PennHIP Evaluations for Dogs

HomeOur Focus on WellnessPennHIP Certification

Healing With Heart Veterinary Care offers the PennHIP method of evaluating dogs for the development of osteoarthritis secondary to a condition called Canine Hip Dysplasia. Dr. Deavers is certified to perform PennHIP evaluations. She is among a limited number of veterinarian in this region that are certified to perform this service.

The PennHIP method of evaluation is considered the to be the most accurate tool to predict the development of arthritis. It involves taking multiple images of a dog’s hips in different positions while under anesthesia to determine if they are at risk for developing this debilitating condition. This is the gold standard for developing a good breeding program, and it is also used to help select diets and proper supplements to aid in our pet population.

We are happy we can provide this service to our clients.

Online Reviews

I know Dr Deavers from her work at another veterinary office. I've had pets my whole life and I have never known a more dedicated, caring veterinarian! My sweet, beloved Cairn Terrier, Asta, was diabetic and Dr Deavers was his vet; she helped me keep him as healthy as possible, for as long as possible. I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to her for caring so much about my little fellow. Dr Deavers is an amazing person, a wonderful vet, and I am absolutely thrilled that she is going to be at this clinic!
