How to spot dysplasia in a dog?
Dog dysplasia is an abnormality in the development of tissue, most commonly in the hip or elbow. Since the most common cause is genetic transmission, it is important to sterilize a dog with dysplasia. However, this disease can also be caused by diet, the environment or excessive physical activity.
Dog dysplasia is difficult to detect, however, in young dogs it can result in a pronounced waddle of the hindquarters. But beware, waddling is not necessarily a sign of dysplasia, it can also simply be due to growth. A more significant symptom is the difficulty of the young dog to get up after a while in a sitting position.
In adult dogs dysplasia results in difficulty getting up and lameness after prolonged immobilization.
Treat and prevent dysplasia in dogs
When the dog is already suffering from dysplasia, functional rehabilitation can be carried out in mild cases which will lead him to strengthen his muscles and thus delay osteoarthritis which is the consequence of the disease.
In the most serious cases of dysplasia, it is necessary to go through surgery with resection of the pectineal muscle or even removal of the head of the femur. Here too, rehabilitation can help the dog. Preoperatively to soften the joint and strengthen the muscles and postoperatively to relieve pain and strengthen the dog's muscles.
