Griffey X-Rays 3 years old

Took my 3 year old in this morning for X-rays due to a slight limp in the right side. Was told he had HD 😢

Can you please let me know what you think? Is it essential I see a specialist now to explore surgery options?Griffey X-Rays 3 years old-imageuploadedbypetguide1463003823.969630.jpgGriffey X-Rays 3 years old-imageuploadedbypetguide1463003833.622211.jpg

Kind of hard to tell with X-rays that twisted on positioning.

But I don't see much mottling or arthritis. The one hip look shallow, but the pelvis is crazy twisted, so I can't comment more than that v

Yeah when my wife showed them to me I immediately thought they were poorly positioned based on the knowledge I've received here.

Hard to tell, but I don't see anything drastic. Not sure if those hips would even be considered displastic.

It might be worthwhile to have the dog xrayed by an ortho vet -or take those xrays to an ortho vet-
