Default Puppy Bumped Hip

Yesterday my puppy was playing pretty hard with my sisters dog and at one point she skimmed herself into a table and hurt herself. After slamming into the table, she stood up cried and limped for about 5 seconds then continued playing without missing a beat. I squeezed, put pressure on and stretched her whole hind area and she didn't cry or anything. I know HD is very common in GSD's so I'm wondering if I should have concern? I have no idea how the disease works or develops, so I nay be asking a stupid question...

Thanks.

when you don't know something you have to ask questions. there's
nothing stupid about asking questions. if you're concerned about
your pup's hip go to the Vet so your mind is at ease.

HD is a condition where the hip joints are not formed properly. Things like poor diet, being overweight, and continual undue stress on the hips may exacerbate the problem. Slamming into a table having a romp will not cause HD.

If she is showing no symptoms, I wouldn't worry about it. JMHO

I did not think there would be need to go see a vet as she only favored her bump for a few seconds. I'm just wondering if a small injury can even cause HD? Thanks for the replies.

a bump can cause damage and inflammation - which can cause bone to show up differently than normal on an x-ray...

HD is genetic as far as the conformation of the joint...but HD is often diagnosed on 'changes' in the bone....

If you want to establish a base line, and she is over 4 months old, get her prelim'd now.
