Hip Clearance questions

1177 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Millie'sMom
I was wondering what all the different types of hip clearances were? I know there is OFA and PennHIP, but are there any other acceptable ones? I have seen BVA, OVC and FCI as well on k9data, but haven't heard of them elsewhere. Are these acceptable clearances? Also the only one I can find with a database is OFA, do any of the others have public databases? THANKS, Golden:)

For most litters born in the USA from American dogs, OFA is the gold standard. Pennhip is another one some breeders embrace. OVC is what used to be Canada's, and the others are from different countries abroad. In general, you want to be able to verify the clearance independently of what you are told.
