Gunner's hip

Hello all,

I am new to the GSD forum and this is my first post. I have a 7 month old male GSD we took him to the vet after we noticed some limping after play at the dog park. The vet took one look at the fact that he was a GSD and was convinced of hip dysplasia. After she looked at the x-rays she said his hips look great. What do you guys think?

Also I read on another thread to avoid exercise. We don't take him on long walks, but should we avoid taking him to the dog park all together?

Hips look good. Could be lots if things including pano, knee issue, soft tissue problem. I would rest him for a few days and then gradually increase exercise.

Good luck.
