Default X ray of 8.5 year old who was OFA Good at two

Non sedated x-rays looking for back issues.
I was surprised at how good the hips looked for all the wear and tear on his body.
I do believe you can see some minor arthritic changes around the hip socket but nothing really bad.
Not an OFA set, but the positioning looked fairly decent compared to OFA x-rays. Legs maybe more elevated than normal? could have been pulled more to midline? (not enough overlap with hip)

They look very good. I don't see any spondylosis, but I have only seen that in side views, so I am not sure if I would be able to recognize it in this view.

Yes, since it is hip section of the forum, I did not show the laeteral view. Spondylosis near the end of the ribs. Fuzziness on x-ray around sacrum I learned was simply a full bowel..though holistic vet does feel she sees some arthiritis in the lower spine.
