Hip Dysplasia (Poorly Formed Hip Joint)

Nutrition plays a strong role in helping with the natural treatment of hip dysplasia. It is a degenerative condition brought about by generations of poor feeding practices.

With hip dysplasia part of the problem is actually related to poor liver function. The liver affects tendons and ligaments and if the liver is weak the tendons and ligaments that would hold the joint tight are too weak to do so.

Prevention and treatment:

Feeding your dog raw foods (organic whenever possible) is crucial in treating hip dysplasia. Be sure to include plenty of bones. I feed my dogs who "once had" inflammatory joint problems the following:

50% raw vegetables (minced through a blender) (broccoli, zucchini...etc.)

30% bony meat (chicken necks and backs)

20% raw meat

Some days I give my dogs chicken necks and backs. Other days I mix raw meat (ground) with raw vegetables (pullverized) and add whole food supplements to this mix.

Whole food supplements:

• 1 tablespoon of wild-crafted micro algae powder (for minerals and vitamins).

• 1 capsule a day of full-spectrum friendly bacteria blended with micro algae.

One of the best friendly bacteria products in the market today is a wide-spectrum friendly bacteria supplement blended with fructo-oligosaccharides. Following are its ingredients: Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus salivarius, Streptococcus faecium, Streptococcus thermophilus, Acerola and Rose Hips blend, wild micro algae, Jerusalem Artichoke, Lipase, Amylase, Protease, and Cellulase.

Other supplements to reduce inflammation and pain:

Plant based enzymes:

Systemic enzyme therapy is used to stimulate the immune system. Enzymes improve circulation, help speed tissue repair, bring nutrients to the damaged area, and remove waste products. Give your dog enzymes a few times a day on an empty stomach.

One of the best enzyme products in the market today is a wide-spectrum blend of 12 active enzymes with digestion-enhancing ingredients such as micro algae (high mineral food), fennel, ginger and cayenne pepper.

Wheat Sprouts:

Wheat sprouts as a whole food supplement provides one of the most potent antioxidant enzymes to fight inflammation; superoxide dismutase (SOD). Since SOD requires copper and zinc as co-facters to initiate maximum effectiveness, a whole food supplement that combines other foods high in minerals would be the best type of supplement. I recommend a whole food antioxidant made of organic wheat sprouts, micro algae and kale sprouts.
