PennHip Radiographs

What are PennHip Radiographs?

At Plantation Park Animal Hospital, we understand the importance of your pet’s mobility and comfort. Hip joint health is particularly crucial, especially in dogs, where conditions like hip dysplasia can impact their quality of life. To ensure the early detection and monitoring of such conditions, we offer a specialized diagnostic tool known as PennHip radiographs.

PennHip stands for the University of Pennsylvania Hip Improvement Program. It is a highly specialized radiographic procedure aimed at evaluating the structure and function of the hip joint in pets. This technique goes beyond standard hip radiographs and provides a more in-depth assessment of your pet’s hip health.
