Hip Dysplasia star[offsite link]
Hip dysplasia is a genetic disorder in which dogs have a poor fitting hip joint. This ball and socket joint should fit together neatly, allowing dogs to move the legs freely and without pain.

Motion of the hip joints slowly causes erosion of soft cartilage in these joints. Hip dysplasia can affect either or both of the rear leg joints.

Early treatment with acupuncture may help alleviate or retard the development of the disease. There are also four surgical procedures available to treat hip dysplasia. This article explains each of these procedures.
