Welcome to PennHIP
Our mission is to develop and apply evidence-based technology to direct appropriate breeding strategies aimed at reducing in frequency and severity the osteoarthritis of canine hip dysplasia.
PennHIP incorporates a new method for evaluating the integrity of the canine hip. It is accurate in puppies as young as 16 weeks of age. It has great potential to lower the frequency of CHD when used as a selection criterion.
New PennHIP Training Course!
The next PennHIP training course will be held on February 15, 2014 in Las Vegas; the day prior to the WVC conference.
