Not sure. How old is your dog?

I'm sure someone will have an answer.

Bulldogs Hips

Its quite common for their hips to pop. They were bred for the purpose of fighting bulls, which would involve biting into a bull and in short, much like a bull rider, tryng to stay on, before been shuck off and hitting the ground. A normal dogs hips would shatter, a bulldogs can disslocate. Thats why as they get older, their hips are a cause of concern.
