In order to be on the PDB only USA lab accepted is OFA. You will need to send the information into OFA if you use another USA lab.
OFA Testing for USA Bred Dogs was posted earlier. Other Countries that test through OFA are CKC Canadian Kennel Club and Imported dogs also need to be on the OFA site. Dog Comments also needs to be verified on OFA.

Members have asked Pedigree Admins about the use of other Laboratories on PDB
The Pedigree Admins need to be able to check for proof to be sure a dog has been tested. The OFA site is available to check this
information out for dogs. If you have a Prelim done on dogs it needs to be listed on the OFA site to be allowed on PDB.
We get messages from members stating that information on dogs on the PDB is incorrect so OFA is required for dog health tests. If these
other Labs make this available on their site so that Pedigree Admins can check dogs out, things can change.

I wish you the best of luck with your dog and hope that he does not have DM. Even if the DNA test shows him at risk he may live a long time without developing DM. I have had 4 German Shepherds with DM and my last dog diagnosed at age 9 lived for 3 years after diagnosis and was ambulatory until the end. My current soon to be 9 year old GSD was just diagnosed with DM. She is now going to Physical Therapy and receives laser treatments to her spine twice a week. Apparently a study done about 2 years ago showed some improvement in symptoms and longevity with this treatment so I'm hoping for the best.
