    Smile Good Feeling - OFA

    Just got back from the vets for OFA...it's a good feeling walking out with at least a preliminary diagnosis of Very Good for hips and normal for elbows and heart checks for my boy. Still have to wait 3 weeks for official OFA results, but it feels better knowing there's a pretty good chance of favorable results.

    I've been on the other end of the spectrum when my first dog (and now deceased) failed a CERF exam....not a good feeling at all.

    $285 for the whole smash.

    Finally got the final OFA results back today - All good!....Exactly 1 month after the exam to the day.
    That's a long time to sweat
    Got the cardiac results last week.

    If you're waiting for results, it appears they are a bit behind.
