Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/12/2014 -- Characterized by looseness of the hip joints, dog hip dysplasia is one of the most common conditions afflicting dogs. It is typically accompanied by weak muscles, ligaments and connective tissues. Consequently, the pain it causes affects a dogs’ quality of life. Although certain breeds of dogs are predisposed to developing this condition, it can be prevented with the help of proper diet and exercise.
Dog hip dysplasia is known to be a genetic condition, but certain environmental factors may increase the risk of developing it later in life. These environmental factors include both diet and exercise. Dogs predisposed to being affected by this condition should not be given a high-fat or high-calorie diet. Furthermore, one study found that Labrador retriever puppies that were free-fed had higher risk of developing the condition than those that were fed with the same food but in limited portions.
Proper exercise may also help prevent dog hip dysplasia. Puppies can benefit from low-impact exercise such as leash walking, and any forced exercise that is beyond what puppies would normally do should be avoided. Moreover, high-impact activities such as jumping may cause trauma on a puppies’ immature joints.
Another proven way of preventing dog hip dysplasia is by adding a hip and joint supplement for dogs to their diet. Advanced Hip & Joint Formula, for instance, contains glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and MSM, which are compounds that help prevent and repair damage to dog joints and connective tissues.
“My dog loves this product. He thinks it’s a treat! I have tried other products similar to this but he would not eat them. I would have to hide them in other foods. He loves this one! I can just give them right to him. Unfortunately, he was not blessed in then joint department. He has already had 2 knee replacements, so he really needs this supplement. It’s wonderful to have finally found one he will take without all the hassle!” – SPaul, Advanced Hip & Joint Formula customer
