Are you diagnosing and treating hip dysplasia in puppies? Well, you should be! In children, hip dysplasia is so common that pediatricians in developed countries examine every newborn before discharge from the hospital. As pet pediatricians, veterinarians can use the same method to examine every puppy between the ages of 10 and 18 weeks for congenital hip laxity. Diagnosing canine hip dysplasia in young puppies and performing the minimally invasive juvenile pubic symphysiodesis surgery in appropriately selected puppies may decrease hip laxity, improve joint congruity, and prevent secondary hip osteoarthritis.
