So, what should you do? For those who have younger pets, why wait? Do you really need expense of an x-ray to make a decision about this? Of course not.
By nature, pets are playful and active. The eventual consequence is that they will develop joint pain as a result of trauma, aging, or both.
A Simple Solution Be proactive now. As adults, many of us wish we had done more to care for our joints earlier in life. Most of us take vitamins and minerals as supplements and smart consumer is using a liquid glucosamine of highest quality.
The cost of best liquid formulas is low and is given to pets based on body weight. For smaller animals, cost is negligible compared to potential for problems down road. For a pet that weighs 10-20 pounds, we are talking about pennies.
My suggestion is to use a high-quality liquid glucosamine for maintenance early on. As that article indicated, number of pets with hip dysplasia is very high even with no symptoms being displayed. There is no reason to wait until your pet is in pain and suffering.
