Patellar Luxation Report Sample
In order to assist buyers and breeders in researching and verifying health history, the OFA is providing sample report forms. Any form presented as an "OFA Report" which is not on an official OFA form should be held as suspect.
The Patellar Luxation Database is for dogs 12 months and over. Examinations
performed on dogs less than 12 months will be treated as Consultations
and no OFA breed numbers will be assigned.
