My boy Alta-Tollhaus Gavin had his hips and elbows xrayed, his elbows were normal and his hips were EXCELLENT!! He is going to Germany
so unfortunately he will only get an A-Normal, but he would get an excellent rating with OFA!! :)

The OFA won't give you a hip rating until your dog is 24 months. You can get prelims done before that, but you won't get an official OFA rating until 24 months.

Man are those hips beautiful! i should have taken a picture but was in such a big hurry to get them in the mail I didn't think about it.

He is too young to get a permanent number from OFA but as they are now they would get an OFA excellent. Based on Dr. Mostosky's opinion ( my husband) and a board certified DVM radiologist.

Congratulations Lorie!!! Gavin is an awesome dog.

The A-Stamp is done after 1 year. Gavin needs his A-Stamp for his Korung. After he turns two he will be x-rayed again for his permanent OFA numbers.
