Eye Care For Animals – Genetic Eye Certification (OFA/CERF)
It is recommended to give breeding and service dogs certified eye screening exams to ensure they are free from hereditary eye problems. The OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) is the organization that manages the certification process after exams and forms are completed by one of our board-certified vet ophthalmologists.
The eye certification test does not include diagnostic tests and is not intended to monitor or diagnose known eye disease. You will receive a completed OFA eye certification form, which should be mailed to OFA in order to receive certifications at their discretion. Eye certification tests should be renewed annually.
On the day of your appointment with our vet eye specialist, please bring your dog’s information with you in order to complete OFA forms, including: registration number, owner’s name and contact information, dog’s registered name, date of birth, sex, breed, and if applicable permanent ID# (ie; microchip or tattoo).
