Compensatory changes: More than likely the left hip dysplasia is causing asymmetric gait which is being compensated for by hypertrophy of the right pelvic and leg muscles. Since you do not provide any information about the severity, symptoms or x-ray findings, it would not be appropriate to comment on treatment.
