i probably wouldn't bother with bloodwork in a dog that young unless i were feeling especially rich.

Xrays done under sedation are going to be more accurate as the muscles will be relaxed. Even the most cooperative dog in the world is still going to be tense.

This. I wouldn't base OFA's off of a non-sedated dog. Being the one that restrains for rads, I can tell you that it's not easy taking one of the views that they need. Every dog struggles, no dog is relaxed.

Yeah, he did all three of mine Mira's were after we moved out of state...I scheduled her in "on my way" to our house to sign closing papers when we sold it. They did a nice job with all of them.

He was also right on with his eval of the rads for all three, so I'd say whatever he tells you is probably going to be right if that helps alleviate your tension while waiting for OFA results . He called Web's a good-normal, probably going good. Kim's a definite good. Mira's a good-excellent but probably going to go good. All three dogs came back...Good

X-rays taken! Elbows look great. He is mildly concerned about how the hips will come back because even though Payton was sedated they were having a hard time getting a shot he really liked. He's sending in two films and thinks they'll come back good. From one film it looks like part of the ball is flat on one side, from another film the ball looked perfectly round - the second film he said there's a tiny line on it that they might say is a Morgan's Line but he doesn't think it is (and after looking at some other x-rays online I don't think so either, but we aren't OFA experts so we shall see.) Otherwise hips look really great and he was pleased.

So I highly doubt we'll get an excellent rating, boooo! Oh well. I am trying not to freak out about this whole Morgan's Line thing because I doubt they're going to evaluate it that way but. well. The next few weeks need to go quickly.

Apparently he was not very... uh... well... he was on his back on the table and a dog started barking next door, so Payton is laying there, sedated, having his hips x-rayed, and trying to bark at the other dog. Payton.
He came barreling into the exam room when they were done like =D =D YAY NOW WHAT GAME ARE WE PLAYING. WTF? Auggie acted like he was drunk for almost an hour after his x-rays. *facepalm*

Welp, today I got the best birthday gift. Payton's OFA results were sitting in my mailbox when I went over to my house.

Elbows normal as expected, no signs of dysplasia.
Hips good - and no signs of dysplasia.


I didn't realize exactly how nervous I was over the results (and getting more anxious every day) until I opened them and started crying with relief.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOUR PUPPY HAS NO SIGNS OF DYSPLASIA
