Sorry. They are probably something you can work with but no way to deny that hip is bad; there is already remodeling of the socket. Positioning may be an issue due to the hip itself being out of the socket.

It looks like signs of arthritis on the right elbow but that may / may not have any clinical implications. We have DJD1 on both and even a vet rehab person has no concerns about the elbows. I don't have enough savvy to read any more than osteophytes on the aconeal ridge.....
