Hello. My friends dog a one year old standard was just given this diagnosis today after she had her dogs hips xrayed when he was under for his neuter. Any others with this diagnosis? She is looking for any info or input. Vet recommends a specific food and a supplement called Glyde he will be on for life. Thank you!

'Ortolani' is the name of a test used for dx of hip dysplasia in young dogs or puppies .....they apply pressure on the hip socket to see if it holds or if the dog has dysplastic hips (or the possibility of becoming dysplastic). ( you can actually hear a 'thunk' when manipulating the hip and it becomes displaced or slips out of the socket.)
It is good they caught it early.
