Default Hip Dysplasia

Oh goodness..
Unfortunately I do have experience with this. I owned a Golden Retriever who was dysplastic in one hip. The X-rays showed hardly any joint formed. She walked pretty wobbily most of her life, but thank God didn't seem to be in much pain.
I know there is a surgery available if your dog is in pain so you might want to look into that. There is also some water therapy that seems to help them with Re-Hab of the joints.
The Standard Poodle breeders as a whole have been very diligent in protecting owners from this by testing their dogs...glad about that..and I respect them for it.

Hello everyone. I was afraid to do a search here for hid displasia, because what I would find out.
Lou's hips pop a lot... And it freaked me out when I started noticing.

Did anyone noticed that on a dog with hip displasia? please say no...

I have tried to contact her breeder, but the last time I spoke with her she had just lost her husband to cancer and she was having chemo herself for colon cancer, such a sad story, I have not been able to reach her, which worries me.

I will send in Lou's papers this week. I have forgotten about it, because it has been in a drawer and I have been very busy and stressed out with work.
I also want to get her tested she is 9 months old now.

Any info on symptoms would be appreciated, I could be just worrying for no reason, I always come up with things to worry about, its just me....

Thanks all!

Default Hips

I had a Dobie that started showing symptoms around two. Rimadyl was by prescription only at the time and really helped.

We had a German Shepard twenty five years ago who ended up with hip dysplasia when she was five years old. One day she is walking fine, the next she started acting a liitle sore. She came from certified, tested parents. The breeder was no help what so ever. All we wanted was for her to split the cost of surgery with us, all she wanted us to do was fly our dog back to her at our expense, pay for her vet to check our dog and she would give us a new puppy. That wasn't an option as far as we were conserned. She did really well with the surgery and we took her several times a week to the lake to swim to help her heal. We had to be careful with her running too much, but she did really well for many, many years. I know there are many more treatment options available than what we had back then.

I am sure if you pm'd her, she would encourage you to do the same.

I am so sorry you are going through this with your precious family member. Would you please PM me the name of the kennel he came from and his registered name, so I can look at his pedigree? I would really appreciate that.
ARREAU, how do I go about finding my dog's pedigree online? I only know her parents' names, but would love to go further back... Just for curiosity sake... lol

KATIE006 sorry to hear about your baby... I hope you find a treatment that helps!
