wolfstraum a bump can cause damage and inflammation - which can cause bone to show up differently than normal on an x-ray...

HD is genetic as far as the conformation of the joint...but HD is often diagnosed on 'changes' in the bone....

If you want to establish a base line, and she is over 4 months old, get her prelim'd now.

Donovan514 I did not think there would be need to go see a vet as she only favored her bump for a few seconds. I'm just wondering if a small injury can even cause HD? Thanks for the replies.

David Winners HD is a condition where the hip joints are not formed properly. Things like poor diet, being overweight, and continual undue stress on the hips may exacerbate the problem. Slamming into a table having a romp will not cause HD.

If she is showing no symptoms, I wouldn't worry about it. JMHO

doggiedad when you don't know something you have to ask questions. there's
nothing stupid about asking questions. if you're concerned about
your pup's hip go to the Vet so your mind is at ease.
