Seller guarantees your puppy to be in good health on the day of delivery and will provide records of immunizations and parasite prevention. Buyer will have an appointment scheduled at your veterinarian’s office for a well check prior to taking possession of the puppy in order that he/she can be seen within three (3) days of taking possession. Exam must include a check for intestinal parasites. Buyer must make Seller aware immediately of any problems found by their veterinarian at this exam.
Buyer has been made aware that stress brought on by environmental change can often bring on signs of illness. Usually temporary, these still need to be treated appropriately especially if there is diarrhea. A healthy immune system can be impacted by the stress of going to a new home and leaving litter mates. These temporary illnesses are not covered by this guarantee.
Buyer understands that this guarantee does not cover viral illnesses, infections, improper bites, hernias, innocent (physiologic) heart murmurs, hypoglycemia, parasites, giardia, or coccidiosis, . It also does not include any physical injury or illness due to the ingestion of foreign objects, unsafe food or chemicals. Further, any condition that is minor, correctable with minimal treatment, or any condition that will go away as the puppy gets older, are not covered.
Buyer understands that puppy is being sold as a “Pet Only” and will be leaving Tall Timbers Labradoodles under a strict spay/neuter agreement with the understanding that the puppy will be not be used for breeding and will be spayed or neutered after the age of twelve (12) months but before eighteen (18) months. Cost of the spay or neuter will be the responsibility of the Buyer. Buyer must provide documentation to the Seller of proof of spay/neuter from a certified veterinary hospital showing the puppy’s description, breed and microchip number. If proof is not received, Seller’s warranty described herein shall become null and void.
If it is determined the puppy has a genetic disorder or debilitating congenital defect within 24 months of date of birth, the Buyer has the option of a replacement puppy from the next available litter or reimbursement of veterinary expenses related to that illness up to the purchase price of the original puppy. With either option Buyer has the choice to keep or return the affected puppy. The Buyer is responsible for expenses related to the delivery of the replacement puppy and/or return of the original puppy.
If the puppy should die from a suspected congenital defect within 24 months of its date of birth, an autopsy must be performed at the purchaser’s expense by a veterinary teaching hospital or state licensed DVM acceptable to the Seller’s veterinarian. If the autopsy shows a congenital defect as the reason of death, the Seller will provide another puppy of equal or greater value to the purchaser or full refund of purchase price. A written statement from the veterinarian must be provided. This warranty is void in the event of an indeterminable or inconclusive diagnosis.
During the first 24 months of life while this health guarantee is in effect, Buyer agrees to feed puppy only a premium quality dog food that is NOT a grain-free diet; maintain puppy at a healthy weight; provide veterinary care as recommended by your veterinarian; postpone strenuous, repetitive exercise until after the puppy is over 1 year of age; be careful about overexposure as puppies should not be brought to a heavy dog-traffic public place (i.e. pet store or dog park) until they have completed their full cycle of vaccinations due to risk of contagious illness.
