PennHIP Veterinarian Services

PennHIP is a research-based hip-screening procedure that has been proven as a very accurate and precise method to measure hip laxity. This offers breeders the opportunity to make early decisions on whether to breed certain dogs and allows veterinarians to advise pet owners on lifestyle adjustments and preventative strategies to minimize the pain and progression of hip dysplasia. Hip dysplasia is the most commonly inherited orthopedic disease and leads to hip arthritis which causes pain, stiffness and diminishing quality of life.

Dr. Bauer is a certified PennHIP veterinarian who can test your dog’s susceptibility to hip dysplasia. Please call for more information or visit www.pennhip.org.
