Can Hip Dysplasia In Dogs Come Suddenly?

Can Hip Dysplasia In Dogs Come Suddenly?

Hip dysplasia is usually present from birth, but oftentimes, we don’t see the signs until later. In that case, it can seem that the dog was normal one day and abnormal the next.

It can be scary when it happens, but many times a dog's hip can simply pop out of joint, or they subluxate their hip joint. They can be running around fine, and then they’ll come up lame suddenly. They may hold their leg up our yelp out in pain. It'll look like it hurts, because it does hurt. Their hip joint just popped out.

In other cases, when a dog develops hip dysplasia alongside arthritis, those signs tend to come on pretty slowly.
