Dog Hip Dysplasia

Both sexes are equally affected by this disease, St. Bernards, Newfoundlands, Molosses, Bernese Shepherds, Rottweilers, German Shepherds and Boxers are especially prone to dysplasia. According to statistics, this pathology is widespread, and in the absence of control measures, the frequency of its occurrence can reach 70% among these breeds.
