Elbow scheme

The term elbow dysplasia can be used to describe a number of specific elbow abnormalities which affect different sites in the joint.

Please read the Elbow Dysplasia Scheme procedure notes (42 KB PDF) to find out how to submit to the scheme.


Practices can now submit digital DICOM images on CD or DVD for grading under the BVA/KC Elbow Dysplasia Scheme. 

Once a certificate for elbow dysplasia grading has been issued the dog cannot be resubmitted for grading under the Scheme.
