Caemawr Shih Tzu

Our Health Guarentee

The purchaser agrees to have the puppy examined by a licensed veterinarian within 72 business hours. A copy of the exam must be mailed to Seller; post marked within 5 business days of the purchase. This is mandatory to start your 5 year guarantee against Congenital defects. Failure to have animal checked within the set timeline voids this guarantee. If your puppy develops a condition that dates back to the fetal stage and this condition would severely impact the quality of life short of euthanasia; you will receive a replacement puppy. These conditions are listed and limited to heart, kidney, and liver from the date of puppies birth. No other conditions are covered in this contract.

1.  This guarantee is NOT transferable.

2.  We warranty that this puppy will not have liver, kidney, or heart problems for 5 years and this contract is limited to only these defects and includes or covers nothing else. If one is found….or in case of death an autopsy must be performed (at Buyer’s expense) and you must provide to Seller immediately, written documentation from a certified vet stating the defect or cause of death and Seller will send it to our vet for review. No puppy will be replaced that fails to have the proper veterinary care.

3.  Seller will issue a new puppy to you, the first available of the same value, as soon as possible. Seller will NOT pay for shipping of new replacement puppy if puppy is to be shipped. Or we can offer you 30% refund from the price that you paid for your baby – Not including shipping, to help you with the treatment. We understand that it is difficult for most people to return their little babies after having spent time with them; therefore we do not expect you to return the puppy to get a replacement puppy.  If you so chose to return the puppy we will gladly accept him back at no cost to us.

4.  Seller does not guarantee hypoglycemia (this is up to the new owner to prevent). If you are going to become a toy dog owner you will want to know the symptoms of hypoglycemia.  Information about preventing this is included in the puppies paperwork.

6.  We guarantee parvovirus and distemper ONLY if we are contacted within 5 days because the puppy can get the disease after it departs our home. Diagnosis and lab result must be provided immediately to Seller.

7.  Seller is not responsible for any vet or medical bills that are incurred by the said puppy from the date the puppy leaves with its new owner.
