Terra's OFA Prelim X-Ray

Postby innocence621 » Tue Feb 24, 2009 8:04 pm

Terra went in yesterday for her OFA hips preliminary, she was a good girl and did not need sedation. She is one week away from 7 months old. I think they'll come back good, which makes me very happy! Now, the long wait for the results...

They look really nice. I'll bet she gets a good rating!

I'm no expert, but the balls look like they are set nicely in the socket. Can't wait to hear the results!

Yeah waiting sucks!!

I took x-rays of Judge's hips when he was 8 months old and was waiting to do OFA in August BUT I went and sent the ones I had in to the SV (GSD parent club in germany" for an "A" stamp!!! The german shepherd club certifies hips at 12 months of age with the SV. In GSD's that's preferable to OFA. Judge will have both certifications as does his dad.

Expert or not, I appreciate your opinion! It makes the wait a little easier!

Thanks, I'm waiting for papers back now. Arrgghhhh..you have to send in the ORIGINAL papers to have stamped. It sucks!

Did you have a regular vet do them or an orthopedic specialist? For OFA x-rays in August, I'm having an Ortho do them, there is too much room for error with a regular vet.

I had them done at a regular general practice. But, the vet that did them specializes in reproduction and after seeing Narnia's (my friend, apbtgurl) come back good I figured I'd trust him :) Otherwise I would of had to go to UF which would be more costly and they sedate. This is the only vet I know of in town that will try them not sedated. But I completely understand wanting to go to an ortho specialist, I've seen lots of crappy films from regular vets. I used to work in a specialty clinic, and man, I'd be embarrassed to send some of the ones I've seen.

Yeah, Judge has to be sedated for them to be able to roll him over. lol lol He's not a happy kinda dog when that happens. lol

I have a vet here that I love and has done tons of OFA x-rays but i still want the best opinion and shot I can get with him.

Good Luck and keep us updated!!

Called OFA today and they are processing both of them today so we may know something as early as the first part of the second week of March (but who is counting, right?). She said I could call her and check on the status. They were delayed a day because the OFA person who handles the digital x-rays was out sick yesterday.

The look good to me... younger dogs are harder to evaluate as their bones aren't "set" yet, and the growth plates are distracting. The coverage is good, can't wait to see what the score is!
