The owner of this dog had reason to take her young female of 7 months for x rays to rule out early HD as reason of the dogs pain. Vet took many x rays and this is the one of the best quality (really not that good technique). The vet could not come to a conclusion if the hips were normal or not and if they were the source of the dogs discomfort. She paid the bill but no disagnosis. She will seek out another vet this coming week and have to put the poor dog through the whole procedure again.

Anyone care to take a shot at the quality of the hips as per this radiogragh. 

Thanks for your time.

Although a little loose, how close to season is this bitch?

Hips look very good. The dog has probably pano, growing pains. What kind of vet doesn't see how good the hips look like??? Your friend should send the x-rays to OFA.

No problem with those hips

Exactly why could this vet not see that they are good? Find another vet.

Not the straightest xrays. but I'd be pleased to see those hips--very nice coverage of the sockets.

i see nothing, either, that could be causing pain.  if she were my dog, i would ask the vet to xray the spine--pretty young, but i would still check just to be sure there wasn't something out of the ordinary.  as suggested above, most likely pano.

I can see areas that look to be Pano in these x-rays.  the hips look fine.

Thanks very much for your replies. I know the young owner of this dog will appreciate your input.

I think it's just great to have a forum like this where the more experienced on a certain dog issue can be helpful to those who are novices. Thanks again to everyone for your sound opinions and advice.

Good to excellent for breed and age. She needs a new vet.
