Health Guarantee

 

Cindi and I love Labradors, and we firmly believe in only breeding Labs with good genetics. At Lone Star Labradors, our litters are a result of careful research and experience. We work really hard to make sure all our breedings are done in a way that assures high quality offspring. The dam and sire we breed have good or excellent pedigrees and a history of generating good litters. Both parents have certified hips through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, Inc. (OFA) with good or excellent ratings.

 

The OFA will only certify dogs that are 24 months of age, or more. Though it is impossible to say that any given dog will be free of genetic imperfections, we assure you through this guarantee that Lone Star Labradors will provide you with a Labrador with certifiable hips. In order for us to honor this guarantee, the following requirements must be met:

 

1.) Hip X-rays must be submitted to the OFA after 24 months of age and no later than 26 months.

2.) If a dog's hips do not pass certification, a copy of the report from the OFA must be sent to us for our records. Our Veterinarian will verify these records.
3.) The dog must NOT have been bred. This guarantee is considered void if the pet has been bred.
4.) After confirmation of denial from the OFA, the pet must be neutered or spayed.

5.) This guarantee only covers genetic hip disorders, and does not include hip damage due to injury or other imposed causes.

6.) This guarantee is offered to the original purchaser only, and is nontransferable.

 

If one of our dogs does not pass OFA certification, and we are satisfied the above requirements have been met, we will offer our buyer either a full refund, or the option to exchange for another pup of similar breeding. If the selling price of the replacement pup is higher than the original dog purchased, the buyer will assume responsibility for the difference. Lone Star Labradors reserves the right to retain ownership of the original dog. This guarantee does not include any additional expenses incurred by the buyer.

 

In the unlikely event a genetic hip disorder arises before a pup qualifies for OFA testing, screening X-rays must be made and evaluated by the OFA. All of the requirements mentioned above (excluding the minimum age requirement) must be satisfied in order for us to honor the following guarantee:

 

Lone Star Labradors will offer a full refund of the original purchase price, or the option to replace the pup with one of similar breeding. If the selling price of the replacement pup is higher than the original dog purchased, the buyer will assume responsibility for the difference. Lone Star Labradors will reimburse the owners for the cost of the screening X-rays. In addition, we will reimburse the costs incurred for neutering or spaying. Lone Star Labradors reserves the right to retain ownership of the original dog. No additional costs will be covered under this guarantee.

 

Please read the above information carefully. Cindi and I want you to feel good about your purchase of a Labrador pup from us. We want no problems as much, if not more than you. We appreciate your business and will work hard to keep it.

 

Thank you and enjoy your new pet.
