So I took my dog to the vet today...
There is a big difference in survey X-rays for information and OFA X-rays for a score. Poor positioning for an OFA, can cause a lower score. But a vet can usually tell if there is an issue with hips if they are not perfectly positioned. So, since you wanted OFA her recommendation makes sense. The hip films were going to be for "so you know". Not medically needed for the problem presented.
