Natural Remedies for Dogs with Hip Dysplasia
You can help ease your dog's pain if he or she suffers from hip dysplasia. Since canine hip dysplasia is a form of degenerative arthritis, joint supplements, which help dogs with arthritis, can also help your dog with hip dysplasia. Other options include homeopathic remedies, Omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, NSAIDs, and as a last resort, pain medications (steroids).
If your dog has a predisposition to canine hip dysplasia, we recommend supplementing your dog's diet with joint supplements, antioxidants, and Omega 3 fatty acids to help decrease the tendency to develop hip dysplasia, and to help control pain if it develops. Research shows that 75% of dogs with hip dysplasia will lead normal quality lives with the appropriate supplements and wise management.
