Huh... haven't seen anything like that... its like the acetabulum isn't there.

I see bilateral femoral head osteotomies in this dogs future... will probably do great, look at that muscle!

Since the weather started getting cold, she's been having trouble getting up after laying down. Nothing bad enough to have made me think it would look like this, but a slight hesitation.

Sorry, sweet Mexico. Maybe she and Ruby can can commiserate down the road tho Ruby is asymptomatic at this time. Our vet said they can have horrible x-rays and still be asymptomatic AND that she has seen mild x-rays and the dog couldn't move.... Hopefully this can be reasonably managed for a looooong time!
