Hip Dysplasia Program

Overview

Hip Dysplasia is a joint disease caused by irregular or abnormal growth and development of the hip. Generally this will occur on both sides of the dog. Depending on severity and a vet’s recommendation, hip dysplasia can be treated conservatively with physical therapy and hydrotherapy or surgically.

N.B. This treatment plan is a guide only and may be altered as the treatment progresses. Speed of progression through each stage is different for every furry friend!
