Hip x-ray

I wanted to post this x-ray to get a few different perspectives. I've posted a few other threads about my year old pup who has been diagnosed with hip dysplasia. The vet had mentioned she is too young to show signs of HD.

How do these x-rays look to you?

Has she been in heat recently? I have heard of joint laxity around the time of a heat cycle. Otherwise I see very little wrong with those radiographs. If you want to be more certain I would go for a PENHIP rating but it will cost more. I CERTAINLY wouldn't get those hips replaced! There is nothing terribly wrong with the ball and socket. But your pups ligaments may be an issue we here can not see.
