A. This could very well be severe symptoms related to the hi dysplasia. Is he on anti inflammatory medications? if not this is the time to start, go to your vet and discuss this issue with him..
If he is already on pain killers, he might need changing to a stronger one or add additional pain relief.
other things that could help are joint supplements such as flexadine as well as keeping him on a proper weight to avoid pressure on the joints.
