From http://www.dogarthritisblog.info. Dog arthritis can often develop in the hip joint, which consists of a ball and a socket that connects a dog's hind legs to its pelvis. This hip joint is supported by a combination of ligaments, connective tissues, cartilage and joint fluid which allow the ball joint to rotate freely within the socket. When this ball and socket connection is loose (also known as subluxation or laxity), the hip can become arthritic and deformed in a condition known as hip dysplasia.
