Canine Hip Dysplasia is a condition which begins in immature dogs with instability or a loose fit of the hip joint. The hip joint laxity is responsible for early clinical signs and joint changes.
Young dogs begin to explore their surroundings as soon as their eyes open. Mouthing, chewing and biting objects is a part of this exploration; however, it can result in injury to your pet and damage of valuable household items.
All domestic dogs are descended from wolves. Despite sometimes being very different in shape, size, and color, domestic dogs have retained many of their behavior patterns. It is this part of our dogs that we need to understand if we are to enjoy our lives together.
