Short Term Health Guarantee

This puppy has been checked by our personal veterinarian and found to be in good health. A copy of the veterinarian report is included in the puppy folder.

This puppy is guaranteed to be in good health, to the best of the Seller’s knowledge. Buyer has 72 hours, from the date of ownership in which to have the puppy checked by a licensed veterinarian of their choice. Failure to have puppy checked by a licensed veterinarian with 72 hours will void health guarantee. Buyer must e-mail or send a copy of the vet visit record to Ric-Den Kennels to become part of our records.

Our puppies are dewormed on a regular schedule and this information is included on the Puppy Health record which is located in the puppy folder. The seller cannot be held accountable for future diagnosis of bacterial or viral infectious diseases, giardia, parasites, fungi, etc. since these can be contracted anywhere in the environment after leaving and are not a result of genetics or breeding.

If there is a problem found at the veterinarian visit that cannot be rectified, the Buyer must notify the Seller within 24 hours of the veterinarian examination. The puppy must be returned to seller at the Buyer’s expense, along with the veterinarian report so that we can have the puppy examined by our vet. Once the condition has been verified, we will offer a replacement puppy (when available) or refund of the purchase price minus the deposit paid.

(Exclusion: This does not include the presence of parasites and does not apply to a health problem resulting from an injury or accident due to buyer’s negligence)

The following previsions will be honored.

1) All medical expenses are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

2) All puppies are vaccinated and treated for worms before they leave. However, buyer needs to be aware that these things can arise and that they are usually not serious and are easily treated and seller will not cover the treatment for them after the puppy leaves our possession.

3) Viral and bacterial diseases and bloody stools (from worms) are not covered in the health guarantee as they are natural things puppies can pick up from anywhere.

4) Umbilical hernias are not covered in the health guarantee. If the puppy has an umbilical hernia, this will be disclosed to the Buyer prior to making a deposit.

5) Seller will furnish Buyer with a health record showing all vaccinations and worming treatments that puppy has received while under our care.

Long Term Health Guarantee

The puppy is guaranteed against congenital defects up to 1 year of age. If there are any congenital life-threatening defects, they should become present within this time period. Should anything arise within this time due to a congenital life-threatening defect, the puppy will be replaced by one of the same qualities and value when one becomes available. There will be no cash refunds. The Buyer must provide a veterinarian statement detailing the life-threatening genetic defect and contact the Seller immediately upon discovery of a life-threatening genetic defect. Any delay in doing so, voids this guarantee.

This guarantee does not include expenses associated with the vet check, OFA exams, vaccinations, worming medication, transportation, carrier or other fees. The health guarantees mentioned in this agreement do not cover accidental death, neglect, abuse, or injuries that the puppy sustains in the care of the Buyer. Any health-related issues or loss of life due to reactions caused by vaccinations or flea and tick preparations administered either orally or on the skin are not covered under this guarantee. No warranty or guarantee is made to the disposition, life-span, size, color, show quality or breeding quality of any puppy. Retained testicles and hernias are excluded from this guarantee. In the case of sudden death of the puppy, seller must receive a written notice of the puppy’s death from Buyer’s Vet, along with a necropsy report indicating cause of death.

Vet Care. Buyer must agree to keep puppy under the care of a licensed Veterinarian throughout the dog’s lifespan.

Shipping of Puppy.
