This dog has…

By Dr. Andrew Jones

Hello to you and your pets!

Here is an older X-ray of a not uncommon dog health problem- occasionally I also
see this in some cats.

This dog was lame, and it started at about 1 year of age.

There was an unusual gait.

I palpated pain on extension of the hips.

Here is what I found on X-ray:

doghipdysplasia

I am having a contest, and the WINNER will get a copy of my Digital Book, Veterinary Secrets Revealed.

So go ahead and make your best guess..YOU could be the winner

Good Luck!!

Dr Andrew J

P.S. If your dog has this condition, then here is something which can help:

Ultimate Canine Health Formula

If your cat has something similar, then this can help:

Ultimate Feline Health Formula

*** UPDATE: This post is now CLOSED for comments – we will announce the winner on Wednesday, July 14th. Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond! ***

    Hello Dr. Jones,

    My guess for the xray is inflammation due to arthritis.

    Arthritis?

  6. Laura Mayden Says:

    How about hip dysplasia (sp)?

  7. lillian Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 9:54 am

    I guess its bursitis.

  8. Christy Young Says:

    Just guessing….hip dysplasia?

  9. Cathy Ginter Says:

    This day has inflamation of the hip joint with arthritis

    Dog has “doghipdysplasia”. My dog has that and I give him the Ultimate Canine Health Formula daily.
    He loves the taste and it seems to help him run and play.

  12. Lisa Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 9:58 am

    My guess…the dog has hip displasia

  13. Lauren Says:

    Does this dog have hip dysplasia?

  14. Linda Hardy Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 9:59 am

    The condition shown in the xray is hip displasia.

  15. Barbara Majett Says:

    canine hip dysplasia

  16. Val Heart Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:00 am

    Good one, Dr Jones! It looks like either arthritis in the right hip socket area (the dog’s right) or hip dysplasia. Hope I win! Thanks! Val

  17. Dave Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:00 am

    Looks as though there is no cartilage in the hip joints.

  18. J Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:01 am

    hip dyspasia is my guess

  19. Cindy Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:01 am

    hip dysplasia? (Not sure if I was supposed to leave answer in the comments…)

  20. Ted Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:03 am

    This has got to be an x-ray of a pt with hip displasia (spelling)>>>

  21. Debbie Cooper Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:03 am

    I believe this dog has hip displasia. His symptoms are very similar to one of our Springers. I give him your Ultimate Canine Health Formula and it is helping his ability to rise from the floor, run, and play. Hershal is three years old.

  22. Carolyn Dewrance Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:03 am

    This dog has a very serious form of Hip Dysplasia,
    You can see that the right hip is well worn. And the head of the femar is not sitting correctly.
    Hope I am right???

  23. Sally Barbieri Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:04 am

    This dog has canine congital hip dysplasia.

  24. sharon Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:04 am

    hip dysplacia

  25. Al Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:05 am

    I would guess the dog had juvenile arthritis,possibly secondary to an untreated congenital hip displacia.

    Supplements would help rebuild and maintain the soft tissue.

  26. Kelly Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:05 am

    Looks like hip dysplasia to me πŸ™‚

  27. Sally Barbieri Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:05 am

    Sorry about the spelling. It should be this dog has canine congenital hip dysplasia.

  28. Pat Cline Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:06 am

    Does this dog have arthritis? Hip dysplasia seems too drastic to be a diagnosis?

  29. Mikee Fajardo Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:08 am

    hip dysplasia

  30. Cathy Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:09 am

    This dog could have either Hip Dysplasia or IDD affecting his disk and back bone. : )

    This dog has hip dysplasia

  32. Paula Powers Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:10 am

    I believe that this animal has rubbing of the femoral head into the hip socket which will result in bone spurs if it hasn’t already. It looks like the empty space between the femoral head and the hip socket has been completely filled by the femoral head-like the fluid in the joint is gone-I also see some flaking of the hip socket which indicates that some bone fragments have torn loose-I’m not a vet, but this looks like hip dysplasia

  33. Carolyn Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:11 am

    My guess is Canine Hip Dysplasia

  34. Teresa Collins Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:12 am

  35. Todd Paddock Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:13 am

    dysplastic hips

  36. Denise Fleck Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:13 am

    Could this doggie be suffering from hip dysplasia? I have had a few older Labradors experience this degeneration of the ball & socket joint and although it was troublesome for them, we were able to keep them comfortable with supplements, massage and gentle exercise. Had they been younger, they might have been candidates for surgery to really correct the problem. Thanks for all your wonderful tips Dr. Andrews and I like these quizzes! πŸ™‚

  37. Ursula Kirkpatrick Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:14 am

    The answer to your X-ray is Hip- Dysplasia
    Hope I am right !

