Elbow Dysplasia

Elbow Dysplasia is a complex condition where the elbow joint develops abnormally. It can be caused by a combination of genes and environmental factors such as exercise and early life experiences. Most diagnoses happen before the age of 2 years.

The condition can cause pain and severe cases can lead to lameness.
