Hip dysplasia is a common joint condition among dogs that causes pain and discomfort. This generally results from improper growth as a puppy due to genetics and/or dietary deficiencies. Hip dysplasia generally deteriorates over time and is further exacerbated by exercise. While proper nutrition and growth as a puppy can help prevent hip dysplasia, nothing can be done to prevent it if a dog is genetically predisposed; however, the condition can be managed through medication and limited exercise. This presentation will examine ways to prevent hip dysplasia beginning in puppies, as well as the symptoms, treatments, and outcomes for dogs who have already been diagnosed.
