The second thing to consider with your goldendoodle puppy is dog food. As in humans, diet is the #1 cause of health issues, including hip displaysia. There have been reports that say hip displaysia was not common until the invention of mass produced commercial dog food. That is why we feed a premium dog food like Life's Abundance. Just like our children, we do not compromise on poor food. We can give on a few other areas, but not food. It's essential to life. We hope you will take this #2 step seriously and feed a premium puppy food to your goldendoodle.
