What is hip dysplasia?

by PetFirst Pet Insurance

Hip dysplasia is a painful genetic disorder in which the ball and socket of an animal’s hip joint don’t properly fit together and are only loosely fitted. Common in many breeds of cats and dogs, it can cause significant pain and even lameness. Hip dysplasia is most common in larger dogs, though small breeds and cats can be harmed by this condition, too. When you insure your pet with one of our pet insurance policies, we’ll help pay for the costs associated with hip dysplasia.
