That sounds good so far but the real story will be at two. I have a friend who has a Shiloh that had textbook perfect elbpws and hips at age one prelims and by age two had grade 2 CDH in one hip, osteoarthritis and elbow dysplasia. It was a shock for all of us but it did teach us the reason for waiting to stud a Shiloh until the xrays are done at 2 years old.

Actually you can do preliminary OFA films at any age before 24 months.

Final OFA numbers cannot be obtained until 24 months of age on hips and elbows.

From http://www.offa.org/hipprelim.html

Quote
FA policy on Releasing Preliminary Evaluations to the Public Domain.

Frequently, breeders want early knowledge of the hip status on puppies in a given litter. Preliminary hip evaluations may be as valuable to the owner or breeder as the final OFA evaluation. This allows early selection of dogs for use as show/performance/breeding prospects and dogs best suited for pet homes.

The OFA accepts preliminary consultation radiographs on puppies as young as 4 months of age for evaluation of hip conformation. If the dog is found to be dysplastic at an early age, the economic loss from the cost of training, handling, showing and so forth can be minimized and the emotional loss reduced. These preliminary radiographs are read by the OFA veterinary radiologists and are not sent to outside radiologists. The same hip grades are given to preliminary cases.

A recent publication* compared the reliability of the preliminary evaluation hip grade phenotype with the 2 year old evaluation in dogs and there was 100% reliability for a preliminary grade of excellent being normal at 2 years of age (excellent, good, or fair). There was 97.9% reliability for a preliminary grade of good being normal at 2 years of age, and 76.9% reliability for a preliminary grade of fair being normal at 2 years of age. Reliability of preliminary evaluations increased as age at the time of preliminary evaluation increased, regardless of whether dogs received a preliminary evaluation of normal hip conformation or HD. For normal hip conformations, the reliability was 89.6% at 3-6 months, 93.8% at 7-12 months, and 95.2% at 13-18 months. These results suggest that preliminary evaluations of hip joint status in dogs are generally reliable. However, dogs that receive a preliminary evaluation of fair or mild hip joint conformation should be reevaluated at an older age (24 months).

The OFA report reads "negative". Guess we'll see what the 2yr old tests show.

Carolyn

Hey, Carolyn, I found this page at the OFA's website http://www.offa.org , and it has images of all the OFA certificates. The Prelim form sure DOES say "negative for elbow dysplasia". You'll see that the one you will get at 24 mos will say Normal.

We will dance the happy dance here for you, getting a good prelim report always qualifies as a great day!

:D
