Opinions please on hips and elbows

I don't know how to do the thumbnail pictures so here is the link. Opinions? ETA: These were done with no meds, in case that makes a difference.

From what my dogs x rays look like, her hips look nice and tight. They look for DI (distraction index) which is basically the space between the joints and from what I can see the right hip has a little gap but I think they look very good. You should still ask for your vets opinion, I was told by my vet that the JPS surgery is only done between 16-18 weeks.

Hips look good but are a little crooked.

Suck at reading elbows - no visible fractures or breaks! Lol

To my very untrained eye for looking at the hips, I'd guess them to be good/excellent?

Elbows? They bend! Haha - not even gonna try and guess that one....

Thank you everyone . They did the X-rays with no sedation whatsoever so I guess that's why they are a little crooked. That won't matter for OFA will it?
