* Litter Rates: Three or more members of the same litter, submitted together

1: Non-Passing Eye exam results submitted to the open database are processed at no charge.

2: Evaluation fees for dogs determined by the OFA to be affected will be refunded. If the dog has an existing hip dysplasia certification, a Legg-Calve-Perthes certification is at no charge upon the submission of the Legg-Calve-Perthes From Existing OFA HD Number form.

3: Equivocal and Affected dogs no charge. Resubmit studies no charge.

4: The OFA does not charge a fee to enter abnormal SA results (the fee is refunded to the owner), or to enter resubmitted results on previously tested clear or equivocal dogs. A number of owners have assumed that the OFA policy not to charge on resubmits applies to the laboratories as well. This is not the case. Please note, the laboratories/dermapathologists charge a fee every time they process a new sample.  Please consult the lab prior to submission for their current fees.

5: Three or more soft tissue applications submitted together on a single dog (example: Cardiac, Patella, and Eye applications on single dog submitted together) *Note – this discount does NOT apply to any applications requiring radiographic evaluations. 

Dalmatians Deafness Note: The OFA will continue to register BAER Hearing Test Results for whole Dalmatian litters at no charge until further notice. The fees are being underwritten through a generous grant from the Dalmatian Club of America Foundation.
