Ravewolf Good news! This was scored a GOOD for hips for OFA and elbows came back Normal! Now I need to do PennHip. One out of two scores down. :>

Msmaria This website helped me a lot in understanding what members on here were talking about regarding hip positioning.

Thank you so much. I have him on glucose pills(he's been on them from the start) and I am going to see what else we can give him to make sure that he is as healthy as humanly possible. Do you have any suggestions with diet? Actually... I should probably just go look at the nutrition section. We almost switched to the BARF diet but money willing is another story but I've been told BARF can be pretty affordable too. I will look into this more! Thank you again Jocoyn.

Ravewolf Yes. His elbows look simply excellent which is great news! I have been looking into the Pennhip also so thank you for that advice.

As for this xray I would love to hear more about opinions on it in particular-- first impressions and what you think it may score and if I should be alarmed.

Thank you again!

jocoyn Have you also done the elbows? ED can be more debilitating than HD.

JeanKBBMMMAAN Go somewhere that they do PennHip.

Ravewolf Oh, I know this. Health testing isn't the only thing I plan to do and have done. I just hope that these are alright to send in because OFA scores is, in my opinion, a considerable part of the overall picture when screening a dog for breeding potential. Might I ask what is wrong here for positioning? I am trying to figure it out so that I can critique it to the vet. This is his second try and did these twice because the first ones I was not at all happy with the positioning. These I thought were alright but then again I am very new and getting a seasoned opinion is highly valued!

Thank you!

wolfstraum the position is not so hot....they don't look too bad overall....I'd say they would pass IF the position of the one side was fixed and there was still good coverage...

Hips are only 1 criteria of using a dog for breeding - esp a male.....lots more to it if you want someone with a good female to consider him
