Puppies sold by BritishLabradors.com are guaranteed up to 30 months of age to pass their OFA hip exam and elbow exam (score fair, good or excellent) and be free of genetic disorders including the eye disorder Progrssive Retinal Atrophy (PRA). 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 notify the other owners in your puppy’s litter and 3) you will receive a credit in the amount of your purchase price 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 to check for genetic problems before 30 months of age. These tests include preliminary or OFA hip and elbow exam, eye certification and available DNA testing for genetic abnormalities. It is advisable to have preliminary x-rays done for hips and elbows before 12 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 (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 is genetically free of these problems.
NOTE: BritishLabradors.com will not pay for any veterinary work in any instance without prior consultation and approval.
