Hip Dysplasia

Hip Dysplasia

So many of us that have ever owned a dog, has heard this term at one time or another.  But what is it exactly.  It is a disease that directly affects the hip joints of dogs.  The hip joint is a ball and socket joint where the ball portion of the femur is meant to rotate freely in the socket of the pelvis.

Hip Dysplasia occurs when there is either malformation in the ball &/or socket of the joint.  It can also occur over time when the muscles, connective tissue and ligaments that normally support the joint become lax.
