Part of responsible breeding is to be a steward for the health of the breed. Genetic diseases can have a devastating effect on a dog’s offspring, not to mention a breeder’s reputation. Modern DNA technology offers many genetic tests using DNA, but radiology (x-rays) as well as examinations by a veterinarian are still employed for many diseases.
Here at Idaho Veterinary Hospital we offer the following:
- OFA Hips & Elbows
- OFA Basic Cadiac
- OFA Dentition
- OFA Patellas

Generally, once a year, Idaho Veterinary Hospital hosts a ‘Breeder’s Weekend’ event that hosts a variety of specialists for completing testing such as Advanced Cardiac (Echocardiogram), BAER (hearing) and CAER (eyes) testing. This event is always announced on our Facebook and fills up very quickly.
