German Shepherd Dog > Hip?elbow opinions? (8 replies)

|I just got my boys hips/elbows ofa today. He is 24 months. I wanted some opinions on how they will rate? I did ofa prelim at different vet and I got Fair. To me it looks like the right leg wasnt pulled down far enough to straighten the hip? Which makes the socket a little off?|
Sorry about the quality! Its a cellphone photo I couldnt figure out how to save the picture from the dvd! :(

|Elbow is perfect, yes, the heads are a bit worn,but are perfectly fitted..he shouldn't have any problems,regardless of the readings conclusions|

|Fair? Really,? I don't see that on this xray. My best guess - OFA good hips, maybe excellent. I think those flat spots are where the ligaments attach. Would like to be able to see the knees to be sure. Was he sedated?|
I don't know much about elbows, but they look OK to me. Good luck.

|Elbow is normal, hips look very nice. Blitzen is correct, the flattened portion is where the ligament attaches; the femoral heads are quite congruent in this dog; would even look better if the positioning were optimal :-). Good luck with your dog.|

position of hips is really bad, still look very, very good...

|Thanks everyone. This cell picture is a bit crappy! The knees are in the original sent to ofa. I'm just not able to figure out how to save th X-ray from the cd I was given. I'm feeling quite computer challenged! Lol Regardless, to me the right leg seemed as if it wasn't quite pulled and twisted in enough. Hopefully I get a good at :) he was given a mild sedation but I took him home right after the X-rays.|
