Labrador retrievers are among the most popular dog breeds. They are loyal, smart and active, and they’re loving companions. Labs also face some bone and joint issues, so it’s important to know how to recognize them.
Hip dysplasia is one of the most common conditions that affect Labrador retrievers. Hip dysplasia is a genetic condition whereby the hip joint doesn’t form properly. The ball and socket may be misaligned or may not be aligned at all.
