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....
