First thing is the right elbow view is not OFA acceptable (even the left elbow show be flexed more), I think. I don't see any problems there, but I don't think you can tell by that view. I'd be concerned if they couldn't get more flex than that.

The left elbow I see a lot of problems so it definitely is elbow dysplasia. What is going on there exactly, you probably need to have a specialist take a look at it. Somebody who isn't going to push you into surgery but who will give you an honest response on what they see and give you alternatives or management plans for right now.

My concern is if there's fragments or chips in the elbow (OCD), it won't get better with age. It could be like stones in your shoe and will cause limping from time to time and chronic inflammation.

Are you in the US?
