    New information in the video below regarding OFA method of Hip Dysplasia testing. Crazy but not surprising for those who understand how the test actually works. We were at the vet today and he said that vets can easily cheat on OFA Hip tests by choosing how they take the x-rays, in addition to the radiograph reading being a completely subjective matter on the OFA's side.

    "Up to 70% of dogs rated OFA Good or Excellent at 24 months old go on to develop hip dysplasia at some point in their lives." Let that sink in.

    Go for PennHip folks....
