I recently found this information while reading over some websites.
“The most prevalent joint disease in Newfoundlands is hip dysplasia. Dysplasia is a term used for abnormal or improper growth. Canine hip dysplasia is a condition in which the hip joint of the dog is not developed properly. Hip joint is the most important “weight bearing joint” of the body. In hip joint, the thigh bone or femur having a spherical head rotates in a cavity shaped acetabulum of hip bone. Normally, the femur bone fits into the hip bone and rotates smoothly. Various ligaments surround the joint that keep the joint bones intact in their place and provide strength to it. But in hip dysplasia the development or growth of hip bone cavity does not take place correctly. The hip bone cavity becomes too shallow or disrupted in shape that it becomes difficult for it to hold the head of femur. As a result, the thigh bone fits loosely into hip bone and moves freely. The bone surfaces rub against each other roughly which accelerates the wear and tear process of bones and cartilages, leading to inflammation and pain in joint.
The manifested symptoms of hip dysplasia are pain, lameness of hind limbs, limping, difficulty in climbing stairs and hopping while walking (bunny hop).”-www.pearandberry.com
This assessment of hip dysplasia was published online to sell a glucosamine and chondroitin supplement and makes the case that other than the use of an anti inflammatory, the only oher alternative to relief was to have, “surgical treatment like arthroscopy which is done to remove the damaged cartilage tissue. Once the dead tissue is removed, it will regrow and new tissue will replace the damaged."
What if it doesn't? What if the damage to the cartilage is simply repeated because the root cause, the malformed or malfunctioning femur and acetabulum may very well continue to do damage to the connective tissue and in the future, the very costly surgery becomes necessary again to promote the healthy healing of cartilage."
The most practical and probably the most effective course of action is a chelated mineral supplement with yeast, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and a healthy level of anti-oxidants. The chelated minerals will add some bone mass density(BMD) to the inflamed bones and add elasticity to the connective tissue and the other ingredients will reduce tissue damage and increase nutrient utilization to make for a better overall
This will provide healthy, long term, and effective movement back into your dog's life and even more important, pain free activity with the use of drugs for the life of your pet.
Don't believe me, just ask Connie from Texas or see what Donna from NorthCarolina or see the video testimonial about Zoe, Nena from Raleigh, NC's eight year old German Shepherd that could not go upstairs or get on her owners standard height bed. Lastly, read about Doreen, a sixteen year old cat that is back to jumping around the furniture and maintaining her weight and condition like she did when she was younger.
