OFA frequently gets calls from people who want to get a DNA profile done on a dog for identification purposes, such as when clearing by parentage. Often people don’t understand that the DNA test kits OFA has available to test for genetic disease are not the same as the swabs that are done for identification.
Dear OFA, Can I resubmit x-rays for my dog if I’m not happy with the results of my first submission?
The answer is yes! The OFA will re-evaluate an animal’s radiographs as often as the owner likes. There is no “waiting period” before submitting new x-rays. However, the re-evaluation must be based on a new set of radiographs. The OFA will not re-evaluate radiographs that have already been evaluated.
