Hi can you please look at the picture and tell me you opinion
If you send the x-ray I can discuss positioning but cannot make a diagnosis, or comment on the extent of hip dysplasia, as this is a separate service.
What exactly has happened; your vet took x-rays which were not accepted for hip scoring?
Can you see the xray
Unfortunately not, it is just a blank message.
You can send it to***@******.*** if this is easier.
Thankyou iv sent it though email
Thank you, ***** ***** just received it and am now typing my reply
Working in a general practice (where we take x-rays to assess for arthritis, fractures, dislocations, signs of hip dysplasia etc), to me, this is x-ray is useful and I would be happy with it personally.
However, for specific hip score assessment, they can be extremely specific with the positioning that they need, so it is possible they may have issue with the slight rotation. If this is the case and they have requested the x-rays be taken again, we have little option but to do so.
I hope this answers your question.
Hi iv not sent it for scoring, the breeder i bought my dog from said that the xray my dog was not straight iv now spoken to the vets (as could not when i picked her up then had work ) has told me they couldnt get ut any straighter as her left hip is showing displacement, would this be your conclusion as well
