The non-profit Orthopaedic Foundation for Animals was established in 1966. The purpose was the control and eventual elimination of musculoskeletal disease with the control of hip dysplasia in dogs as the immediate objective.
Today the OFA website is one of our most valuable resources – dogs are entered with pedigree info such as reg#, sire, dam, date of birth and color as well as health reports. Please be aware that those data are given by the dog-owners, so misspellings and even errors can happen. Right above the dog’s name there is a link to the vertical pedigree, that shows the health info of dog’s ancestors and their full siblings. The results of the advanced list can be downloaded as csv file.
