Hip/Elbow Scoring

Many breeds of dogs are genetically predisposed to hip and elbow dysplasia.  In order to reduce susceptibility of these conditions, the CCC(Q) recommends certain breeds require hip/elbow scoring prior to breeding.  This includes full general anaesthetic, digital radiographs and scoring with Dr Lavelle.  A copy of the radiographs for your records can be supplied.

In 2000, the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) and the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC) established the Canine Hip and Elbow Dysplasia Scheme (CHEDS) to reduce hip and elbow disease in registered pure bred dogs.

If you would like PennHip Scoring, we can arrange this through North Coast Veterinary Specialists.
