Changes to the Eye Registries Effective November 1st

Eye exam forms used to be submitted to CERF (the Canine Eye Registration Foundation) in order to obtain official certification. Please note that this has changed, effective November 1st 2012.

The American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) and Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) have created a new joint Eye Certification Registry (ECR). Your veterinary ophthalmologist should have the revised forms the next time you go and get an eye exam done. To obtain certification, the examination form is sent to OFA instead of CERF. If the eyes are clear, then an ECR number is issued.

The revised FCRSC Code of Ethics will reflect this change and for the purposes of litter advertising in Flatout in the next year, we will accept OFA eye certifications and CERF certifications (or as before, a copy of the eye examination form). As was the case previously, eye certifications continue to be valid for ONE YEAR from the date of the exam. A valid certification is required for breeding as per our Code of Ethics.
