PennHip testing is used in dogs to measure the amount of hip laxity and diagnose hip dysplasia. All dogs can benefit from PennHip radiography, which can accurately measure the risk of a dog developing osteoarthritis (OA) from canine hip dysplasia.

Our veterinarians are specifically trained and certified to perform the PennHip procedure on your dog.

We have performed Pennhip radiography for:

  1. The early intervention of hip dysplasia;
  2. Working dogs to determine their suitability to their line of work;
  3. Breeding programs to allow owners to determine which dogs are suitable for breeding.

PennHip radiography can be performed in puppies as young as 16 weeks of age.
