wolfstraum How old are these pups? When you say "growth issues" - no connection to hip dysplasia, and probably panosteitis or "pano"

Again - hips are not certifiable until the dog is 2....and many people assume bad hips if there is any problem at all....

absolutely nothing wrong with Good or Fair hips.....IF - and I mean IF - there are dogs from the litter wiht HD, I'd bet there is some sign of risk in the pedigree further back.

carmspack there is nothing wrong with ofa fair to ofa good !

what needs to be examined is the orthopedic status deeper into the pedigree. That means the mother's litter mates , her sire , her dam, their production record . Similarily the sire, his litter mates, his sire , his dam , their production record.

do you have one of the progeny , and are you worried and have you done x rays.

orthopedic health is multi factorial which means that genetics (indirect mode of inheritance) and environment and NUTRITION play a role.

holland I am not sure what you mean by bone growth issues. Also 2 out of how many puppies and not sure what the average percentage of HD in a litter is-the ofa website would probably state that-

Freestep How old are these puppies? Have they been x-rayed to determine HD?

fair to good hips/ litter has issues

My breeder bred a good hip male to a fair hip female - puppies are having bone growth issues and two with HD - two different litters. How do you determine where the problem lies?
