I had her prelims done without sedation. The first shot was ok, but they realized they forgot to put film in and after that it was a bit of a struggle as she didn't like being restrained, although she wasn't horrible about it.
I think if I need to do more than one shot she'll have to be sedated, I don't want them yanking her around or taking more shots than necessary.
I thought I read that OFA requires the dog to be sedated for the xrays, or is that something I'm imagining?

|WVGSD||Depending upon the dog, sedation is not always required for x-rays. I have had several dogs done without any sedation and have not had an issue.|

I was afraid of that! Ok, thanks.
I did have prelims done at 10 months, I was just hoping to not have to sedate her more than is absolutely necessary.

|Okin||My dog just had these done so I was reading up on it. You can do preliminary ratings as early as 4 months, but to get a certified one they need to be 2 years.|

OFA hip x-rays, when can I do them?
I know the ideal age is 24 months.
I have another concern and wanted to have my dog x-rayed for that and I was thinking about having her hips done at the same time. But she's a couple of weeks shy of 20 months of age.
Will OFA accept hip x-rays at this time, or do I have to wait on those?
