    Default Hip Dysplasia

    Just found out Talulah has hip Dysplasia. Should I let my breeder know about it since she uses her brother for a stud or does that matter?

    I would definately let the breeder know about something like this. We had let our breeder know about something that hasnt been proved to be genetic just to give them knowledge that it was there! That is something that should be check before breeding I assume but I could be incorrect..Im sure others will chime in soon

    I agree, tell the breeder. Talulah's littermates' owners should know, too, and her stud brother should be checked out!

    Poor Talulah So what does that mean for her?
    The breeder would probably be appreciative of the information. I think that's why so many good breeders like to keep in touch...they want to know how those pups turn out.

    Good luck with her...I hope the dysplasia doesn't mean anything too uncomfortable for her.

    I would tell the breeder, they need to find out which one is passing this, whether it's the male of female and not breed that bully again. this is why they should have their breeding stock checked for this before breeding. Sorry to hear your bully has this.

    Vet put her on a joint supplement, eventually she'll be on pain pills. He said not to let her gain weight, she's a small dog so that's in her favor.

    If they are a reputable breeder, they would have already tested him for HD prior to using him as a stud. Her brother shouldn't be used for stud at all if he also has HD. But jst because one sibling has it, doesn't mean the other does. Also, just because parents are cleared, doesn't mean their offspring won't have HD.

    Hello, many good comments thus far. You did not say HOW you know your EBD has HD. I hope you will update and give more exact info how was the test, what type of test done? Yes, if indeed your Bullie has HD better to know now. Proper care can provide a long healthy life.Also was stated that just because both parents are clear does not mean the puppies will or will-not have HD. BUT certainly the odds are best for parents that have been OFA certified or pinhip checked against have HD. Good Day
