Jessica, my older female was diagnosed with mild subluxation on one side, and failed her OFA. The minute I saw the x-ray, I knew it likely wasn't going to pass.

It has never stopped her from doing anything I wanted to do with her, including the A-frame and jump for IPO. She's 11 now and has never had a lame day in her life!

If you're planning to breed I would resubmit. If not, I wouldn't worry about it. Had a male that was mild in the right hip. Trialed him to multiple Schutzhund 3, worked him until he was 8. Never showed any lameness. Keep her at proper weight and active. Inactivity will make things worse. Be sensible.

If she's not showing any lameness, I would recommend continuing what you are doing (if that is agility, go for it!) My girl hasn't had her prelims done yet since she was diagnosed with SAS and the vet is uncomfortable sedating her for the xrays. I will have them done when she's being spayed. They did some crude xrays while she was awake and just recommended some Dasequin supplements for one of her hips that seems less than perfect. She has shown no lameness and I don't intend to breed her defect.


Were these prelims?


I know people that have had females come up borderline on prelims but come back OFA Good at the 2 year mark. I think it really depends on who interprets the x-rays. If you don't plan to breed, I wouldn't worry. I'd resubmit if you did plan to breed. Those 2 weeks before her cycle could have impacted the rating, but again, I wouldn't' worry too much unless you were planning to breed.

yes prelims she is 19 months. I will be having them redone just for peace of mind. She has never shown any sign of lameness in that leg, except for the time she injured it running into a 2 inch diameter tree in her attempt to port round it lol

Not for breeding, my daughter wants to get involved with agility dock diving and fast cats, we just didn't want to put her through it if she has bad hips. She will still be getting her daily walks, she drives me nuts if she doesn't get them, I am just recovering from a sprained ankle so she hasn't been getting as much exercise as she is used to it has been a long couple of weeks lol

" we just didn't want to put her through it if she has bad hips."



She doesn't have bad hips so you are OK on this...


For other folks reading this --- If she did have bad hips, if the hips don't bother the dog, "put her through it" if she likes it.

I have heard of dogs that didn't pass OFA when the prelims were done. Then they were done again at 2, and were borderline. When the dog was re-xrayed later in its life (forget the reason why!) OFA said the hips were now good!

So, don't despair! Things can change as the dog grows and matures.

My breeder said the same thing. She recommends I go to the vet she uses , says he is very good. She had hers done at her regular vet and it came back mild (prelims) had this other vet redo them and she came back fair. When she showed me the x-rays this other vet did I was amazed with how much clearer they looked than mine. The only problem is this vet is a 3 hour 15 minute drive from where I live, which is totally doable but will be rough with 4 year old child.
