On Site at Dog Shows – Devoted to the Needs of the Dog Breeder & Handler

Breeder's Veterinary Services (BVS) brings high technology to the special needs of the show dog. Services include digital radiology for OFA hip, elbow and shoulder clearances. We do not use anesthesia or sedation, it takes only a few minutes and the owner or handler may be present for the entire procedure. The quality of digital imaging is unsurpassed. The images are sent electronically to OFA the same day they are taken so clearances are received earlier.

You may wish to have your dog certified in other countries in addition to or in place of the US. We can have images evaluated by services that certify in other countries as well. For example: FCI (Germany, France, Belgium, Norway, Netherlands), SV (Germany), BVA ( UK ) CHEDS(Australia). Click on service to open web pages from any listed country. Requisition forms must be downloaded from certifying agency website ( OFA, Penn Hip, FCI, BVA, CHEDS, SV),  completed, and provided to BVS for any countries requested.

Most clearances required of show and breeding animals can be performed at dog shows. There is no need to schedule additional appointments with your veterinarian for most of these procedures. OFA cardiac (auscultation only), Thyroid testing, Patellar luxation, DNA testing, as well as any requested blood testing can be easily performed right at the dog show.
