Health Guarantee

SoDak Labradors provides a 26 month hip and eye health guarantee.   The guarantee covers genetic problems described below that prevent the animal from passing certification by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) or the Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF). SoDak Labradors reserves the right to assume that you are purchasing this puppy for yourself. An ownership transfer of a puppy other than from SoDak Labradors to you voids this health guarantee.

If your puppy is diagnosed by OFA as having hip dysplasia (mild, moderate or severe), or diagnosed by a Diplomat of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) with retinal atrophy or retinal dysplasia, we will replace it with a puppy of comparable breeding.  For replacement, we require all documentation from OFA and/or CERF and a written statement from your veterinarian confirming that the dog has been spayed or neutered. The said dog must be returned to SoDak Labradors with AKC paperwork for puppy replacement.

The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) shall be the sole judge regarding hip dysplasia.  The Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF) shall be the sole judge regarding eye defects.

This guarantee applies only to hereditary defects and is valid only to the original purchaser of the dog.  Injury to the dog or breeding of the dog prior to clearance by both OFA and CERF shall void this guarantee.
