Abstract

The angles of inclination and anteversion of the femoral head and neck were measured on 150 limbs of 75 dogs. These hip angles were compared with pathoanatomic and radiographic scores of hip dysplasia. There was a minimal difference between dysplastic and healthy dogs in the angles of inclination and anteversion. It was concluded that in this series of dogs, hip angles did not have a part in the development of hip dysplasia.
