Hip dysplasia is an abnormal formation of the hip socket that, in its more severe form, can eventually cause crippling lameness and painful arthritis of the joints. It is a genetic (polygenic) trait that is affected by environmental factors. It can be found in many animals and occasionally in humans, but is most commonly associated with dogs, and is common in many dog breeds, particularly the larger breeds."
For some time, I was very very very upset. And very angry. Both emotions ingrained as job description of being a mom... Couldn't see the pain he was in. Initial medication was not working and he was having difficulty getting up, walking...he was not in mood to go out and play (which probably will be a case if your hip was in such a bad condition) When a week from starting his medication, I heard him moaning while sitting (or rather throwing himself down on floor); I took him back to doc. She gave us anti-inflammatory meds and prescribed a new high power powder for hips.
We know there is a long way to go, but we are pretty sure about safe sailing. We thank you all those who sent love and advice our way and also all those who kept us in their prayers.
