Canine Hip Dysplasia Prone Breeds

OFA – Orthopedic Foundation for AnimalsCanine hip dysplasia has plagued many large breed dogs since the early 1900’s. Before the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, PennHIP and the AKC, there were very little regulations on breeding. Many purebred bloodlines in the 1960’s fell victim to hip dysplasia due to inbreeding. Additionally, there were no regulations for testing a dog's hips before breeding so dogs with genetically incorrect growth were bred time and time again. Fortunately, knowledge is spreading and breeders are complying with OFA hip standards.
