PennHip Certification

PennHIP is a radiographic screening method for hip evaluation. This technique assesses the quality of the canine hip and quantitatively measures canine hip joint laxity. The PennHIP method is more accurate than the current standard in its ability to predict the onset of osteoarthritis (OA). Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease (DJD), is the hallmark of hip dysplasia (HD).
