About a week ago, I took my 10 month old Lab to the vet for a follow-up x-ray of his hips after in March. When my dog was sedated, he was very drowsy but his eyes were still open and he still needed a few people to hold him down in position for the x ray.
After having looked at a bunch of x-rays on the web, I believe that my dog's x ray is bad because of his positioning. The photo was taken with the x ray in front of my laptop screen and might be a LITTLE off.
As a result of the x ray, the vet diagnosed him with CHD (class 1-2, dont know what that means though). She said that his left hip was dislocated and he would be prone to arthritis on his right. She also said that he could be in a lot of pain.
Could someone please confirm this (and say how you know in as much detail as possible)? I am really worried and don't know how I feel about the fact that a dog could always be in pain...
