On-line OFA Forms/Registration will be used for this clinic. You can use the new OFA Quick Clinic link to register : OFA CLINICS

Senior dogs will be charged an examination fee, but OFA submission is free. Details at www.offa.org
Note: Each examination takes approximately 5 minutes.
Eye drops to dilate the pupils and aid in examination must be administered 20 minutes prior to the exam.
Please arrive half an hour prior to your dog's eye appointment, to allow for check-in and eye drops. Late arrivals will be seen as the schedule allows, IF the schedule allows.
