Sending xrays to OFA

Hello all-- new member here! I was wondering if anyone would be willing to guess as to what these xrays would come back rated? 5 year old, large healthy male. Thanks in advance 😀

I learned years ago just how "subjective" x-rays really can be...depends on the doctors giving the certification....years ago I had a male and female OFA certified---male came back "fair"--female was "good"---my vet actually thought my male looked as good or better than my female ??


To me (just a pet owner)....I think your x-rays look pretty good to me... the head of the femur is formed well and fits into the hip socket nice/deep and appears to be tight

Thank you for responding!
I'm just a nurse, not a radiologist lol
But I was initially happy about how they looked. I've read/seen many posts here that come back from with worse ratings then vet taking xrays says

I was able to search back 3 generations on sire side and all were good or excellent. Just nervous as I have seen so many thinking they were going to get a better rating (per vet taking xrays) then actually comes back!

Depending on evaluators, I’d say these would go fair. The left hip shows a bit of remodeling on the femoral head and the coverage is a little shallow.

Train the dog in front of you.
