Parents have been cleared by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) with passing scores for hip checks.
This refers to "Radiographic evaluation of phenotype with respect to hip dysplasia". Although this does NOT guarantee that their offspring will receive a clear hip check,
it does genetically help to prevent this debilitating condition.
Parents have been genetically tested for Hereditary Cataracts mutation and have been found NOT TO CARRY THE GENETIC DISORDER (N/N)! This mean that they can not pass
Cataracts on to their offspring. This goes much further that the traditional CERF. testing. The Cerf. test is only good for one year and must be done annually until the Aussie is 9 years
old before they are given a clear rating for cataracts. By this age they are more than likely not producing anymore. The HSF-4 testing N/N result, Clears the dog of all genetic mutation
for the collie eye. This is most common eye issue that can be a problem in the Australian Shepherd breed.
