Hip Dysplasia
 
I think my pup Smokey may have hip dysplasia. I noticed yesterday that when he runs, his back legs stay kind of close together and hops like a bunny. He's 4 months old, and was wondering if anyone could let me know what they think about it and/or if I'm being paranoid, here's a video clip. I'll try and get some better footage/angles by this weekend.

Thanks for any input.

No matter what get it checked out at the vet SOON. That's the first thing.
Then get him fixed if he does have it. Notify your breeder immediately,it is genetic disorder and he/she needs to have his dogs tested to find out which one has it so he/she can spay or neuter the dog that is carrying it.

NesOne 05-09-2008 05:13 PM

Yeah, I'm going to ask the vet to check him out tomorrow when I take him for his ear follow up.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you, man. I didn't watch the vid. (dial up) But all mine have hopped like rabbits when they are chasing something. Does he limp at all?

NesOne 05-09-2008 08:39 PM

No limping, and it is when he's chasing after something or someone but he does hop with his front legs, it's just his hind legs.

The only way to know for sure is by x-rays.

Many pups move funky while maturing. However, one that does a lot of bunny hopping usually has a funky rear assembly whether it be the structure alone or possibly HD.

Best of luck at the vet

I hope your little guy is alright. I know that Chalice does her bunny hopping all around the yard when she is chasing after her ball or being naughty and chasing the ducks:mad: .

Please let us know what the vet said.

hip dysplagia questionable
 
You can have a PENN-hip done by 16 weeks <www.pennhip.org> to verify it On this website they have a place where you can look for a vet that does it and read all about the test too. Good luck. I found out about that test here on this site too by the way.

geisthexe 05-27-2008 01:28 PM

Hun cancel your appointment with your main vet. Most vets know nothing about HD like a specialist does. You need to find a PenHip Cert Vet. You can have the hips xrayed and sent off for Penn State for eval.

Here is a few vets in California .. you will need to look for the one that is close to you.

PennHip Official Site

PennHip can be done on a 4 month old dog. They prefer to start at 9 months but it can be done. To show is HD is present. Also you must understand puppies will bunny hop and can converge the rear movement. Your video shows nothing, it is to small and you are not showing the rear at all.

I wish you the best

Thank you, and I will wait til he's 9 months and try one of the places you listed. Now that I've started walking him I noticed that he walks pretty normal. Thanks again.
