We guarantee that your puppy will be sent home with you healthy and free of diseases to the best of our knowledge. We have had a recent veterinary good health report to further ensure the health of these puppies for you. If you take your puppy to a licensed veterinary within 3 days after your date of purchase and the vet finds an unforeseen congenital abnormality, it is your options to return your puppy for a full refund. You must present to us a written health report from your veterinary stating the defect.
If your puppy is exposed to an infectious disease after it leaves here, we cannot be held responsible, and this is not covered under the health guarantee.
We also cannot guarantee that your puppy will never develop any health problems, just like a pediatrician cannot guarantee that a child will never develop any health problems in the future. Some things are just not able to be predicted. Our parents are free of diseases, disorders, and health problems, or we would not breed them. That means the puppies are less likely to develop problems. However, we cannot guarantee that puppies will never develop a problem.
Please Be aware that vaccinations sometimes fail for various reasons, and a dog does not develop full immunity to some diseases until they are a full year old and have had all their puppy shots, including a booster at the age of 1 year. If you are not willing or able to make sure that your puppy gets ALL of his scheduled vaccines and boosters, please do not purchase a puppy. The ideal method of guarding your new puppy against illnesses is to keep it away from other puppies less than a year old, older dogs who have not had vaccines, any dog who is ill, and places where other dogs have been doing their business or other dogs have been ill until your puppy is at least a year old and has had his/her final booster. This isn't practical or possible, in many cases.
When you buy a puppy, you will receive a shot record booklet. You can put future shots, and vet information inside the envelope and keep it for future reference. Always, take the booklet with you to the vet's office. That way, he will know the vaccines, wormers, etc., that your pet has already had and will not inadvertently give him something the puppy doesn't need. We normally do not allow a puppy to leave here until 3 days after receiving wormer treatments.
Please note that the stress of a new home and environment can cause a puppy to have lower immunities for up to 10 days. He is at greatest risk for developing illness during this time period. Additionally, it is not uncommon for a puppy to stop eating for a few days. He then may become at risk for low blood sugar. I will follow with a post about this condition.
