The Results Are In

On July 24, 2017 I took Riggs to Harmony Pet Clinic where I work and had his OFA Hips and Elbows radiographed, I also had a PennHip evaluation done. If you missed the blog post you can read about it here. I sent in the radiographs to OFA and PennHip on Monday afternoon on the 24th. On July 27th I received the PennHip report. Once they get the submission form and the radiographs their turn around time is within 72 hours. OFA results were back 17 days later.

Here is Riggs PennHip report:

This test showed that Riggs left hip was a little lax than his right. He still scored in the 90% for the Chesapeakes, he was also a smige above average. The doctor who did the PennHip evaluation said from what she saw on the radiographs that were taken for submission she thought Riggs would get a good rating with OFA.

And the results of OFA:

OFA said that Riggs has Normal Elbows – no signs of dysplasia.

OFA said that Riggs has Good hips, so Dr. O’Brien was spot on.

I am happy with these results. Riggs OFA hip and elbows results can be accessed on the OFA website in their database, you can view them by clicking here. Soon his PennHip results will be available online.

    That’s wonderful. I have a Facebook group discussing how difficult it is to find great breeders and I always think of you but they are looking for Basset Hounds. LOL!
