This handsome chap is Oscar, a 4yr old wire haired Hungarian Vizsla. Oscar has been a regular visitor to the hydrotherapy unit since August 2014 after being diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia.

Hip dysplasia is an abnormal formation of the hip socket that, in its more severe form, can eventually cause crippling lameness and painful arthritis of the joints. It is a genetic trait that is affected by environmental factors.

It is common in many dog breeds, particularly the larger breeds, and is the most common single cause of arthritis of the hips.

By having regular hydrotherapy sessions we have been able to manage his condition really well over the years, and he leads a normal active life as a result.
