In this episode (016), I interview Dr. Daly and Dr. Csiszer, two board certified orthopedic surgeons, all about hip dysplasia, including treatment options – both surgical and non-surgical. We discuss the pros, cons, and various considerations and risks of each surgical technique. We also talk about medical or conservative management, meaning no surgery, and how well dogs can do without surgery. We talk at length about total hip replacements in dogs and even touch on pain medications, supplements, and some alternative treatment approaches. This 3-part series is a MUST-LISTEN if you have a dog with hip dysplasia.
In this episode (002), Dr. Kate McDermott, an integrative medicine veterinarian, shares valuable information on the various approaches to veterinary medicine. Learn about using food as therapy and walk away with valuable tips on simple and inexpensive human foods we can feed our dogs to greatly improve their health and help with arthritis.
