My 2 yr old male has cow hocks and I'm concerned about hip dysplasia. I know there really is not a link or proof that the two go hand in hand but I figured I would post some information and hopefully get some feedback.
He is 100% west German showline black/red/tan. He is very healthy, runs like crazy and seems fine. No pain, gets up fine, jumps into the truck, does not hop up stairs, etc. I have noticed that his back legs sometimes get close together while standing still ( never off balance though) and he seems to bunny hop a little, not real noticeable at slow speeds. Should I get x-rays?
