Hi All, I want to report only the facts about my dog.
In early 2011 I collected a beautiful male pup from Irishlabradors. Their facilities were impressive with many good looking dogs and a nice environment.
Approximately 4 months later Bailey was diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia.
He is likely to require a double hip transplant. I can provide xrays, vet notes etc. I also papers from Irishlabradors.net to prove this is where baily came from.
I suggest anyone considering buying a labrador pup speak to the Irish Labrador association.
I had assumed Bailey was an anomily, but subsequently I have met another dog from Baileys father who has elbow dysplasia.
If buying from them ask for:
Eye Test Certs
Hip scores for both parents
And finally if any dogs from her have ever had hip/elbow problems.
I also suggest you search for irishlabradors on this forum.
