hip dysplasia

a chronic degenerative condition producing lameness in animals, of highest prevalence in particular dog breeds. Laxity of ligaments about the hip joint permits erosion of weight-bearing surfaces, which is exacerbated by strenuous exercise in rapidly growing dogs. Etiology is multifactorial. Radiographic correlation with clinical signs is poor.
