Why not google vets in woodbridge and see what you get? or ask friends and family?

You may want to have a quick peak at this link so you can get a feel for the board!

I really wish I knew the name of a vet for you, a real good vet will probably suggest you not breed the momma anymore, hip dysplaysia is at times a hereditary problem, my labX was tested for it by our animal hospital here, 5 other pups in her mixed litter also had it, the rescue had them all spayed before adoption. good luck finding a vet *S*

I think the op means one of her dogs came from a litter where two other pups have hip dysplasia .

Christine, maybe if you called your vet and asked what exactly they do to test for and confirm hip dysplasia. They can give you the details and price ahead of time and then you can call around and compare?

I dont personally know of a vet in Woodbridge or I would have mentioned one ...I also didnt want the OP to get any unwanted repsonses.

I like Lp's idea? that would give you a ball park on price and whats involved?

I gather though your looking for some personal experiences of a good vet right?

What breed is the pup. Based on your answer, I will see if there are rescues that have vet reference in this area.