    Hip Dysplasia?

  39. Marie Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:16 am

    It seems the condition is arthritis, right?

    bi lateral hip dysplasia

  41. Donna Hoenicke Says:

  42. Laura Andrews Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:18 am

    Is this a picture of hip dysplasia? I thought this was common in OLDER dogs but this contest made me go read about this more and apparently that is not necessarily the case. Anyways if it is NOT hip dysplasia, I am anxious to see what else it might be! πŸ™‚ Thanks.

  43. Lesley Westbrook Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:20 am

    Could the pet be suffering with hip dysplasia?

  44. Cory Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:21 am

    Hip Dysplasia or DJD would be the catch all term for basically poor hip conformation. The sockets are shallow and already showing signs or remodeling and calcification. The one on the left in particular (dogs right hip) is very shallow and rough, which looks to me like early onset (juvenile) arthritis.

  45. Karen O'Donnell Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:21 am

    Hip Dysplasia. My Border Collie had this, and it started fairly young.

  46. Linda Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:21 am

    bi lateral HD, right hip worse than left, not by much tho

  47. Margaret Churchill Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:22 am

    Is it arthritis? I thought hip dysplasia at first
    but the joints look good.

    Let me know!

  51. Gary Legere Says:

    The xray is of a dogs pelvis, hip joints. So I would be thinking hip displasia, arthritis.

  52. Vicki Birch Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:28 am

    Definitely hip dysplasia, poor young soul !!

  53. Sandra DenBraber Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:30 am

    definately hip dysplasia my dog’s xpray was worse

  54. Karen G. Says:

    Hip Dysplasia. My Springer suffered from this.

  55. Johnnie Says:

    This dog has hip dysplasia

  56. zahraa Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    My guess is that dog is suffering from hip dysplasia because in a hip suffering from dysplasia, two things are commonly abnormal. First, the caput instead of being a snug fit, it is a loose fit, or a partial fit. Secondly, the caput are not smooth and round, but are misshapen.
    The X-ray shows that.
    That’s how i know!

  57. Karen Blanchard Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    Looks to me that the tissue between the femoral socket and bone is torn and loose. The socket bone lacks the thicknest as shown on the other bone. Hope I win the informative book as I am deaf. When I was young I live across the street from a vet whom i ‘ve watched him neutured my dog. One day he heard my dog got hit on the road. Immediately he ran to her on the road and saved her life. My border collie, Lassie lived to be 14 1/2 years old.

  60. Jean Says:

    Hip dysplasia

  62. Tanya Martin Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:41 am

    The white masses on the bones look like arthritis. I have only heard of dogs having hip dysplasia (no personal experience) and this xray makes me very sad for this little dog. My dogs use your pet supplement and keeps them both very healthy.

    to me it looks like an inflammation

  66. Yvonne Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:48 am

    Hip dysplasia being an abnormal formation of the hip socket that would be causing lameness and arthritis.

  67. Maureen Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:49 am

    arthritis – sockets don’t appear to be flat enough for dysplasia.

  68. Adrienne Fitzpatrick Says:

    Arthitis

  69. Roberta Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 10:52 am

    If it started at about 1 yr. I would guess hip dysplasia. But, because the hips are out of alignment, I am guessing that arthritis has set in.

  74. Lynda H. MN Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 11:01 am

    My guess is arthritis in his right hip. If it was dysplasia, the hip would be out of its socket, which it isn’t.

  94. David Huddlestonsmith Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 11:40 am

    My diagnosis would be bilateral femoral head necrosis, worse on the right side resulting in a dysplastic hip problem. This certainly could appear to be Hip Dysplasia, but it would not be due to an Acetabular abnormality as in the more “run of the mill Hip Dysplasia”.

  95. David Huddlestonsmith Says:

    maybe hip dysplasia?

  103. Stephanie Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 11:52 am

    My guess is that the xray shows hip dysplasia. The cup of the acetabulum is flattened and the hips don’t fit into that cup well. The ball of the femur is also losing bone and slowly disintegrating. The hip on the right seems to have more bone loss than the one on the left (picture right/left).

    On a side note, my dog had been limping and very slow to get up. One week after I started her on your supplement, she hasn’t limped once – and we’re at three months and counting! Yipee! THANK YOU!!

  104. Martha Hoyt Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 11:53 am

    I will guess hip dysplasia, like so many of the previous answers….though I had not heard of cats being able to get it, and have been fortunate that none of my many canine companions have had to deal with it

    Hip dysplasia. Usually found in larger breeds of dogs and long bodied, short legged dogs like Dachshounds.

  109. Margaret. Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    I would say that the x-ray shows hip dysplasia in the right hip as you are looking at it on the screen.
    The ball and socket joint are out of sync.

