The BVOA Canine Hip Registry was established in 2009 and is hosted by University of Liverpool Veterinary School. The Registry aims to provide an evidence-base for the veterinary orthopaedic community and for the pet-owning public, regarding the success rates and complication rates of canine total hip replacement. We will investigate variables such as breed, age and prosthesis model in terms of how they influence success and complication rates. In this way, we hope we can improve the success rates and reduce the complications associated with canine hip replacement.

Any veterinary surgeon performing canine total hip replacement can sign up to submit data to the register. We provide a legally-binding contract between the University of Liverpool and each surgeon such that we will never use "clinic" or "surgeon" as variables in the analysis of the data. In this way, we remove any concerns regarding commercial interests or professional reputation. Veterinary surgeons can sign up online using the form on this page. We will then send a link to allow registration on the secure website.
