We absolutely love Labradors and what we do, so at the end of the day, we want everyone to be educated on the choices they have to make as a potential new pet owner.
As a new future pet owner, you're ready to bring a new puppy home to be a part of your family, and you're probably SO excited! It's only natural! But before you purchase any puppy, make sure to do your homework on who and what stock you are buying from. Cheapest doesn't always mean the best deal. And there is a reason you pay for quality puppies from extensively health-tested parents.
"Puppies as young as 10 weeks old can be diagnosed with abnormal joint laxity accurately. This unfortunately common, but genetically preventable disease requires surgery even for puppies under 18 weeks of age." -Per American College of Veterinary Surgeries.
Puppies born from parents who have hip dysplasia , may quite possibly start off a long life of living in pain and not being able to function properly if left untreated. And as a new pet owner, this is not at all what you had expected your new venture to be like. Now, you may have to invest in special food for restricted diet plans, joint fluid modifiers, physical therapy, special joint supplements, anti-inflammatory medications and lots of Vet visits. In some cases, a need for a complete hip replacement. ($1,700-$4,500 according to Carecredit.com)
Although it is a never impossible , it is extremely less possible to happen GENETICALLY if you purchase a puppy from two health tested parents.
We hope that when you purchase a puppy from us, you are also buying a piece of mind knowing we breed to PREVENT the spread of common preventable genetic issues by doing extensive health testing on our Dam prior to breeding.
Long live the practice of breeding happy, and most importantly, healthy puppies!
