Aruff Ranch AKC Siberian Huskies

 

Here is a listing of all my Siberian Huskies that have had their hips evaluated by Pennhip. I have all that have been done listed here and links to their OFA pages as well. This list is maintained here because Pennhip does not have an online database. I use Pennhip because I believe them to be the "Gold Standard" in evaulating hips. They are more expensive but a cost which I believe to be well worth it.

1st to explain what these #'s are and what they mean.

OFA has its advantages and disadvantages. Advantages being that you get a grade (excellent, good, fair, etc.) and dogs do not get rated unless x-rays are done after 2 years of age. This is not to say that hips can't fall apart after 2 years. Disadvantages are that it is much more subjective, ratings on the same dog can change. There is also that option of keeping your dog awake which affects accuracy of the x-ray. 

PennHip on the other hand is a statistic. It tells you "how loose" the hips are (measured by a distraction index, DI), which are correlated with hip problems.
