My Great Dane, Junior, has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia. He is only 8-months-old and I feel so badly for him. What can be done? He is a very big boy. Junior is already 120 lbs and 34" at the withers. I followed all my veterinarian's advice on how to prevent hip dysplasia, too! He's been eating a very healthy food called Eagle Pack Large & Giant Breed Puppy. I only feed him 8 cups per day to keep him lean. It's a very good quality food with 23% protein. Junior has been getting Cosequin every day since he was very young. It contains Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM and a lot more. He was the same height at 7 months, but has since gained 10 pounds, which concerns me. I'm considering cutting back on his food to get the extra 10 pounds off of him. I take Junior for walks, but he is never allowed to run or jump. I take him for a 20-minute walk twice a day. I was waiting until he was 2-years-old to start running with him. I never let him jump for any reason. I took him in yesterday to get his hip x-rays. I was absolutely shocked when the veterinarian told me that he was severe hip dysplasia in both hips! He will be getting his neuter and gastropexy in 5-days.
