Speaking of hips, I thought I'd ask here instead of making a new thread, but I was wondering what precautions or measures could I take to make sure my spoo doesn't get hip displaysia or decrease his chances of getting it. My Spoo is 47 lb male and he LOVES to jump. Like you would not believe LOL! I'm afraid this is going to make his hips worse in the future when he's older but it's just something he's been doing since he was a puppy and he really really enjoys it. Are there any supplements I should get him started on that helps with bones and what not??

When young, it is important to feed large breed puppy formula to slow down their growth so that there is balance between muscle and other soft tissue development vs. bone growth rate. You can consider giving a joint health supplement, but that won't prevent hip dysplasia. It will help prevent wear and tear on joints. Proper weight management is important to reduce stressful wear on joints as well. Hopefully your dogs are from lines where the hips are good or excellent on OFA or Penn Hip going back into the pedigrees. Even that doesn't guarantee there won't be problems though.

When do you suggest we switch over from puppy formula to adult formula, because Shelton (spoo) was in a service dog problem, I had no control over when he switched to adult (which was at 6 months old). I just want to know for future personal puppies

I would check with your vet, but between 6 and 9 months I think is average.

Lou and pinkteaji: Did your poodles come from parents with Good or Excellent graded hips? Are the majority of the dogs in the pedigree graded with Good or Excellent hips? If so, the chances of hip problems really are pretty slim, though there are always exceptions.

As far as what you can do to get the best of your dog's genetics - no road work or long distance/ strenuous exercise until the growth plates have closed. Don't feed any puppy or "growth formula" kibbles - watch the calc/phos. content. Don't overfeed.

Just enjoy your pup. What will be will be. If you have real concerns, hopefully you can discuss these with your breeder, who should know his/her line well enough to tell you if you need to be concerned.

When do the platelets generally close? Shelton was donated by a breeder in New York to service dog organization so unfortunately I don't know who is parents were. I do know that the the breeder/business is called Alexander Poodles, LLC.
