NOTE: To show trends, I'm adding information to this page, but leaving prior information also.
This allows you to see what the statistics were like in the past, and what they are currently at.

The following information came from the OFA web site. No information was given for the Laekenois.
FROM JANUARY 1974 THROUGH DECEMBER 1996
|RANKING/BREED||# EVALUATIONS||% EXCELLENT||% DYSPLASTIC|
|83. Belgian Malinois||695||15.0||6.0|
|94. Belgian Tervuren||2581||19.9||4.3|
|101. Belgian Sheepdog||2079||30.6||2.8|
From Jan 1974 - Jan 1998 (added info is from Jan '97 - Jan '98)
|89. Belgian Malinois||926||15.3||6.2|
|102. Belgian Tervuren||2996||20.7||3.9|
|105. Belgian Sheepdog||2350||30.6||3.0|
NOTE that the % dysplastic went UP in
the Malinois between '96 and '98 :-(
On the brighter side though, so did the % of excellents and more Mal's are being checked
so at least there is progress in that area.
As of Dec 31, 1996 individuals representing 155 breeds have been evaluated by OFA and elbow dysplasia has been found in 70 of these breeds.
Breeds in which at least 75 individuals have been evaluated as of December 31, 1996 are listed in a table on the OFA page and are classified by percent dysplastic and grade of elbow dysplasia. The higher the grade number, the worse the dysplasia is.
There has NOT been at least 75 Belgian Malinois x-rayed for elbow dysplasia as of Dec 31, 1996. However, there are Malinois who have been diagnosed as have elbow dysplasia.
As of Dec 31, 1997 individuals representing 164 breeds have been evaluated by OFA and elbow dysplasia has been found in 78 of these breeds.
Breeds in which at least 75 individuals have been evaluated as of December 31, 1997 are listed in the adjoining table and are classified by percent dysplastic and grade of elbow dysplasia.
I'm working on updating this section still.
The following information came from CERF. I only received the information for the Belgian Malinois. I am
only putting summary information on this page, for detailed breakdowns containing the age
of the dogs involved, the statistics for specific problems, etc., contact CERF and obtain
a CERF membership.
