Abstract

Selective breeding of unaffected animals is the only effective means of controlling the frequency and severity of canine hip dysplasia. Genetic control of canine hip dysplasia requires (1) an accurate diagnostic method keyed to a phenotype with optimal heritability, (2) an organized screening program based on the diagnostic phenotype, (3) a centralized database containing essential phenotypic and pedigree information, and (4) trust and cooperation between breeders and the veterinarians who conduct the diagnostic procedure.
