If you are planning to breed from your dog we can perform hip and elbow scoring to assess the risk of these diseases being inherited by the puppies.  A low hip score from the parents is an indication the puppy is more likely to have normal hip and elbow conformation. However, there are other factors affecting hip conformation apart from hip scores so it must be remembered there is no guarantee the puppy will be free from hip or elbow dysplasia.
