Follow-up Submissions for Hips and Elbows

Malinois Champion of HealthIn an effort to generate further aggregate long term follow-up data, the OFA is offering a resubmission service.

Similar to the OFA’s preliminary or consultation process, Follow-Up Studies will only be read once, by the OFA’s board-certified in house veterinary radiologist and owners will be sent a report with the findings. The results from these “Follow-Up Studies” will not alter or risk the earlier official OFA consensus reading on which the animal may have received a hip/elbow number. The fee for this service is $15.00. To submit, simply follow the normal OFA hip submission process, and clearly write the words ‘FOLLOW-UP STUDY’ at the top of the application.

The primary benefits are twofold: the OFA will generate additional information on changes in hip status over the lifetime of the animal, and owners will benefit from the same information without risking the earlier rating assigned by the OFA.
