5 month old x ray

Hi guys! I took my 5 month old to get a hip X-ray done here in Italy and I was looking for some opinions on his hips. Thanks in advance!

I would not have paid for that Xray, positioning is terrible! Hopefully other weigh in.

Here is a good article on the importance of positioning:

Now that i’m back in America I took My now 6 month old to get his hips re checked and the vet says they look great! No hip dysplasia 🙂 I’m so relieved!

I did the x rays at 5 months old because he had needed to be sedated to clean out his ear. He had a piece of broke stuck deep in his ear. So, while he was sedated the vet in Italy did his hip X-rays for me. I redid them at 6 months because the Italian vet told me he was mildly dysplastic. The breeder told me I should redo them when I had the chance because the positioning in the original X- Ray was horrible. I also wanted to do them early because I read that there is more you can do to help them when they are still young. 🙂 He was also bunny hopping but, I guess it’s common in puppies!

The hips look good! You can get her redone at 24 months for OFA evaluation, but they should pass no problem.
