    DefaultOFA/ Breeding question

    Is it unusual, or is it pretty common to use a stud dog that has an OFA rating of Fair? All other clearances were good on the dog I'm reading about (Elbow, Heart, Optigen, EIC, CERF) and this dog has a title of Multi. BISS CH. I am a novice, but it just seems like you wouldn't want to use a stud dog that has an OFA rating of anything besides good or excellent.

    Fair, good and excellent are all PASSING grades. If both parents have a good orthopedic history, I wouldn't hesitate to use a fair stud dog, and have with excellent results

    Agree with Nicole. If the dog is otherwise outstanding with good orthopedic history behind him in his pedigree as well as siblings and his previously sired progeny, why not? There are lots of reasons a dog might rate fair. It could be positioning during the xray, the particular panel of vets on rotation at the time the xrays were rated, or the dog might just really be 'fair'.

    Fair is passing. I have an OFA Excellent dog from a father that has Fair hips.
