What does OFA mean?

OFA is an organization set up in the USA to maintain a registry of eye examinations performed on registered dogs. This allows people to see the health status of animals they may want to breed their dog with.

There are equivalent organizations around the world and you should consider these if you are planning on bringing a dog into Canada.

Australia - Australian Canine Eye Scheme
