GENERAL HEALTH WARRANTY
You will receive a vet healthy puppy report including shot record with your new puppy & a three (3) year health warranty, from date of birth, of no HD, PRA, VonWilabrands, Elbow, Thyroid, & Patella disorders.
The puppy must be taken to a licensed veterinarian within forty eight (48) hours of
purchase. If the Buyer fails to do so, then the Health Warranty is void. If puppy is deemed to be unhealthy or unsound in any way that would impair puppy's quality of life or shorten puppy's life
span the puppy will be replaced with another puppy of comparable value (WL reserves the right to postpone the replacement of a puppy for any reason). Seller has sole discretion to select replacement
puppy. If Buyer chooses to keep and treat the puppy WL will pay directly to the attending veterinarian costs for treatment of the puppy up to one half of the purchase price of the puppy, less
shipping, at the time of treatment. How does this occur? WL requires you to contact us before any treatment is started. In some situations we will just contact your veterinarian with payment. If
there is a question as to what procedure is required or diagnosis WL requires time for our veterinarian to contact your veterinarian and discuss the issue. As they are the experts, they will work
together to determine step by step the course of action and we will follow their advice and pay for the procedures recommended up to the price dictated by this warranty.
If the buyer wishes to return the puppy due to the puppy being unhealthy or unsound the puppy must be returned within seventy-two (72) hours of purchase at the Buyer's expense. The puppy must be accompanied by all paperwork supplied by WL at the time of sale, and a written statement from the licensed veterinarian clearly stating defect or illness. Sick puppies may not be returned to WL's home! It is the responsibility of the Buyer to contact WL to arrange another place to meet. This is to prevent healthy puppies/dogs from becoming ill. WL would never knowingly sell a sick puppy and the Buyer agrees that WL could not have been aware of any illness or defect unable to be detected by a licensed veterinarian.
If a puppy is found to have a health problem at its initial veterinarian visit that is NOT considered an emergency and the Buyer opts to immediately treat this puppy without contacting WL first WL is not responsible for any expenses incurred or for the death of the puppy.
This hip warranty applies only to those puppies bred by Wonderland Labradoodles and only
to the original Buyer if full price was paid for puppy. Seller does hereby warranty this puppy to have acceptable hip joint conformation as determined by the OFA. OFA is a standard as which to
determine extent of hip dysplasia. If this puppy's hips are rejected for OFA certification (OFA results that are considered rejections are: Mild, Moderate or Severe CHD) between two (2) years of age
and the day he/she turns three (3) years of age, WL offers payment up to one half of the purchase price of the puppy less shipping and spay/neuter directly to the attending veterinarian for treatment
of the condition or surgery for the condition. WL requires you to contact us. In some situations we will just contact your veterinarian with payment. If there is a question as to what procedure is
required WL requires time for our veterinarian to contact your veterinarian and discuss the issue. As they are the experts, they will work together to determine step by step the course of action and
we will follow their advice and pay for the procedures recommended up to the price dictated by this warranty. If no treatment or surgery is required no monies will be owed to the veterinarian or
Seller is bound by this warranty if and only if the following conditions are met:
1. OFA x-rays must document anesthesia was used for the diagnosis.
2. Seller must be notified of OFA rejection within thirty (30) days of its postmark.
3. OFA rejection and a written statement from a licensed veterinarian who took the x-rays must accompany the request.
4. Original puppy must not ever have been hit by a vehicle or suffered any other physical
trauma capable of causing lameness of any type, for any duration. Any such trauma will render this warranty null and void. Any condition of obesity or malnourishment for any duration will render this warranty null and void.
GENETIC HEALTH WARRANTY
This warranty applies only to puppies bred by Wonderland Labradoodles and only to the original Buyer of the puppy if full price was paid for said puppy. Seller does hereby warranty this puppy to be free of any verifiable inherited conditions that are life altering. If this puppy dies or is severely crippled from a documented inherited condition, prior to three (3) years of age, WL will pay directly to the attending veterinarian up to one half of the purchase price of the dog less the cost of spay/neuter and shipping for the treatment of the inherited condition.
Seller is bound by this warranty if and only if the following conditions are met.
Seller must be notified within thirty (30) days of diagnosis of condition or death of puppy.
Request must be accompanied by a necropsy report if the puppy is deceased, and absolute, verifiable diagnosis of the genetic condition in either case, including but not limited to, a statement from a licensed veterinarian stating the serious impairment/disease is present; and that, in the professional opinion of the vet, the impairment/disease is genetic in nature, without any reasonable possibility of environmental causation. and copies of relevant lab reports or DNA tests. (It is the responsibility of the Buyer to document a genetic disorder.) Seller reserves the right to verify the diagnosis with an independent veterinary evaluation (at the Seller’s expense) and Buyer agrees to make the dog available for Seller’s independent evaluation. If a third opinion is required, each party will share expenses of a neutral specialist in the medical field for the impairment/disease in question. The decision of the third veterinarian shall be binding on the parties.
*All claims under the Genetic Health Warranty must be approved by Seller BEFORE any treatment is provided unless such treatment is necessary to immediately relieve suffering.

Slight under bites and slight BNC (base narrow canines) are common in Australian Labradoodles. A puppy is not deemed unhealthy or unsound due to an under bite or BNC. A juvenile under bite or juvenile BNC is a minor issue that should correct itself when the adult teeth come in.
An umbilical hernia occasionally occurs in a puppy. A puppy is not deemed unhealthy or unsound due to a hernia. The repair of said hernia is minor and should be done at time of spay/neuter.
A puppy is not deemed unhealthy or unsound due to a slight heart murmur. A juvenile heart murmur should correct itself as the puppy matures.
