We, as experienced breeders, are very concerned about genetic health consideration and have adequate background knowledge of our Labs going back several generations. We carefully research all of our breeding stock to make sure that prior lineages have been strong in hips. We offer a written guarantee against any genetic hip dysplasia or elbow dysplasia for the first 26 months, ONLY IF YOU KEEP YOUR PUPPY ON “NUVET VITAMINS” THE WHOLE 26 MONTHS. You need to use our breeder code so we have record of every purchase. We guarantee your puppy to be in sound health, exhibits no sign of contagious or infectious diseases, and shows no evidence of internal or external parasites, (excluding fleas/tics) or any communicable diseases. To the best of our knowledge there are no physical evidence of congenital or hereditary defects that exist as of date of purchase. Even though we have done research and cleared our Labs through OFA, the buyer understands that this is NOT an absolute guarantee against the genetic defect from occurring. We will provide you with information to help eliminate any problems as you raise your little one, as the right food, exercise, and the do’s and don’ts of raising a little puppy. Hip or Elbow dysplasia must be x-rayed no later than 26 months of age (2 years and 2 months old); and if your veterinarian suspects a problem, the X-ray must be verified by the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) as to the condition of the hips or elbows. All documentation and canine will need to be returned to COLORADO ASPEN LABS to be viewed by our veterinarian.
1st option…. If a health defect with the hips/elbows is determined to be genetic/hereditary, COLORADO ASPEN LABS will replace the dog with another puppy asap, (if deposits have been made against the next particular litter, the choice for the puppy being replaced will fall in line behind the deposits made at that point). If you paid a lesser amount than what the second puppies price is, the buyer will pay the difference for the second puppy and if any shipping charges are needed.
2nd option… If a health defect with the hips/elbows is determined to be genetic/hereditary, COLORADO ASPEN LABS will refund the original purchase price of the puppy, minus any shipping costs. WITH OPTION 1 AND 2 THE PUPPY WOULD NEED TO BE RETURNED TO COLORADO ASPEN LABS WITH ITS AKC PAPERWORK.
3rd option…. You keep the original puppy and COLORADO ASPEN LABS will refund you $500. All diagnostic and shipping expenses will be the buyers responsibility and once you choose on of these options, this releases COLORADO ASPEN LABS of any further guarantee with the original puppy. These warranties are dependent upon determination that the puppy has received adequate care, nutrition and that they were on NuVet Vitamins for the whole 26 months. Abuse, neglect, bad diet, over weight, trauma (i.e. jumping in the air for frisbees, going up and down apartment stairs, jumping in and out of vehicles), in any way that affects the development of well being of the puppy the guarantee is null and void.
THE FINAL DIAGNOSIS WILL BE DETERMINED BY OUR VETERINARIAN THE CONTRACT IS ONLY VALID WITH THE ORGINAL OWNER OF THE PUPPY AND IS NOT TRANSFERABLE!
