Diseases

The following are the anatomical systems and diseases that the OFA is presently tracking and reporting. Click on the Info Icon to learn more.

Some health evaluations are performed during physical examinations by your family veterinarian, a board-certified specialist, or submitted by radiograph to OFA for evaluation by our nationwide team of veterinary radiologists. Blood and tissue samples are submitted to various testing laboratories. As more genetic tests are validated for specific diseases in breeds, we accept those testing results also.
