Don't have any xrays to add to this thread but I thought it would be a good spot to add this video on 'The Importance of Precise Positioning for OFA radiographs'. Had a great discussion on this at training the past Sunday.

Hi all

New to this board, but i do think this thread was a great idea!

I just got my baby's scans in, didn't realize i had to send them off somewhere else to get a rating, and i was eagerly waiting on a result.

What are some thoughts?

I have attached 3 images.

Cheers

I posted a video earlier that talks about the importance of proper positioning. Take a look at that or maybe even show it to your vet. Here's an article about this which shows at the top right a picture of 2 x-rays, taken 2 months apart of the same dog. One bad position, one good. Take a look at that picture. It reminds me of your x-ray only bad on the opposite side. http://www.takuaussies.com/hips.htm

Thanks

I will get onto the vet who did them, if they don't redo it for free i am certainly not going to pay again.

If i just kept these, could i at least be at ease that she is not extremely bad ?

Even crooked, it looks like the one our left might be a touch further out of the socket? They are nice and smooth though, looks like no remodeling.

I don't understand the elbows though, they look odd?

Remodeling happens when the joint isn't quite right and there is "wear" on the joint, causing curved parts to flatten, bone spurs, jagged edges, etc. No remodeling is good!

The elbow, the "globby" thing. Is that just something on the table or the xray? An elbow callous? I have no idea what that is.

I should say, I have very limited knowledge about reading xrays. Vinne, for example, would have seen more joint xrays with her number of dogs than I have.

I do not think she is extremely bad at all. I think there may be a mild lack of coverage of the ball of the hip on one side, but the extent is difficult to say because of the positioning. A straighter xray may show no problem.

I like giving a joint supplement in general, and I would use a supplement in this dog. Of course if the dog is young, these hips may still change I think?
