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 Breed Laxity Update!
The breed laxity statistics have been generated for August 2013. The statistics are available to all certified PennHIP veterinarians.
