deca durabolin(nandrolone) for hypo displazium
 
Hello.I am from Croatia and i heard for this forum and I have one important question because I am despered.I have beautiful male black german shepherd 10 months old and 2 months ago he is diagnosed hypo displasium E.and for a some time he was better but from 5 days ago he started limp on his right leg.he can run but when he is walking he limp and flip his right leg.in our country vets does not know much about deca duraboline but i heard that is only cure which would help him.my Veterinarian said to me that i must build up stronger muscle in his front legs and I know deca would help that.so my questio is:is it to early to give my dog deca duraboline(nandrolone) because he is 10 months old and which dose would i give him.sorry for my bad english and thanks for the answers.

Zdravo Zvone! Take it easy. many dogs here have hip dysplasia and are living a pretty normal life. Has the vet done any x-rays? That is the only way to diagnose hip dysplasia. young German shepherds are very prone to pano, growth pains, which can cause limping as well. Can you post your dog's x-ray, it will be easier to advise you if people have a better understanding of how bad the problem is.

Giving steroids to the dog is normally not the first course of treatment.

Depending on how severe the case is, some puppies are good candidates for the FHO procedure (femoral head osteotomy). There are many different supplement options and different medications. You can do a search on this board for previous threads.

Interesting. Deca is commonly used as a Performance Enhancement drug that does also help joints but there are lots of sides in people imagine there would be lots of sides in dogs too....
