Hip dysplasia in dogs is a problem that affects at least three categories of people.
These are veterinarians (orthopedists, surgeons, genetics, physiologists) involved in the detection of dysplasia, its diagnosis, treatment, and making recommendations for raising healthy animals. Considering the experience accumulated by dog handlers, they put forward (and then correct!) Assumptions about the causes of dysplasia.
These are dog handlers (breeders, breeders) involved in the compilation (taking into account the recommendations of geneticists) and the implementation of breeding programs aimed at reducing the frequency of this trait in dog breeds, compiling and bringing to the general public dog breeders recommendations for raising healthy animals (and checking the effectiveness of these recommendations, too )
It is the breeders themselves who want to know how to raise a healthy dog, what needs to be done to establish the correct diagnosis, what is the likelihood of this disease in the beloved dog and what to do if she is nevertheless Continue reading
Prepare in advance for your puppy a place where he will sleep. Place it away from batteries and drafts, not in the aisle, so that the baby feels calm. A small puppy can be put on a regular mattress.

Owners of dogs and cats are increasingly paying attention to the condition of their pets: they try to feed them better, but, unfortunately, they are often held captive by prejudice, as modern knowledge refutes the prevailing practice of feeding. For example: “A dog should eat only once a day …” or “Once a week it should be left without a coma …” This is convenient for the owner, but has nothing to do with the dog’s health. Or one more thing: “The dog works better on an empty stomach.” But today it is recognized that under loads requiring endurance (hunting, working in a harness at long distances), the dog should be lightly fed 3-4 hours before they start.
Many categorical statements contain the refusal to use the finished feed, and many owners feel guilty for having to take the easier path.
