Looking for advice

14 month old female. Sorry for the picture quality. I spoke with two vets at the same hospital. The first vet said the right was real bad and the left was slightly better. The second vet said it's not great but no "bad." I was told to keep her thin and no high impact play... I'm going to research what supplements I should be giving her. In the mean time I'd like to here some feedback on the attached xray.

Sorry, I can not give a response on the xray/hips, but I am curious about the positioning and what others have to say. If nothing else it'll bump the thread.

Are there any signs that your dog is experiencing discomfort? (Outward signs of pain, tiring easily, hesitating when getting up after a nap, limping, etc.)

Can you post the entire xray? I would like to see positioning of the knees. Looks a bit off.

I have noticed she will lift her front right paw and hold it off the ground randomly. No other signs of discomfort.

@ Smithie86

I didn't notice I had cropped the picture , here is the full image.
