The Blue Book, Ocular Disorders Presumed to be Inherited in Purebred Dogs 8th Edition PDF .The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA), Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF), other breed registry groups, breed clubs, and practicing veterinarians have requested that the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) provide a scientific advisory panel to furnish guidelines regarding ocular disorders of major concern to purebred dogs. The Genetics Committee of the ACVO was formed in response to these requests and is engaged in an ongoing effort to update information on ocular disorders proven or suspected to be hereditary in purebred dogs. The compendium of ocular disorders and breeding recommendations which follow are interim guidelines. They are reviewed regularly and revised whenever additional information becomes available.
