Health Guarantee and Policy
1345 Blustery Way
This guarantee consists of two sections. Each section outlines the items covered during the pups first 12 and 26 months of life. The number of months begins at the puppy’s birthday. There are no guarantees that apply after 26 months.
Guarantees made for eyes free of hereditary defects for the first 12 months.
A certified veterinary ophthalmologist must examine animals before it is 12 months old. The results of the exam sent to Scott Tallent. The ophthalmologist must state that the defect is hereditary and not caused by injury, or illness. Any hereditary defects will result in a complete refund of the puppy’s original purchase price to the owner.
Guarantees made for Hip dysplasia are good for the first 26 Months of age.
All reputable Labrador retriever breeders are trying to reduce the incidence of hip dysplasia in the breed. They are doing this by refusing to breed dogs that have radiographic evidence of hip dysplasia. Hips are not certified by the OFA until the dog is 24 months old. For this reason dogs younger than 24 months should not be bred.
Any animal purchased from Scott Tallent must be x-rayed by 26 months. Animals older than 26 months are no longer covered under this guarantee. The dog should be x-rayed between 24 and 26 months of age to be certified by OFA. Dogs may be x-rayed before 24 months of age as a preliminary evaluation.
The following applies to all parts of the guarantee.
