Hips! Take a look...

I'm always intrigued by the hip threads so I thought I'd post my own for comments.

6 month hips

Sorry I don't have a light box so I put them in the window, hence the screen and the weird anomalies from the trees in the background. Hopefully it's not too bad.

I don't look at baby hips very often, but those look beautiful to me!

Sweet Mammy, you don't have to have them done, and most people will do prelims at 12 months or so (if they do prelims), so you're fine. I did them because the breeder arranged for them to be done (3 dogs were done). Didn't suspect anything wrong, and now I know for sure.

Lies, I think they look very nice!!! The positioning is a little crooked though. Where to look for those open growth plates (I always wanted to know that but it's so rare to see puppy xrays)?

Well on the hips he said the tip of the ball joint, see how it looks like there's a line and it has a cap on it?

There was some on the elbows, but this is a terrible picture of the scan (too much distraction from the background)

Re: Hips! Take a look...

Thank you for the explanation! I checked Anton's xrays at 11 months old and he still had that line on his joints even though not so prominent.

Re: Hips! Take a look...

I did the same thing with an experienced vet when Timer wasonly about eight months old. The dog is very active and I just wanted to make sure the hips were OK. At two years I did get OFA Certification as good.
