I think the right hip looks good. It fits neatly, has lots of coverage. I think the left hip might not pass ofa. I don't think it is terrible, but I think it has a lot more play, less coverage, I think I am seeing some build up on the head, and I think that it is overall narrower than the other side.
this dog is a rescue I just got, 9 months old, otherwise good health, blood tests and fecal tests came back clean, etc etc. I don't care about OFA, I just want to know if a few years down the line I am going to need to think about surgery, etc. And yes, I know anything could happen, my GSDx rescue dog just passed from cancer a month ago, and I am being a bit of a helicopter owner right now. The vet said from these x-rays he has moderate HD in his left, but after looking at some x-rays on here, I didn't think it looked that bad? Yes, I am new to worrying about hips LOL
They look fine to me. Poor positioning could cause the one hip to look shallow.... so maybe "mild" on these xrays?
I would think proper positioning would only make things look better.... I could see a "good."
