The thing with HD is that the gene has to be present in order for her to develop dysplasia, environmental issues such as excessive high impact running/jumping, being over weight etc can help to develop the dysplasia if the gene is present in the first place.

Hopefully you have a good vet and he/she will be able to guide you onto the right treatment/management plan.

Hopefully she is just dealing with a sprain type injury. Let us know what the vet says.
