👂 2/- Hip Dysplasia 👂
Hip dysplasia is a common skeletal problem. It develops due to a combination of external environmental factors and genetically inherited traits. The condition is caused by underdeveloped hips that then lead to malformation. It typically starts at a young age; the hip joints continue to deteriorate until there is a complete loss of functionality. Both male and female dogs are susceptible to the condition. However, due to the way bulldogs are bred, they have the highest occurrence rate of hip dysplasia, with approximately 70% of all bulldogs affected by the condition.
