I thought that I would start a new thread for anyone else who may go thru this with their pet. I was completely unaware that there even was a group of disorders called elbow dysplasia (ED) until I started to do research last week about what could cause a clicking/crunching sound in a dog's elbow. There are 3 disorders covered by the title of ED: Ununited Anconeal Process (UAP), Fragmented Coronoid Process (FCP) and Osteochrondrosis (OCD). All 3 lead to Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD) or more commonly called arthritis. Right now I only have a preliminary diagnosis of bilateral UAP and DJD. The x-rays have been sent to a radiologist since FCP and OCD are harder to diagnose. The red arrows point to the UAP locations. The roughness of the bones is the DJD. I'm going to contact the specialist in Calgary tomorrow to find out where we go from here since UAP is only solved by surgery.