  110. Holly Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    It looks to me like the first and bottom disk have black spots in them with a space in the second one from top. Not sure what the technical prognosis would be called. However, I think that is the problem for this poor animal. Could be arthritis, dislocated disk or a disease of some sort? I’m not a Dr. but, thought this was a good TEST to take anyway. LOL Thank YOU!

  117. Debora Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 12:24 pm

  118. Lorrie-Ann Says:

    well, it seems that it would inded be hip dysplasia with some arthritis in the joint as well.

  137. Carol Johnston Says:
    July 9th, 2010 at 1:39 pm

    I think this dog has degenerative joint disease as a result of chronic hip dysplasia with resultant osteoarthritis which seems to be very advanced for a dog of this age. There could also be a weakening of the gluteal muscles which could result in increased pain on extension of the hips.

    I would guess hip dysplasia in the right hip, and maybe arthritis in the other as well I have arthritis in both knees, and know what it did to my gait.

  140. Cindy Berube Says:

    This is definitely hip dysplasia.

    I think it is one of two things or both. Hip Displasis and or on the left side of photo, I don’t know the name of the bone. It’s the one with the socket and it’s just ahead (toward the front of animal) it looks like there is a hair line crack.

    hip dysplasia with artritis

    hip dysplasia

    Might sound weird in a young dog, but I had a shepherd-collie cross with it, I think from birth. She couldn’t jump, but she could run! When it was painful, she knew where the pain pills were kept and would take my father there to get them. In later years, my mother could tell when my father’s arthritis would bother him by checking the dog’s condition in the morning.

    What gets me is most people say hip dysplasia when a dog has trouble walking. However, I’ve had two with degenerative myelopathy — exteriorly, it looks like dysplasia, but it isn’t.

    I think this dogs hips are in the wrong socket?my english in the medicine world is not that good so I don’t know if they call this hip displasia?
    Maybe he had an accident or so? I cannot even Imagine in how much pain this dog is! Did you help him? Thanks for all you do it is greatly appreciated. Have a great weekend

    Have no idea how you will pick the winner, but I’m going to throw in my 2 cents on it being CONGENITAL hip dysplasia.Given this dog’s young age, I’m guessing it could only be the congenital form that some breeds are more susceptible to. Will be interesting to find out what breed this dog is…

    When my Show Golden Retriever’s were about 2 years old I would have their hips X rayed before even thinking about breeding them. I understood that there wasn’t any Golden Retriever with !00% perfect hips. Hip Dysplasia looks to be present on the X ray’s, the socket is very shallow obviously causing the dog a lot of pain.

    I think that this dog has hip dysplasia. Both of my Saint Bernards were diagnosed in their first years. They both had TPO’s within that first year. Beaudacious has passed but his sister, Rosie, is 10 years old this year. I can hear the arthritis crackle when she walks and have noticed recently that she is getting weaker in the hind quarters, sometimes walking on her knees. This is all new and I am wondering what, if anything, could I be giving her, doing for her, to make her life comfortable. She is currently not on any medications. I fear the day that she will be of sound mind but unable to walk. I could never carry a 168 pound dog in and out to potty. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I want to assure that she is as comfortable as possible for the remainder of her life.

    I believe this dog is showing signs of arthritis, especially in the hips, given the fact that the dog exhibited pain on extension of hips. Also, it was stated that sometimes cats are seen with these sypmtoms, which leads me to diagnose arthritis.

    I believe this dog has hip displasia. I adopted my dog in Feb. 2010 after he had surgery for hip dysplasia. The leg is now shorter than the other back leg so he limps and runs with that leg held up. It seems to be taking a long time for it to heal. He’s between 1 & 3 yrs. old. Can he get displasia in his other leg?

    I recognize that x-ray, from having seen similar ones throughout Grovers life. diagnosed at 6 months, they gave her 6 years to live, without surgery. glucosamine gave her 12+ happy, playful years (with tons of running!), dying of unrelated cancer. dogs I had know with replacement surgery had a lesser quality of life than she did. hip dysplasia is not the death sentence some vets lead you to believe.

    It appears that the dog has arthritis in it’s right hip. There is a lot of discoloration due to inflammation. The dog’s joint appears to be worn and does not appear to look symmetrical like the left side (the dog’s left side).

    Hip dysplasia was my first guess from the shallow socket and the acetabulum not making a nice fit into the socket. My cat was one of the sad cases in cats and she had surgery pelvic head osteotomy and runs and jumps as well as any other cat I have!Hers was said to be due to an injury though which no one witnessed or has knowledge of.

