Puppies sold by BritishLabradors.com are guaranteed for a lifetime to be free of the following genetic disorders: Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA), Labrador Myopathy (ARMD/PTPLA ,CNM), Narcolepsy, Inherited Retinal Dysplasia (RD), Oculoskeletal Dysplasia (OSD) and Exercise Induced Collapse EIC). Puppies sold by BritishLabradors.com are guaranteed up to 30 months of age to be free of other genetic disorders not listed above and pass their OFA Hip Exam and OFA Elbow Exam (score of fair, good or excellent).
If your dog experiences a genetic disorder, please call us immediately so that 1) we can make a decision if this genetic combination of sire and dam should not be repeated, 2) we can recommend qualified veterinarians to you, 3) we can notify littermate owners, and 4) you will receive a credit in the amount of purchase price of your dog on a future puppy provided 1) we are notified on or before the dog reaches 30 months of age, 2) upon proof of neutering or spaying and 3) DNA certification of your pet if we request it.
It is the owner's responsibility and we encourage owners to check for genetic problems, such as hip dysplasia, at an early age as orthopedic corrections are best done at a very early age before arthritis develops. A Pennhip Exam or preliminary hip x-ray can be done in the dog’s first year of age. OFA Hip and Elbow exams are done at 24 months of age.
To qualify for the guarantee, the dog must be in possession of its original owner, must not exhibit related disorders caused by trauma or accident and must not have been bred before 2 years of age. BritishLabradors.com will not require that the dog be returned for the guarantee to be effective. You may redeem your puppy credit at any time in the future by placing your name on the puppy reservation waiting list. Purchasers of BritishLabradors.com puppies can be assured that the kennel has extremely low incidences of genetic abnormalities among puppies it sells, a result of the care taken when choosing animals for breeding and as a result of the DNA genetic testing for abnormalities performed on our breeding sires and dams. These tests include ARMD/PTPLA,CNM (Labrador Myopathy), PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), RD (Inherited Retinal Dysplasia) OSD (OculoSkeletal Dysplasia), EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse), and Narcolepsy. Since all of our breeding stock is homozygous (meaning non-affected, non-carrier) for these abnormalities, we can guarantee that the dog you purchase from us will never suffer from one of these problems.
NOTE: BritishLabradors.com will not pay for any veterinary work in any instance without prior consultation and approval.
