Please read x-rays from today

|Thank you very much...in advance!! Holy crap...I am a FREAKING BASKET CASE. I think it takes weeks before I will hear from OFA. I am praying so hard everything looks ok. |

|Oh, crap...that is a lot of views without comments. That must be bad. Oh, no.|

is it possible to crop the photos and show close-ups?

|I'm sorry..I don't know how. It's a miracle I could save the images from the disk thing at all. I am really stressed out. |
To top it off, I filled out the stuff for the WDA "a" stamp and there were like 2 separate things that were all in German! I have no freaking clue how to read German. I wish they ahd provided a transalation page. So. if anyone knows the word for bitch/female please let me know. I don't know if I checked off the right box.
Lastly, all the vet did was digital x-rays so I need to, apparently, covert them to films for the SV. Has anyone ever done this before?

|from what i can see the hips / elbows look pretty good.|

|Really? Oh, thank God. I hope everyone agrees with you.....I am going too, officially, be a train wreck until I hear from OFA and the SV through WDA. OMG....I never thought the waiting would be so brutal and it hasn't even been 5 hours yet. Lord, help me.|

|Smiley I was just on this site and saw this.... compare it with yours, and I'd say relax, things are looking good....|
by Smiley on 25 May 2012 - 20:18
|Beetree..Holy poop...I don't know what the heck I am looking at. I can't see the difference between the two?? |

|Here you go, cropped and resized.|

|Thanks, Peter. Are you sure?|
Thanks Fast for the enlarged image.....
I just don't understand what to look for. Just don't know what I am looking at.
But, on a positive note, she passed her OFA Cardiac today. *sigh*

First off, take a deep breath, notice how the dysplastic example, the one on the right, how the leftside ball part of the joint is not seated in the socket? Now, look how both of yours are....and how they are similar to the good example?
I think Blitzen might be traveling today, she'd know for sure. And of course Molly seems to know her stuff...
Usually they like to see knees, but even I, with limited experience am thinking there is a good a sense of uniformity in what I'm looking at.

|Beetree..deep breathe? IMPOSSIBLE!!!! I feel like puking as I don't know what I would do if the results come back negative.|
I figured you all on the forum would know as you guys are so experienced......I guess if I knew she would fail I could mentally and emotionally try to prepare myself.
I went back and looked at pics and I kind of see what you are saying...sort of. Sorry. I just am clueless about what I am looking at. One of the balls looks ok to me but the other clearly doesn't. Maybe they are both bad and I just can't see it. I am trying!

|you can convert to films through Xray express in texas for A stamp.|
by Smiley on 25 May 2012 - 20:44
|trixx....yes, I saw that on the WDA form. Have you ever done it? Also, do you know the german word for female/bitch? I don't know if I checked teh right box. Thanks again for your help!|

|the hips are fitted nice and tight into the joint and there are no changes, the right side is a tiny bit lose but should not mean much as it still very tight. me looking at the xray -right side-|

| We all know how you feel..|
ALL of us were in your SHOES many years ago....so take a deep breath...WHY did your vet not show you?
I am a non vet person so do not get upset..Vets TAKE YOUR MONEY and why do they not tell you what to look for..?
Unbelievable...I am so lucky to have three great vets who can tell me if a spec on any exray means or does not mean...
WheW>..so glad I am retired.......lol
You just believe the ones here who know .....just be thankful for our DB...
IS your vet sending the xrays or YOU>>>

|YR..nope. didn't show me a thing. In fact, nothing is even labeled left or right. They are sending them in to OFA. They said I couldn't because they are digital. I have to send them to WDA/SV myself as I need to convert them to films.....apparently.|
