Just got Cruz's hips x-rayed today and got a crash course on what good hips look like and what bad hips look like. Your pic was alittle too small to make out, but what I was told today by the vet is you want to look for how much of the hip pocket covers the ball. In Cruz's case, over 50% of the pocket is covering the ball. She told me thats very good. He is 8 months.
