If your dog is suffering from hip dysplasia, consider sending her to physical therapy. One type of treatment involves hydrotherapy, which allows a dog to strengthen her muscles through resistance exercises in an underwater treadmill. Another type of treatment is canine massage which helps restore circulation to canine tissues and helps the muscles relax and maintain tone. Canine massage promotes healing by strengthening weakened muscles and dispersing pain.
