Hip Dysplasia

OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) Certification: We are able to radiograph your dog’s hips for hip dysplasia at 24 months of age.  We will send these radiographs to a Board Certified Radiologist for OFA certification.  Correct positioning of your dog is essential for proper radiographic evaluation, so a general anesthetic is sometimes required to make the procedure less stressful for him/her.

Dogs can be screened for hip dysplasia at an earlier age if desired, but cannot be certified until 24 months of age.
