First of all, I agree with Joe that AMC is pretty well equiped. But I beg to differ that AMC has the widest range of equipment in this country. I don't see they have anything Segar Pets & Veterinary Services does not have. Also there are others who are equally well equiped, if not better, like Yeoh's Veterinary, University Veterinary Hospital-UPM Serdang.

Secondly, the only one in this country who are board certified to score hip is Dr Heng in UPM. He has Master degree from Melbourne and Colorado, and Diplomate in Radiology. Senior is not equals to experience also does not equal to knowledge.
Thirdly, I agree with Joe that CHD is relatively common in large/giant breed dog. But those found in small/toy breed is not CHD. If I am not mistaken it is called LCPD (Legg Calve-Perthes Disease), due to dying femoral head. The condition in c-yee's dog probably different from both the condition mentioned.
C-yee, come from previous experience from my dog, and heard many stories from other people, I strongly suggest you to go to UPM for second opinion. If you ask the Dr in Tmn Segar, they will recommend you to go to UPM as well, because most of the vet, if not all, in Malaysia will acknowledge Dr Heng as the most qualified vet in our country to look at X-ray.
I am so sorry if my statement offended anyone, just to share some info and experience. No bad intention.
