OFA Radiographs

OFA radiographs are strongly recommended before breeding your male or female dog - these radiographs can detect hip dysplasia, a condition causing poor conformation of hips in certain dogs. 

Important information:

  • OFA radiographs cannot be evaluated in dogs under two years of age.
  • Preliminary evaluations are available for dogs over 4 months and under 24 months.
  • OFA radiographs should not be taken within one month of the female’s heat cycle.
  • Your pet must be either microchipped or tattooed for identification for OFA certification -microchipping can be done at OAH the day the radiographs are taken.
  • OFA radiographs require anesthesia to get acceptable radiographs - please plan accordingly.
  • OFA radiographs take approximately six weeks to be evaluated, so please plan ahead.
  • You will also have the option to radiograph the elbows, as recommended by OFA.
