Default Xraying hops?

Cohen is my performance dog. She has a vet appointment tomorrow. Should I ask my vet about getting her hips xrayed? To date I have no cause for concern. Think it's worth it to have a professional look at them? If so, what organisation should I have view the xrays? What's the procedure like for this kind of stuff?

How old is Cohen? If she's over two, then yes, personally, I would have x-rays taken and sent to OFA for grading. I had Auggie's done just for my own knowledge and peace of mind. My vet wants to put a dog under for the x-rays, but not all vets do, and for Payton's, I intend to travel somewhere to see a vet who WON'T put him under to do it.
