What Genetic diseases and/or conditions should my breed be screened for?
Working with the breed’s parent club, OFA lists the primary health screening tests that breeders should perform on their stock before breeding. This provides basic information for breeders to make more informed breeding decisions in order to reduce the incidence of inherited disease

Find a breed below, and click on it to see the diseases and/or conditions which are considered of high importance for screening in that particular breed.

What if my breed is not listed?
If your breed is not listed, it should not be interpreted that no health screening tests are appropriate or available. You may be able to find more information about issues of concern for that breed by doing a Google search for the parent breed club. If it is an AKC breed, you can find a link to the parent breed club by finding your breed listing under the “breeds” tab on the AKC website.
