Having attended the 'PennHIP' course, I have now received accreditation.
We are one of the few practices in the UK to be able to offer this superior technique for screening dogs for hip dysplasia prior to breeding or as a diagnostic aid.
This research-based hip-screening procedure has proven to be the most accurate and precise method to measure hip laxity. It can identify (as early as 16 weeks) dogs that are susceptible to developing hip dysplasia.
This offers breeders the opportunity to make early decisions on breeding stock, and allows you to advise your clients on lifestyle adjustments and preventative strategies to minimise the pain and progression of the disease.
