Hip Dysplasia NEW
by: Anonymous

I am sorry to hear about your newfie, but hip dysplasia can be operated on with a lot of success. Even if you are not insured and the operation is beyond your means, supplements like glucosomine and some hydrotherapy will work wonders for him.

You should also find another vet. If yours doesn't know hip dysplasia when he sees it, he should not be practicing.
