Enjoyed the company of 8 beautiful Australian Shephard puppies today, who all received their CERF eye certification from Dr Esson!
Are you interested in a CERF examination for your pet? OFA Eye Certification exams (previously “CERF” exams) are screening examinations performed by board certified veterinary ophthalmologists in order to identify changes within the eye(s) suggesting the presence of one or more of these diseases. Genetic diseases are those that are passed on from parent to offspring through genes that carry the codes for each specific trait. Many of the diseases and disorders that affect the eyes are associated with specific genetic factors and multiple eye diseases which affect dogs are known to exhibit evidence of a genetic or heritable cause. Certification is valid for 12 months from the date of the eye exam. Annual re-examination is recommended.
To schedule an OFA examination for one or more pets, please call the reception at 949-404-4100.
