CHED is the Canine Hip and Elbows Dysplasia scheme. You can read more about it here on the main ANKC web site.

Hip score statistics are automatically updated as new results are added by the radiologists on the panel. To see the latest statistics click here.

Dogs Australia members can login with their person number to view private results or view or download a PDF health certificate, for dogs they own.

Instructions for vets when taking x-rays for CHED can be found here.

Schedule of fees

On 1 January 2024, the fees for reading hip and/or elbows xrays under the Dogs Australia CHEDS will increase. This is the first rise in fees since ORCHID started in 2016 and the first increase in 12 years. Part of the fee increase is a levy introduced on all results in order to support the operation of ORCHID.
