According to research, about the hip structure disorder, dogs who have eaten calcium powder are much earlier than dogs that have not been eaten, and the symptoms are more serious after the onset. Calcium can promote bone growth, but it cannot promote the rapid growth of muscles with bones. When the bone grows quickly, the muscles cannot keep up, and pull the femoral head out of the joint nest, causing the structural changes in the hip joint, and changes in orthopedic mechanics. In addition, the dogs have a large amount of exercise on weekdays, the bones have increased, the hip joints are loosened, the joint nests become narrow, and the femoral head is smoothed. In order to stabilize the joints, the physiological function of animals promotes the formation of bone spines and eventually leads to degenerative arthritis. The occurrence of this disease is irreversible.
