Health Guarantee

Smith Farms Labradors offers the following guarantee to the original buyer only.

labrador puppiesWe guarantee the puppy to be free of PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) for up to 25 months of age. If you suspect your puppy has PRA, it must be verified by a certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist with CERF.

We guarantee the puppy to be free of hip dysplasia and elbow dysplasia for up to 25 months of age. If your veterinarian suspects dysplasia, the x-ray showing this condition must be sent to the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) for evaluation. This x-ray must be done before 25 months of age.

If any of these conditions is verified, and the owner wants to keep the dog, we will refund half of the purchase price upon receiving a veterinarian’s letter confirming that the dog has been spayed or neutered. Otherwise, the affected dog may be returned, and the breeder (Smith Farms Labradors) has the option of either refunding the entire purchase price, or replacing the dog with a puppy of comparable breeding when available.  In any case, all veterinary, diagnostic, return, and replacement costs will be the owner’s responsibility.

These guarantees are dependent upon demonstration that the puppy has received adequate care and nutrition. Anything that affects the development or well-being of the puppy, such as obesity, abuse, neglect, trauma (i.e., jumping in the air for frisbees), or being used for breeding will void these guarantees.

Five-Year Extended Guarantee: Your puppy has been eating Life’s Abundance brand dog food. We will extend this health guarantee to five years of age if the owner buys and continuously feeds Life’s Abundance dog food via this link:

We offer this extra guarantee because we have found Life’s Abundance to be a significantly superior brand. The high quality and freshness of the ingredients produce a noticeable difference. You can feed less because there are no cheap fillers (or rancid oils, which can cause cancer) so there is less to clean up. It is not available in stores, but is shipped directly to your home on a regular basis.
We wish you and your puppy the best of health for many years to come.
