|I'm new here and I can't figure out how to attach a picture. Heck, I don't even know if the computer will tell me if someone responded! Ha! I just had my girl's XRays done and just curious to your opinions and the wait to hear back from OFA will be HARD!! LOL|

|In the upper left corner you will see a section called Tutorials. That will give you step by step instructions.|

|Sorry, I'm afraid she's not going to get an OFA number. My best guess is moderate HD. Sockets are shallow and there is a fair amount of remodeling going on which indicates an unstable hip. She's not going to be a breeding prospect, but she will still be a good companion. How old is she? What did your vet think? The xray could be alot better, but it's diagnostic. The remodeling is easy to see so in this case a better xray won't make a significant difference. Let us know what OFA says.|

|Left side of our screen, very shallow socket with remodeling already in progress; our right side of the screen (probably left hip) somewhat better depth of socket with some flattening already in progress; does this bitch jump? |
I would predict probably moderate HD. So sorry and I would NOT use this bitch for breeding. Best of luck Nan

|I was hoping for atleast "fair" but in any case I have 3 people saying Moderate HD.|
Do you think it's harmful to her to be working in sport, she is just 2.
Thank you for your opinions and am hoping they will keep coming.

|Bad positioning. Was this done under sedation? Even with the bad positioning, I'm thinking OFA fair, maybe borderline at the worst. Not seeing mild HD like the others are saying.|
The right hip (left side of x-ray) is the one that's going to hurt, but with some better positioning, it may pass. The left hip looks fine, but not great.
Are you planning on breeding? I don't think this dog should show any signs of pain with these hips for a very long time if ever. JMHO.

|Yes, under Sedation but a first for both myself and the vet....I've heard that alot even from private messages that the positioning is "off", I'm just wondering if it's that "off" to make a difference? You have given me some hope....I'm not a "breeder" but I want nothing but the best for my Girl....and I appreciate your vote of some score! :)|
She is the Best Girl.
Keep the opinions coming people, I'm not afraid to hear bad things, just looking for a consensus....and appreciate them all.
Thank you so much!

|best wishes to you and your dog bello. The shallow socket on left screen is pretty obvious and I doubt better positioning will help much in evaluation.|
As far as training, etc., I would go ahead with whatever plans you had originally. Let the dog decide. It may never be an issue.
