Rainmaker Labs, LLC Hip/Eye/EIC/CNM Guarantee
Until 26 months of age, Rainmaker Labs, LLC guarantees your puppy will achieve an OFA hip rating of fair or
better. Hips must be x-rayed by a veterinarian according to OFA guidelines and the films submitted to the
OFA. A copy of the films and OFA report must be provided to Rainmaker Labs, LLC on or before the dog
reaches 26 months of age, to make a claim on this guarantee. For bitches, radiographs must not be taken
within 30 days before or after her heat cycle. Upon receipt of hip films and consultation with their own
veterinarian, Rainmaker Labs, LLC reserves the right to a second opinion of their choosing of the dog’s hips,
including another set of films, at the buyer’s expense. Please use an experienced, qualified veterinarian to do
your OFA films.
Your Rainmaker puppy's eyes are guaranteed to pass a CAER (formerly CERF) exam. Exam must be
performed by a certified veterinarian ophthalmologist according to CAER standards and proof thereof
supplied to Rainmaker Labs, LLC on or before the dog reaches 26 months of age. If dog is able to get a CAER
number, including with breeder options, eye guarantee is fulfilled. Rainmaker Labs, LLC, reserves the right to
a second opinion of its choosing (at buyer’s expense) for any eye issue claimed.
Your puppy is guaranteed to not be affected by PRA, CNM or EIC in its lifetime. Should there be an issue of
puppy being affected and buyer tests their puppy for PRA, EIC or CNM, such testing will be at buyer’s
expense. ONLY test results from the University of Minnesota (for EIC), Alfort, Optigen or Pawprints will be
acceptable to Rainmaker Labs. Should there be a test result of Affected for PRA, EIC or CNM, DNA testing of
the dog will be required, at buyer’s expense, to prove it is the same dog, unless the testing veterinarian
certifies in writing the microchip number of the dog and that microchip number matches with the one on
record with Rainmaker Labs, LLC.
Other requirements to qualify for a replacement puppy should the eyes/hips not receive an OFA/CERF
1. The puppy must have been fed a good quality puppy or all-life-stages type food until at least 12 months
of age and be determined by a veterinarian not to be obese or otherwise improperly fed. Calcium
supplements are highly discouraged as they may lead to too rapid and/or unhealthy growth.
2. If the dog is not being returned to Rainmaker Labs, LLC, said dog must be spayed or neutered at the
owner's expense and proof from the veterinarian performing the procedure must be provided to Rainmaker
3. The dog must not have ever whelped/sired a litter.
4. OFA/CERF exams must show no evidence of any acute/traumatic injury to the hip/eyes at issue which
may have negatively affected the rating.
5. Spay/neuter of your Rainmaker dog before 12 months of age voids this guarantee.
A replacement puppy of equal value as determined by purchase price of original puppy will be provided at the
earliest date such puppy is available. The original puppy may stay with you and need not be returned to
Rainmaker Labs, LLC. Buyer is responsible for all charges incurred for shipment of the puppy/dog, if
applicable. Should a higher priced puppy be chosen, buyer shall pay the difference from original puppy price.
Should the situation arise that the buyer cannot keep their dog, Rainmaker Labs, LLC will make all
reasonable efforts to help the buyer place the dog in another home and may, without compensation to the
buyer, take the dog back at its discretion.
Vet insurance is highly encouraged! It is inexpensive and life is full of unexpected surprises, you will be glad y
ou have it even if you never use it. www.petinsurancereview.com. I personally use Petplan and Embrace.
