PennHIP X-Rays are a specialized type of X-ray that is used to assess the health of a dog’s hip joints. The PennHIP technique is considered to be the most accurate way to measure hip joint laxity, and it is used by veterinary specialists around the world. These X-rays are typically performed on puppies at around 16 weeks of age, and they can be repeated every few years as your dog ages. PennHIP X-rays are generally performed by a trained veterinary technician, and the results are interpreted by a board-certified veterinary radiologist.
