That is what HD is, Hip dysplasia is an abnormal formation of the hip socket. OFA rates the changes as borderline, mild and moderate and severe.
Your vet is not knowledgable about HD if he says there is a shallowness in the socket but that is not HD.
Arthritis doesn't show up immediately in HD, it can take years if at all.
Send the xrays to OFA or find another vet who has knowledge about hips.

Attlas' Hips X-Ray
Attlas, my 2.5 year old male, had his hip x-rayed today. Results were pretty good and a little confusing. No HD but his right joint (socket) was a little hollow and no arthritis according to the vet. I could barely notice any difference on the film. The vet advised putting him on Dasuquin. Does this sound like the right thing to do? Can a joint be a little hollow and there be no HD? Is it ok to put Attlas on Dasuquin as a preventative measure?
