Canine Hip Dysplasia: Breed Effects

Canine Hip Dysplasia: Breed Effects

S W Martin et al. Can Vet J.

Abstract

This paper is a refinement of previous studies in that only suitably radiographed dogs were included in the data base. The rate of hip dysplasia varied widely by breed from five percent in siberian huskies to eighty-three percent in english bulldogs. There was a significant difference in the prevalence of dysplasia within at least two breeds; golden retrievers and old english sheepdogs. Physical size per se did not appear to be an important determinant of hip dysplasia.
