Canine hip dysplasia is a common cause of limping and lameness in larger dogs.

Hip dysplasia is an abnormal formation of the hip socket and is a genetic trait aggravated by environmental factors.

Hip dysplasia often eventually causes crippling, arthritis and joint pain.

Signs of hip dysplasia and joint pain include:

  • A swaying gait, with the rear end moving back and forth
  • “Bunny hopping”, especially up the stairs
  • Difficulty getting up
  • Exercise intolerance
  • Pain and stiffness in the rear end
  • Reluctance to walk, run, climb stairs, jump, or play
  • Sitting in a “frog” position with one leg splayed out

Luckily, Eastern medicine offers a natural, herbal solution for dog hip dysplasia and joint pain.
