Ok first off the dog is 10yrs. old and has had a rough and tumble life, but is still it the mix of it and still running tests. Titles, good blood lines, no evident health issues, through-out his life etc. A friend approaches him about breeding so Owner goes in to have his OFA (hip, elbows, eyes) and genetic tests.
Results come back Hips-good, Eyes-normal, genetic tests clear/clear. Now the kicker, Elbows (one normal the other with Grade 1 (mild dis); so dog is unable to get an OFA Elbow #. Opinions on breeding said dog? Family (sibling, mom, dad) all normal elbows, albeit done much earlier in life. Would the OFA be able to distinguish elbow dialysis vs. other bone-joint related issues that might be associated with age (arthritis, etc.).
