“For too long, many veterinarians who have diagnosed hip dysplasia in young patients have informed the owners that the consequences will have to be dealt with later in life, when signs of osteoarthritis develop.... A proactive hip wellness program, on the other hand, would attempt to modify the course of dysplasia toward normalcy at an early age, which might result in little if any osteoarthritis during the course of the affected animal's life.”
