Hip scheme

The term hip dysplasia can be used to describe a number of developmental problems and other abnormalities involving the hip joint in dogs.

Please read the Hip Dysplasia Scheme procedure notes (39 KB PDF) for helpful instructions on using the scheme.


Practices can now submit digital DICOM images on CD or DVD to be scored under the BVA/KC Hip Dysplasia Scheme. 

Once a certificate of HD scoring has been issued the dog may not be resubmitted for scoring under the Scheme.
