hi,,,one of my vet friend from uk sent me this info for a 1 year golden retriever of my friend in bangalore that had HD...
HAVE COPIED HIS MESSAGE HERE BELOW:-
The idea at this stage is to restrict exercise - lead only, limit food intake and thereby limit growth (he is more skeletally mature at 12 months so this should not be a major factor) and pain relief medication - non steroidal for about 6 weeks continuous should give a good response. Generally by about 15months of age the joint has stabilised and the pain will subside. He will still need to make sure he keeps the dog's exercise steady and not allowed to overexert say at the weekend and do very little during the week. Watch the dog's weight as well and keep lean.
Surgical options at this point - I would say are generally not indicated. TPO is an option but this dog may be a little old for that now. Conservative/medical tx should suffice.
With hip dysplasia, then when he gets older he will start to suffer from painful hips again (middle-age to old dog). Use the guidance of your vets there as to what the best approach at each stage is. Some dogs benefit from surgery some manage without. The best surgical option here for old dogs with knackered hips is total hip replacement. Not sure if that is available in india. It is ofcourse very expensive surgery. Not to worry about that at this stage though.
In terms of what medication in particular - Nsaids like carprophen (?rimadyl/carprieve) should be widely available there? it is in available in Kenya. Go with what your vet has to offer. Whatever is used - use for atleast 4-6 weeks continuous rather than on and off. Also joint supplements can be beneficial if you can get the right stuff. Lot of glucosamine on the high street but most are rubbish. We use synoquin here in the UK which is a good product. Not cheap though.
Good luck with this. And I know you wouldn't but I have to say - do not breed from this dog.
Btw TPO stands for triple pelvic osteotomy
