PennHIP is a canine hip scoring program run by the University of Pennsylvania and is performed worldwide by certified veterinarians only.

The PennHIP technique utilises a multi-faceted radiographic technique to assess the quality of the canine hip and quantitatively measures the joint hip laxity. This method is the most accurate technique available to predict the onset of osteoarthritis.

The radiographs taken by certified veterinarians are sent to the PennHIP Analysis Center for evaluation. These results are conveyed to the owner and are also collated by the PennHIP centre.

Dr Neil Thies has been a certified veterinarian in the PennHIP technique for over 10 years. Willunga Veterinary Services regularly receive clients from all over South Australia for hip scoring.
