Eye Examination

The Eye Evaluation for dogs, according to the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) standard, is a crucial examination aimed at assessing the overall health of a dog’s eyes. This evaluation involves a thorough examination by a board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist, who checks for various eye conditions and abnormalities, including cataracts, progressive retinal atrophy, and glaucoma. The goal is to identify any issues that could potentially affect a dog’s vision or overall well-being.

Regular eye evaluations are particularly important for certain breeds that are predisposed to specific eye conditions. By following the OFA’s standards for eye evaluations, breeders and owners can ensure that breeding dogs are free from hereditary eye diseases, reducing the risk of passing on such conditions to offspring. The results of these evaluations are recorded in the OFA database, providing valuable information for breeders, owners, and veterinarians when making breeding and health care decisions.

DOGG!T champions these principles to ensure the health and well-being of dogs, promoting responsible breeding practices and early detection of thyroid conditions. All breeding dogs on our platform have provided health clearances that have passed the DOGG!T standard.
