  1. Possible hip dysplasia

    Dog Health
    I have two miniature American Eskimos who are both sisters and are 7 years old. Ever since they were puppies, one has always been bigger than the other, but they are both healthy and get good exercise.

  2. Great Dane pup Hip Dysplasia?

    Dog Health
    Hi! I just got a Great Dane/ Saint Bernard pup. I'm aware both these breed are risk factors for hip dysplasia so naturally, I'm paranoid. My puppy is 11 weeks and I've noticed that she does a lot of the symptoms such as frog sitting, Bunny hops, sway walk (I think), crawling up on furniture...
  3. Jumping with Hip Dysplasia

    Hello, my sister has a young German Shepherd (a year and a few months) and the vet said that he has hip dysplasia.

  6. Hip & Joint Relief Supplement That Works

    Dog Health
    I have been letting everyone I know about a supplement for hip & joint stiffness. We've just started giving it to our 8 year old Rocky about 6 weeks ago and the results have been great. I've also recommended it to a friend who runs a rescue shelter and she loves it too. A few months ago I...
  7. Hip Dysplasia Woes...

    Dog Health
    My 3.5 year old Lab/Border Collie mix (my best guess) was diagnosed with hip dysplasia last week. He had sudden onset lameness starting on Dec 24th that stuck around with no improvement. I work at a vet clinic, so he came to work with me on the 30th for an exam and radiographs were done under...
