Dr. Kruger,

Hi Diane,

LP disease is a deterioration of the hip joints. It a uncomfortable for the dog, although usually there will adjust to the problem. I would suggest you get a jar of my Healthy Joint formula for your dog. This will help with the pain and with any luck help slow the deterioration. Surgery is sometime necessary but your vet will have to help you with that. Good luck with this case.
