Hip dislocations can develop under a number of circumstances. Prominent reasons are trauma and pre-existing hip problems such as hip dysplasia. Take your dog to your veterinarian as soon as possible after any trauma or injury, including those that lead to limping or inability to walk properly. Early intervention can save your dog from life-threatening injuries and reduce future problems, such as arthritis in cases of orthopedic (bone and joint) trauma.

Traumatic Fractures

When coxofemoral luxations occur due to trauma, the trauma may also cause fractures to occur.

Hip dysplasia

Hip dysplasia is a developmental abnormality that leads to instability between the head of the femur and the acetabulum. Severely dysplastic hips may be more likely to become dislocated or may be more difficult to keep in the joint after repair.
