I have read most of the post that are about HD and I am wondering what a swaying gait is? Cosmo (15 mo ) had ex-rays done at 6 mo and the vet said his left hip was about 30% out of the socket. Maggie (15 mo) had ex-rays done also her hips weren't perfect but no where near as bad as Cosmo's. I am just wondering what a swaying gait looks like. Maggie has a deffinate wiggle to her walk, but Cosmo has more of a normal gait I guess. We are going to the vet on the 13th and hopefully he can give us more answers to my many questions on HD. Do any of you know if bad hips are diagnosed at 6 mo, if their hips might not be that bad when fully grown?