    Here’s my analytical, non-medically educated guess. Without having more detail/history as to the dog’s breed, age in this ex-ray, whether there was an injury previous to 1 yr old, etc., I feel the poor thing has arthritis (maybe osteo?). And though both joints look bad, it’s right side (left, on xray) appears to be worse than the left (right, on xray). In this scenario, it may be favoring the worse side to ease it’s pain & could be resulting in the malformation of it’s top left bone, which looks to be either less developed or deteriorating, esp where it connects to the spine. Also, the lack of lubrication may be wearing at the hip sockets, causing bone deterioration &/or calcium buildup & making them appear more shallow. The rest of the hip/spine structure looks normal, which leads me to believe it’s not Dysplasia. Since glucosamine lubricates the joints (Is yours shellfish free? – some humans have alergic reactions to it) & bone has been proven to grow back given proper nutrition, your supplement may indeed be what the ‘natural’ DMV ordered. Hope I’m right because I think this would be easier to reverse/heal & less painful for the poor thing. Λ† Λ†

    Considering that I can’t actually see the Xray, I’m guessing Arthritis due to a bad case of Hip Displasia, which, btw, even if it is congenital doesn’t mean thet the dog will develop it!

    If the mother is well fed on raw meaty bones etc, (and natural supplements if needed) before, during & after gestation, the pups raised on natural groung like dry clean earth, grass and such (not concrete, or wood or plastic), where their feet have purchase and the joints are not stressed by the pup slipping all over the place, and of course once wheaned the pups are also fed a raw diet (without cereals), kept lean and exercised as nature intended by playing with littermates on grass, dirt, sand etc, then there is a good chance it will never develop!!

    I’m thinking maybe osteoarthritis too in the right hip joint? I remember seeing an x-ray of my father’s hip before having replacement surgery and observing the same bone de-generation, except in a human hip of course!! No wonder he was in so much pain for so many years. He’s a bionic man now!!

    After careful consideration of the x-ray, the problem is obvious: Darth Vader has infiltrated this poor creature’s pelvis.

    This dog has bi-lateral hip dysplasia

  275. Elisabeth Says:

    I believe I see some extra bone growth just below the actual hip joint (on the inside). The actual joints are not alligned with the sockets and there is some extra bone and cartilage growth on top of the joints. This has to be a congenital issue – hip dysplasia.

    I believe the x-ray of the dog’s hips show that he/she has hip dysplasia.

    Dog Hip Dysplasia
    (Doghipdysplasia)

    This dog has hip dysplasia (shown on the X-ray). Are you picking the winner randomly?

  281. Melanie Says:

    My immediate thought was hip dysplasia – like almost everyone else! Then I read someones comment about Perthes disease, which I’d never heard of so googled it – if it’s a small breed dog then maybe that’s what it is? Don’t mind if I win or lose but I’m just intrigued now to know what it is!

    I guess he has Hip Displasia, Looks like a build up of calcium around the joint. He would definetly feel very arthritic on cold or damp days.

  286. Carla Says:
    July 11th, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    It looks like a bruised or misaligned spine…probably hit his back roughly a few months ago and as it hurts, he limped. A chiropractor can align his back and voila-no more hurt.

    Hip Dysplasia.
    My German shepherd pup had this at 9 months i had to put her to sleep.

    I think the dog is too young for arthritis so I’ll say hip dysplasia.

    Looks like a case of hip dysplasia which, I hope, was relieved.

    I think this dog has the beginning of Hipdysplasia, my dog was diagnosed with the same thing at 7 years old. She is now 11 years old today actually. The x-ray looks very similar to my dog’s.

    This dog most certainly looks like hip dysplaysia as far as I can see. Poor Baby!

    Hi Dr. Jones: I believe this dog has hip dysplasia. My german shephred mix (10 yrs. old) is starting with it but better now he is on your supplement.

    Hope all is well with you and your furry friends.

    Sincerely,

    David, Sadie (german shepherd) and Forest (german shepherd/lab mix).

    I’m guessing some type of arthritis probably due to hip dysplasia The dog’s right hip socket looks worse than the left like the lining is not as thick or as smooth as the left. I’ve never seen or had a dog with hip dysplasia, but the bones and sockets don’t look like I would expect them to.

    Dear Dr Jones

    I have not had any experience with animal x-rays, so I had to do some research before I could have a guess. From other examples I have seen, I think this animal has a condition called bilateral hip dysplasia. The caputs on both sides (to use a medical term I just learned) are not held tightly or deeply by the acetabulum, and they are also misshapen.

    Have a good day.

    This dog has calcification above the right hip joint

  304. Mandi Says:

    Severe degree of hip dysplasia, in both hips. A dog like this usually develops pain in both hips, at an early age, that worsens over time.
