Cash's OFA Certifications

Cash received his OFA certifications today for his hips and his elbows.

Elbows: NORMAL

An OFA hip rating of Excellent is extremely rare. Of all Labrador retriever applications submitted to the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals), less than 1 out of 5 are rated Excellent. This does not take into account the millions of retrievers that are not x-rayed and the ones who are x-rayed but are not submitted because the hips are obviously dysplastic. In other words, the labs out there with excellent hips are in a very small minority. If you are looking for a labrador retriever stud dog, make sure his hips and elbows are OFA certified.
