My vet was concerned enough to recommend me to go see an orthopedic specialist.

She was concerned with the hips and the right elbow.

I would greatly appreciate any advice here.

My breeder has a 2 year health guarantee and i wonder if this warrants a discussion with the breeder.

Thank you very much.

I've never learned how to read elbow x-rays, but those hips are definitely NOT good! Both hip joints are part-way out of the sockets. :confused:

They are not wonderful....I have seen alot worse....they would probably go OFA Mild... should be reasonably OK with management - ie, moderate exercise, good supplements - Elbows....not really great at reading them...but the one does look "open"....that may need some intervention....sorry :"(

I’m curious whether your dog is symptomatic? I know a little about hips and almost nothing about elbows However, I will say that ou 10.5 mo old is scheduled for right hip total replacement on Tuesday. He was symptomatic by2-3 mos of age.
