A 2.5 year old male Labrador retriever dog was presented to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex with history of abnormal gait, difficulties in jumping, intermittent lameness in its hind legs, reluctant to rise up stairs and exercise intolerance. The case was suspected for hip dysplasia on the basis of history, clinical signs, physical examination and palpation of hip joint. Radiographic examination revealed subluxation of the femoral head and increased angle of femoral neck inclination. The case was successfully managed by chondro-protective agent, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), weight reduction and exercise restriction.
