My son's puppy is favoring her left hip. She still runs and jumps around so I don't think she is injured.?

I have heard some about hip displaysia. Could anyone tell me what the signs are for this type of a disease? I am not sure what to look for. Any help?

I would take it to the vet just to be sure. The breeder I got my dog from was training a dog (like 10 years ago) but it was only 4 months old and it had severe hip displaysia, it had to be put down at 7 months. While on your puppy it is probably nothing to worry about, I would take it to the vet, that way if it is something serious it can be fixed, and it will give you piece of mind knowing the puppy is ok!

I would take her to the vet and see. My boyfriend's 18 month old 80 pound dog favors his left hip (or possible his leg) every once in a while as well. He shows no discomfort when you move the leg around or squeeze any part of it, though, much like your son's girl. We took him to the vet and he doesn't have HD, but he is so large that it's hard on his joints. He takes glucosamine tablets twice a day to loosen up his joints now and is doing much better. I'd make an appointment with the vet, just to get it checked out. No harm in doing so! Good luck.

MY 4 year old beagle. gets a sore hip a few times a year. Vet has check for a hip problem but he doesn't have one. He's got lots of muscle in his legs and hip. vet say he just pulled a muscle and to keep him from running and jumping. He is usually better in 4 days or so. Every once in a while we notice it gets really bad and he's in pain. Vet gave us some pain pills that help with the pain and keep him inactive.

Hip Displaysia is like a partially dislocated hip joint. It is rare to see it in a puppy. It usually shows up in older dogs and is quite painful. More likely she bruised her hip but I would take her to the vet just in case.

if still a puppy, then you should be having routine shots and exams. so next time in have it looked at. my girl has hip issues too. sometimes she sprains herself. jumps or lands wrong, jumps out of the minivan too excited and lands wrong. generally i keep an eye on her she will limp for a few days. then gets back to normal. My suggestion is if it persists or gets worse, or noticeably painful then take an extra trip to the vet just to play it safe.

If it's a large breed it could be pano. Don't let it run and jump around at this point. Call your vet for a check up is the best way to go.

Well, limping is the first clue. There's also often audible "clicking", or if you carefully stretch the hip through normal motions you can FEEL the friction. A vet diagnosis however, is the only surefire way to know.

Leaving the radio on is a uncomplicated mistake made by using many human beings. once you circulate away the radio on whilst your puppy ought to be seperated from you for the completed night you have conditioned your pup to experience under pressure whilst it hears the radio on whilst it quite is left on my own. turn the radio off. placed the crate on your mattress room till the pup is older. If neccessary lay down next to the crate till pup falls asleep. Pop a warm water bottle (to not warm) in with pup and additionally a toy around a similar length as your pup. domestic dogs prefer to relax their heads on products purely like they could relax their head on a clutter mate whilst they're slumbering. grant a chew toy. that's going take you a rapid time to restoration this problem when you consider which you have permit the dogs out of the crate whilst it has howled and as a result the dogs knows a thank you to win. in any respect expenses overlook appropriate to the pup crying/whining/howling. If neccessary circulate away a observe on your neighbours letter boxes explaining which you're crate guidance & you delight of their persistence and the pup could settle interior the subsequent a million-2 weeks. in uncomplicated terms permit your pup out whilst it crys throughout the night to be skipped over to circulate to the lavatory. you have in uncomplicated terms had the pup for one week, no to blame proprietor could re-abode a dogs after this way of short volume of time. You first could understand which you will not get lots sleep for the 1st month on a similar time as the pup settles. you are able to desire to understand which you have taken the pup remote from its' mom and its' clutter, it quite is feeling on my own and probable scared.
