Thank you, we get it, and we won't let you down. Regarding hereditary hip dysplasia, you will need to do one of two things. Obtain a PennHip Evaluation from a certified PennHip Veterinarian and have all radiographs sent to the PennHip Analysis Center for evaluation. A score lower than good qualifies for replacement. Otherwise, obtain an OFA Evaluation Certification done at 18 months of age and based on X-rays evaluated by the OFA. An OFA rating lower than Fair qualifies for replacement. Simply put, with respect to hip dysplasia, only claims of severe and moderate hip dysplasia are covered under this contract and no dysplasia claims will be considered prior to 18 months of age. Regarding vision issues, your puppy's eyes should be checked by a certified Veterinarian Opthamologist. Finally, regarding heart issues, your puppy's heart should be checked by a certified Veterinarian Cardiologist.

Not covered under this Health Guarantee are Giardia, Coccidia and worms, as these are common parasites. Also, retained testicles are not covered, unless the dog was purchased with full registration as a stud male. Remember, testicles can take as long as a year to drop and will be removed when the dog is neutered.

I know much of this sounds scary, but in reality issues rarely arise; we have had exactly two thus far in 25 plus years of breeding goldens, and in both cases, solution
s were found that pleased everyone involved. We have had far more requests for additional dogs from owners' friends and family. So, relax, we've got you covered.
