Stay informed of the latest progress in canine health research.
We need your support to fund research that helps dogs live longer, healthier lives.
A steadfast supporter of the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF), the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) has contributed nearly $150,000 to CHF in support of canine health. The AKC Canine Health Foundation and OFA are also co-sponsors of the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC).
The objectives of OFA include:
OFA has recognized that a variety of heritable diseases impact animal health. As scientific advancements enhanced the ability to diagnose heritable diseases, OFA has supported development of diagnostic criteria and databases for a number of genetic diseases in addition to hip dysplasia. OFA also supports studies on animal wellness through financial contributions to CHF. Through its support of such projects, OFA hopes to provide resources for the further understanding of, and ultimately prevention of genetic diseases.
