Hipscores?

And once again fingers xd i've picked correct place to post!
I am interested in opinions on these hip scores. don't really understand them exect that the lower the score the better. But how 'high' is bad? e.g will a score of 8 get HD at a young age? will 3? How much to parents hipscores impact on their offspring? Are they sometimes better than their parents/worse etc
This is my dog Molly's Dad's hipscores:
Alternatively can anyone decode/ explain what each section is/what it all means? : (Father is Australian mother is kiwi - hipscores done in NZ i believe if that makes any difference?)



All I have from mother is:
Total Hipscore (excellent) NZVA left 2, right 2 total of 4 (anything under 5 is excellent)

Thank you so much for any help, I just can't seem to get info from google that Ican actualy understand!

Well, I think this says what you need to know--not sure what else you'd need to hear.

Total Hipscore (excellent) NZVA left 2, right 2 total of 4 (anything under 5 is excellent)

Also: "Total: 5 (Maximum 106)"

Well, the total points possible for the section are 36. that would argue that the max points per subsection are 6. So, yes, I think an 8 would panic me.

This evaluation breaks down and scores the appearance of the different areas of the hip joints. As you can see, what matters is the overall evaluation. In general, you won't get a 6 in subluxation without it also having an effect on other areas of the hip--the ability for a hip to move that much in the socket leads to deterioration in the joint, thus affecting other areas of the hip.

Re: Subluxation -- Let me google that for you... Hip Dislocation
