Question OFA Hips and Elbows

I just came back from the vet after x-raying my 3 year old male German shepherd dog. I asked the vet but they wouldn't tell me anything about how his hips and elbows are and I really don't want to have to worry for 2-3 weeks for his results to come back. Can anyone take a look and tell me what you think? I think that his hips look good but I don't know what to look for when it comes to elbows. Thank you for your time! (I removed the vet office and his name for privacy reasons)

You can do prelims for your own info at 6 mos, but OFA won't read them at that age, you're right.

I can't see the films too well. Your vet should tell you what they think. Unless they are not familiar with the breed.

As far as pre-lims. I don't do them. Things can change so I usually don't OFA till 2 yrs.
