What you should know about your dog’s hips–
The canine hip is a ball and socket joint. Therefore this sturdy dog hip support is design to holds the joint ‘in place’.
Some breeds like German Shepherds or Golden Retrievers are more prone to developing hip disorders. This does not mean other breeds of dogs are immune. It is important to keep an eye on your dogs movements as they age. If you see changes in the way they get up, walk or sit down, do not waste time in consulting your vet.
Is there a Natural treatment for canine hip dysplasia?
Ideally never breed from a dog which suffers from the condition. Ask your vet about external supports and physiotherapy. You must attend to the an affected hip or it will deteriorate.
A good dog hip support/belt is designed to provide an external support, when the internal mechanisms of the dog fail due to age, injury or improper breeding. A hip support may be used to delay or avoid surgery, but that is a decision only your veterinarian can make. Hip dysplasia home treatment may be a decision you can take with your vet, ask them how you can support your dog. Each case and condition of a patient is different, so approach this with a targeted approach.
