How so? Why do you ask?

Do you mean that if you take a sampling of Vets, you'd get differing opinions on the same set of X-Rays?

Get a .31 and .24 at one place. Then the next week at a different place get a .23 and .21. That’s a lot of difference.

I was under the impression PennHip produced the numbers and the Vet just reported the results?

If you had the X rays taken twice, the difference is understandable and it really isn't all that much.

That is a pretty big difference.

I have to ask though......why did you do the second test a week later when the first test looked great?

Because they was so far apart from one side to the other.
