Hypertrophic osteodystrophy: Herbal treatment, Diagnosis


Pets are very common in every house nowadays and are the most loved ones in the house. While your pet can become prone to some diseases, he can be severely affected by the adverse symptoms. Today we will talk about one such disease that is Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy. This is a rapidly growing disease in various breeds of dogs. Talking about the prevalence, male dogs of age 2-8 months old are affected more than female dogs. This condition varies from low-grade symptoms to high-grade severe symptoms. We will also discuss the side effects of free ayurvedic treatment options for your beloved pets.


Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy is a long-bone disease in dogs usually in bilateral limbs. Mainly the distal ulna, radius, and tibia bones are affected. The defect is caused due to the excess deposition of bone outside the periosteum initiated with metaphyseal trabecular disruption. Not managing the condition at these stages can lead to the further progression of the disease and that can cause severe inflammation and necrosis of the bone. In the acute form of this disease low-grade lameness, fever, and other symptoms are found, while in severe stages the condition can also lead to angular limb deformities. The pre-acute stage is very important in this disease in which pain, palpation, lethargy, and dehydration-like symptoms are observed for the early prognosis and treatment of your pet. So do observe your pet closely and immediately report any changes in his normal behavior.


Ayurvedic Aspect

The Prakriti and the doshas are the main ones in the formation of a Human being’s body and the balance of these doshas and Prakriti is a must for the normal well-being and healthy functioning of the body. The same is the case of Animals. Your pet Dogs become ill due to the imbalance of these tridoshas in the body. The disease if not treated on time will cause severe future complications and will complicate the management of the disease by increasing the doshas adverse effects on the body of the Dog. Proper ayurvedic treatment is efficient to normalize the doshas levels for healthy well-being. All medications and the dose is recommended according to the pet type and condition. General Ayurvedic drugs that are used in the management of this disease are discussed below in the article.


The exact cause of this disease in dogs is not known. But since the disease is related to bones and mainly bone-related diseases occur due to the deficiency or excess of Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Calories, calcium, and certain minerals. But according to the researchers, in dogs, these Vitamins and minerals are not at all responsible for the occurrence of Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy.
