The subject of this study was to detect the prevalence of hip dysplasia according to offi cial radiographic screening between 2001 and 2009. The overall number of dogs tested for HD was 5381, belonging to 137 breeds. In 2001 the number of dogs evaluated was 403, and in 2009 this number rose to 856, which is an increase of 212.40%. In 2001 the number of breeds evaluated was 48, and in 2007 this number rose to 79 breeds, which is an increase of 164.58%. In the overall sample there were 2125 (39.5…

Out of 85 dogs examined, more than half (N=48; 56,5%) were free from canine hip dysplasia, so the study presents 85 X-ray images of the hip from different breeds of dogs.
Evaluation of Radiographic Coxofemoral Measurements in Boerboel Dogs
The coxofemoral parameters used for the detection of hip dysplasia in humans with Norberg angles in Boerboel dogs were compared and the CEA does not have advantage over NA for radiographic screening of dogs with hip Dysplasia.

A profound chondroprotective effect was demonstrated following 6 weeks of supplementation with EM (CTX-II) and significantly reduced joint pain and improved joint function rapidly (CBPI 1 week) and demonstrated a lasting improvement in joint pain (VCSA 6 weeks) leading to an improved quality of life ( CBPI 6 weeks).


Prevalence of hip dysplasia according to official radiographic screening, among 31 breeds of dogs in France.
When comparing the 1993-1999 with the 2000-2006 period in 15 breeds, a significant decrease in HD prevalence was detected in Berger Picard, Bernese Mountain dog, Briard, Gordon Setter, White Swiss Sheepdog and Rottweiler.
Prevalence of canine hip dysplasia in a veterinary teaching hospital population.
Dgenerative joint disease (DJD) was the most common radiographic manifestation of HD and there appeared to be a threshold at 12 months of age after which the presence of DJD was the primary diagnostic criteria.

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.

The collected data strongly indicate that improvements in the HD status in the various breeds can be reached by selection against specific disorders of the hip joints in these breeds.
Hip dysplasia in dogs
The diagnostic evaluation of radiographs has been essential for any successful combat against hip dysplasia, and the system applied to German shepherd dogs in West Germany in the last 20 years has proved successful without imposing strict measures.
Retrospective cohort study of changes in hip joint phenotype of dogs in the United States.
Results suggest that there has been an improvement in the hip joint phenotype of dogs in the United States between the 1970s and early 1990s and that the improvement has been greater among male than among female dogs.
