I am thinking of buying a Black Lab pup and would like to know some basic advice on what health checks should be carried out. Also is the onus on the breeder to do some of the checks before I buy or is it me who has to get them done?
Would it also be possible to tell me what the checks mean, Ive heard of a couple, hip score and eyes, but what do the score numbers mean? Ive also heard labs should be checked for fitting too.
Finally would it be possible to give me the normal prices I would expect to pay for the tests.
