I just had the pennhip done on my 5.5 month old and it came back 40%. Now from what I understand this is pretty accurate after 4 months or am i wrong?
Her parents were 95+ and 90+% can i expect much change between 6 months and 2 years?

Thanks
Ben

I agree with SC-the percentages themselves don't mean a lot, as they will change over time. What were his DI measurements?

I do believe-and I can't find the reference-that PennHIP no longer uses the 4 months claim. My experience has shown me that it is very common for young Goldens to be very lax, or subluxed, and that this does not always correlate well with later hip results.
