    DefaultCanadian Breeders - OVC for hips and elbows?

    I know of OFA for hips and elbows but is OVC hips and elbows a legitimate test?

    I found a website of a breeder in my parent's hometown and they state (for one particular dog):
    Hips & Elbows OVC Normal, Eyes ACVO Clear, Optigen Normal/Clear

    OVC seems to mean Ontario Veterinary College. Would that be "as good" as OFA?

    HI Tanya, i,m a canadian breeder and yes OVC is our VET COLLEGE that certifies our Hips and elbows. the rating system here is completed by one radiologist not three like OFA, however, comparing it to OFA standards, it could be considered Good, or excellent for hips , however some people who have OFA ELBOWS AND NOT PASS have sent them to OVC and then have Passed, why i do not know, but We have OVC first then sent to OFA and they have come back Excellent.Our Scout who is OFA excellent.For the eyes yes Avco is one way of certifieing eyes.hope this helps.

    Great! thanks for the info (both of you!).

    I've gotten too used to hearing about the US standards...guess if and when I'm ready to see a breeder I'll have to remember the CANADIAN terms
