The OFA Databases


The OFA databases are core to the organization’s objective of establishing control programs to lower the incidence of inherited disease.  Responsible breeders have an inherent responsibility to breed healthy dogs.  The OFA databases serve all breeds of dogs and cats, and provide breeders a means to respond to the challenge of improving the genetic health of their breed through better breeding practices.  The testing methodology and the criteria for evaluating the test results for each database were independently established by veterinary scientists from their respective specialty areas, and the standards used are generally accepted throughout the world.  The following databases have been developed and are maintained by the OFA today:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Patellar Luxation
  • Autoimmune Thyroiditis
  • Congenital Heart Disease
  • Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease
  • Sebaceous Adenitis
  • Congenital Deafness
  • Shoulder OCD
  • Several DNA Based Databases such as von Willebrand’s Disease and Progressive Retinal Atrophy
