Diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia HELP

Postby petty254 » Wed Jan 04, 2017 5:04 pm

My sister's pit has just been diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia, we got some advice form the vet concerning changing his diet and performing exercises. Just curious, has anyone here had the same issue with their pits? any information on how to take care of him will be highly appreciated.

This is such a sad, common problem in pit bulls. I'm sure you have done this, but in the upper left corner under "quick links" you can use the search feature and search for the keyword "dysplasia". Many on the forum have dealt with this.

Seems that diet and moderate exercise are key. Also, massages to the hip area are helpful, my Huggybear loved those!

Hydrotherapy is good for hip dysplasia and glucosamine, always check first though and never over do anything
