OBJECTIVE To identify housing- and exercise-related risk factors associated with the development of hip dysplasia (HD) as determined by radiographic evaluation in Newfoundlands, Labrador Retrievers, Leonbergers, and Irish Wolfhounds in Norway. ANIMALS 501 client-owned dogs from 103 litters. PROCEDURES Dogs were assessed from birth until official radiographic screening for HD at 12 (Labrador Retriever [n = 133] and Irish Wolfhound [63]) or 18 (Newfoundland [125] and Leonberger [180]) months…

Canine hip dysplasia screening: Comparison of early evaluation to final grading in 231 dogs with Fédération Cynologique Internationale A and B

The results show that even in normal and near-normal hips, the parameters significantly differed in the early evaluation, and cutoff values should be set for different breeds in the prediction of the FCI grade during early evaluation for a better breeding selection regarding canine hip dysplasia.

The Demographics of Canine Hip Dysplasia in the United States and Canada

The demographics of CHD are more similar to the later onset DDH group; Comparative studies of both disorders should lead to a better understanding of both CHD and DDH.

Prevalence of Canine Hip Dysplasia in Switzerland Between 1995 and 2016—A Retrospective Study in 5 Common Large Breeds

Canine hip dysplasia (CHD) is a genetic disease, modulated by epigenetic and environmental factors. To decrease the prevalence of CHD, the hip joints of many pure breed dogs are radiographed to

Risk Factors for Canine Osteoarthritis and Its Predisposing Arthropathies: A Systematic Review

This paper aimed to systematically collate, review and critically evaluate the published literature on risk factors for canine osteoarthritis and its predisposing conditions such as developmental joint dysplasias, cruciate ligament degeneration, and patellar luxation, in the first comprehensive systematic review and evaluation of the literature reporting risk factors.

Epidemiological investigation into canine osteoarthritis and its associated conditions, and the associated pain related behaviours in the UK dog population

A systematic review and meta-analysis on the risk factors that contribute to OA and its predisposing conditions showed OA is largely a genetic disorder exacerbated through lifestyle and affects thousands of individuals and can have an incredibly long duration.

It’s complex : studies on the genetics of canine hip dysplasia

These studies revealed multiple new loci, a novel regulatory variant for a gene that is imperative to normal joint development and validated numerous loci that have been associated with the disorder and highlighted that mild hip dysplasia and the more severe disease forms may be induced by partially different genetic factors.

Epidemiological study of Labrador Retrievers

Data regarding the lifestyle, morphology and health of Labrador Retrievers up to four years of age and aspects of the Dogslife exercise questionnaire were found to be correlated to accelerometer readings indicative of sedentary, light and moderate to vigorous exercise.

Study on canine hip dysplasia and its diagnosis by imaging and molecular genetics techniques

The present paper is a bibliographical research on canine hip dysplasia using imaging and molecular genetics techniques, finding out the latest methods of genetically and radiologically diagnosis of canine hip Dysplasia and the best alternatives of treatment for this disease.

Patellar luxation - a genetic study

Four breeds were selected from the original 14, upon which heritability estimations were made, and several environmental factors involved in the variation of patellar luxation were found, namely breed of the dog, sex of theDog, age at examination and examining veterinarian.

Hip dysplasia — understanding the disease

The relative influence of genetics and the environment (with emphasis on management of the young puppy and body condition score in the adult) is discussed in this first of a series of articles on canine hip dysplasia.



Incidence, risk factors, and heritability estimates of hind limb lameness caused by hip dysplasia in a birth cohort of boxers.

Registration of Boxers that develop cCHD may provide a strategy for disease prevention, and sire EBVs provide useful information for breeding selection decisions.

Estimation of genetic population variables for six radiographic criteria of hip dysplasia in a colony of Labrador Retrievers.

Canine hip dysplasia is heritable to a moderate degree and signs of subluxation revealed the highest heritability estimates.

Diet, exercise, and weight as risk factors in hip dysplasia and elbow arthrosis in Labrador Retrievers.

Evaluating the effects of risk factors for HD and EA in a defined population of Labradors found that playing with other dogs might also be a risk factor for osteochondrosis dissecans in dogs.

Prevalence and inheritance of and selection for hip dysplasia in seven breeds of dogs in Sweden and benefit: cost analysis of a screening and control program.

Documented effects of age suggest that all dogs should be screened at the same age, rather than screening a few dogs at an older, more revealing age, in screening and control programs based on an open registry with access to family records, decreasing prevalence of hip dysplasia can be expected, and related to selection of breeding stock.

Retrospective Analysis for Genetic Improvement of Hip Joints of Cohort Labrador Retrievers in the United States: 1970–2007

It is proposed that selection based on breeding values will result in more rapid genetic improvement than breeding based on phenotypic selection alone.

Controlling canine hip dysplasia in Finland.

Estimates of prevalence of hip dysplasia in Golden Retrievers and Rottweilers and the influence of bias on published prevalence figures.

Prevalence of CHD in Golden Retrievers and Rottweilers may be much higher than previously reported in the United States and substantial bias in the OFA database causes lower estimates of prevalence.

Update of a retrospective cohort study of changes in hip joint phenotype of dogs evaluated by the OFA in the United States, 1989-2003.

Results support the contention that there have been improvements in hip joint phenotype classifications in dogs in the United States since the previous study (1989-1992), through increases in the proportion of dogs receiving excellent and good classifications.

Genetic variation and genetic trends in hip and elbow dysplasia in Swedish Rottweiler and Bernese Mountain Dog.

Based on the results, a statistical model for routine prediction of breeding values for HD and ED in Swedish dogs was suggested and indicated a genetic improvement in both traits.
