What can I do for my dogs hip dysplasia?
(st louis mo)
I've known that she has had it for a while I just didn't know what to do.
I came home yesterday and she can not even stand on her back right leg she is limping, she can't go up the stairs we have to carry her.
I've been reading that there are medications that will help do you have any suggestions on how to make her more comfortable....
I'd suggest that you read my pages on hip dysplasia....
Hip Dysplasia In Dogs
Canine Hip Dysplasia
They have lots of advice and information on this condition. However, it sounds as though your dog is suffering fairly severely and is probably in a fair amount of pain. I'd strongly recommend that you have her examined by your veterinarian so that you know exactly what is going on and he will be the best person to advise you as to what treatment options are best.
Every dog is different, and what works for one dog may not work for another. This is a degenerative condition and without intervention will only get worse, so please get her to a vet asap.
I wish you the best of luck and hope that she's doing much better soon.
