Roosters Brand of Aussies breeding program offers our buyers a 1 year health Warranty. We call it a warranty instead of a guarantee because we fully believe that both parties have to do their part in insuring the health and longevity of our dogs.
Genetics – We do our part by testing each of our breeding females as well as make sure the studs used are tested for the following and are clear or paired with clear;
• DM – Degeneration Myelopathy
• HC – Hereditary Cataracts
• CEA – Collie Eye
• PRA – Progressive Retinal Atrophy
• PRCD – Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration
• CMR – Canine Multi-focal retinopathy
• HCM – Hereditary Cobalamin malabsorption
• NCL – Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis
• Mdr1 – Multiple drug reaction

Things like hip, eye and heart health, as well as other health issues are influenced by outside factors, which once pup is out of our hands, we can’t control. Such as diet, supplements, exercise, etc. So our warranty has standards which need to be met by you. ___________

How your pup is raised will greatly determine hip and elbow health. We will assure they have the best genetic start as well as the best environmental start. It is crucial that young pups are brought up on proper surfaces to develop well. It is also crucial that new pet owners do their part.
