A note about Dysplasia in Dogs from the OFA:
”No one can predict when or even if a dysplastic dog will start showing clinical signs of lameness due to pain. There are multiple environmental factors
such as caloric intake, level of exercise, and weather that can affect the severity of clinical
signs and phenotypic expression (radiographic changes). There is no rhyme or reason to the severity of radiographic changes correlated with the
clinical findings. There are a number of dysplastic dogs with severe arthritis that run, jump, and play as if nothing is wrong and some dogs with barely
any arthritic radiographic changes that are severely lame.”
