Canine hip dysplasia is an affection which affects the locomotion of the animal very clear and severe. Genetical factors and others (miopathy, painful diseases associated with canine hip dysplasia, neuronal disfunction, exaggerated elasticity of the pectineu muscle) are known to be the cause of the disease.

We could also blame the feeding habits for growing puppies. During the growth period, an exes in fatty food can cause a beginning for canine hip dysplasia and other bone diseases. It is know that canine hip dysplasia affects most of the time large breed dogs. In our study we wanted to check the efficacy of the TPO operation in unilateral canine hip dysplasia grades 3 and 4.

We took 5 dog breeds into consideration, with different gender and age (6 months-1,3 years). The diagnostic was made observing the clinical signs and X ray.For the stabilization of the cut bone segment we used specific plates for osteosinthesis with different angles. Post operation, dogs were followed for 10 days and checked for their vital signs as well as local modifications and started using the affected limb 11 days after the operation.
