.
Hip dysplasia in dogs, while challenging, can be treated through a variety of means. Treatments range from oral supplements, such as glucosamine and chondroitin, to anti-inflammatory drugs to hip replacement surgery. Massage and physical therapy can also be used to strengthen your pet's joints. It is important to control your dog's body weight to avoid stress his or her joints. The Assisi Loop's, targeted electromagnetic field therapy device is an effective treatment and is used at home or in a veterinarian's office. The Loop works to reduce pain and swelling in the joint, helping the dog to regain mobility.
