When they get the results? YOU should be the one to get the results. What is the receptionist talking about?Not worried per say, though with the high incidence of HD in GSD's it was always in the back of my mind, especially since Zelda loves to jump. So I didn't want to really do a lot of agility or running with her until I was sure it was safe for her.
I am kind of upset with the vet and really considering finding a new one. They didn't even talk to me when I picked her up, (they went to lunch) the receptionist just brought her out and told me things to watch for after being under anesthesia. I had to call and ask for a copy of the x-rays, and asked about what the vet thought about them. I just got she never said anything to me so I would assume there is nothing concerning, we will call when we get the results in from OFA.
Honestly I don't know, they said they haven't done OFA's in a long time so maybe she is just assuming they will get something from OFA. Zelda's breeder told me I should get the results in 2-3 weeks.When they get the results? YOU should be the one to get the results. What is the receptionist talking about?
You can check the OFA site as well. It might be listed before you get the results back.Honestly I don't know, they said they haven't done OFA's in a long time so maybe she is just assuming they will get something from OFA. Zelda's breeder told me I should get the results in 2-3 weeks.
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.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.
