This quote was taken from an article written by Dr. Ian Billinghurst and appears on www.naturalcanines.com and appears under the article “Bone and Joint Disease in Young Dogs”. The article is part of a multi-faceted look at canine hip dysplasia, arthritis, and other nutritional problems that have arisen over the decades. It is under the heading “Articles” and subheading of “Error Of The Milllenium In Veterinary Medicine”
Please go read not only the article, but also, all you can find about nutritional causes of canine hip dysplasia and arthritis. You will find broad statements about genetics and heredity and breeding but, no valid solutions to a problem that has been around for 70 or more years but only for 70 or more years in an animal that has been around for thousands of years. So you make the case, defend the idea that hip dysplasia is a genetic condition and you will be disappointed with the circumstantial evidence of which the statistics of the nutritional data should have been taken into consideration but almost never was.
The high protein, high carbohydrate diet just plain grows those dogs' skeletal system too fast and does not give the bones time to harden and grow hard, not long.
Triad Performance Supplement from Build A Better Dog takes a total nutritional approach to hip dysplasia and arthritis in dogs and gives you the opportunity to correct your pets physical problems with a minimum of extra care and treatment other than something that is just poured over their regular food product.
This is not good news and is not getting any better. The incidence of hip
dysplasia is almost 3 times worse than arthritis.
