Hip Dysplasia What is it?
Canine Hip Dysplasia (CHD) is an inherited trait involving multiple gene pairs, which results in a spectrum of radiographic conformations. CHD is a developmental disease. All dogs apparently are born with normal hips but in affected individuals the radiographic signs of CHD can become evident within several months to several years. Therefore, the accuracy of diagnosis increases with age to about 95% at 24 months of age.
