Thanks for the info the vet said they usually do the certs. Before they are 1yr old but they might just want my money lol. How often do you lab come into cycle or does it depend on the dog?

my labs typically dont cycle until they 18-26 months old. not a good didea to breed first heat cycle. eyes can be cartifies at any time, but official OFA hips and elbows cannot be done until they 24 months of age
