OFA good means that they have had the hips tested and graded by OFA, but as with anything, should always check it out for yourself at the OFA site.
As far as PRA, there is no DNA test for PRA, so saying PRA clear is only as good as the day they were examined by a board certified Ophth Vet. PRA is late onset in our breed like Fanconi… many times it will not show up till over 5 or up to as late as 10yrs. old....
Thank you this dog will be 7 in Nov but I do not know when the PRA test was done.
Thank you for telling me go look at OFA I knew that my brain in stuck in wrong gear this day.
Eye exams are only good for one year… so unless it is current, they can NOT claim PRA Clear.
The bitch "Emerald" has PRA in the pedigree, both top and bottom. Note in the pedigree on the sire side Ch Gala All-American, he had PRA at age 3. Note on the sire and bitch side, Ch Changa Gala Celabration, who is the sire of Ch Gala All-America... Also, note Ch Akuaba's Tornado, also know to have produced PRA. We suppect that PRA is caused by a recessive gene, but again we do not have a DNA test to know at this time.
The bitch Tinder has Ch Gala All-America also in the pedigree
And I know this for a fact about Ch Gala All-America because his was the sire of my Mickii.... so it is not just "hear say"
Here is Jaycee's sire's OFA page. On it you can see his dam has an OFA hip rating his sire does not. There are no CERF results listed so you can not verify that the test was done or what year(s) it was done.
Do you have any information on Itzyu Basenjis in VA? My mother and brother are adopting a "Golden Opportunity" dog from them next month.
Can't go wrong with a Basenji from Itzyu Basenjis…. my opinion is go for it..... and they will get a great "golden opportunity" dog from them!
