Default hip dyspasia

There are a couple of things that can affect the OFA score. From th
www.offa.org website:

Radiography of pregnant or estrus females should be avoided due to possible
increased joint laxity (subluxation) from hormonal variations. OFA
recommends radiographs be taken one month after weaning pups and one month
before or after a heat cycle. Physical inactivity because of illness,
weather, or the owner's management practices may also result in some degree
of joint laxity. The OFA recommends evaluation when the dog is in good
physical condition.

Some vets just aren't good at doing the initial X-rays. OFA will
re-evaluate a new set of X-rays if you desire.

You've got to stop it, PW. Your killing me. I haven't stopped laughing
since I read your last post:

That's HOWE COME we TRAIN dogs not to engage in indiscriminate
sex.


You gotta know that I am the only one who reads your insane babble.
Ever thought about changing your shtick?

Best regards, scott

By the way, have you got yourself a dog yet?

Hip Dyspalsia cane easily be cured by first addressing The Crucia joint
problems that cane also recur from improper surgery done on the dog.
When that is addressed then only is it safe to address the Hip problem.
As detailed in the Veterinary Hand Book For Dogs.

HP can be cured? I don't think so, but just in case I am wrong, please
elaborate.

HP = HD .. ya right if carnt be cured but could be read wrong .. i once had
a dog that was lazy doing obedience, especially the jumps ..so i thought
better get him xrayed .. the vet said his hips were so bad i wouldnt even
bother sending the film in .. but being a breeder and knowing that we need
all the results good or bad i did send them in .. well when i got the
results he had perfect hips .. so you carnt always believe everything the
vet tells you
