Canine hip dysplasia is a highly prevalent, genetic, osteoarthritic disease that causes mild to severe pain and variable degrees of disability in dogs afflicted with the condition. Except for the most severe forms of the disease, most dogs with canine hip dysplasia show minimal to no clinical signs. Understanding the disease helps veterinarians make evidence-based medical decisions tailored to individual patients.
