Health Guarantee

 

All Poodles bred and sold by Abounding Poodles are up-to-date in their medical treatments. Dogs are checked by a veterinarian prior to delivery or shipping and are guaranteed to be sound and in good health at that time. However, on PUPPIES whose age at a date of sale precludes completion of the scheduled series of inoculations, it is necessary for the purchaser to complete the scheduled series of inoculations ON TIME, in order to protect the puppy and for this health guarantee to remain valid. A timetable for this series of inoculations will be supplied on the medical history of the puppy. In addition, until this series of inoculations has been complete the puppy should not be exposed to premises known to be suspected of being contaminated, or unhealthy animals. 

The Buyer has researched and is knowledgeable of the non life threatening problems that a poodle may have, and agrees that these are not covered under this health guarantee. The buyer is advised to have this puppy examined by a competent veterinarian of the buyers' choice within 2 business days to assure them that they have purchased a healthy puppy. This will be done at the purchaser's expense. Under no circumstances will Abounding Poodles be responsible for any veterinarian bills acquired by the purchaser for this puppy. Minor, breed related, treatable or correctable conditions (such as Patellar Luxation, Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease, PRA-Prcd, etc), or any condition that may go away or is considered to be a condition which a puppy will likely outgrow, are not covered.

Abounding Poodles certifies that at the time of sale and to the best of our knowledge, the puppy will be free of any congenital birth defects. Our puppies are guaranteed against parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis, kennel cough, or other communicable diseases at the time of sale. Should the puppy be found with any of the mentioned communicable diseases at the time of sale, please contact us immediately. This warranty does not cover the treatment of common ailments such as yeast infection or parasites such as mites, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms, giardia, or coccidia, which are common to growing puppies. Though our puppies are tested and dewormed at an early age, it is possible (though unlikely) that they may still have parasites at the time of sale. They must be tested and treated at the buyer’s expense.  

Abounding Poodles DOES NOT GIVE REFUNDS. We will give a replacement puppy for life threatening genetic diseases. If a health issue arises within the first TWELVE MONTHS of age which your vet believes could possibly be a life threatening genetic disease the following are the options:

(1)     A written explanation from a licensed veterinarian and backed up with lab work or x-rays as to the nature of the problem. 

(2)     A second opinion from a Vet whom Abounding Poodles have approved in advance to examine the puppy for signs of abuse or for life threatening congenital defect.

(3)     Return the puppy and AKC papers to us at buyers expense. If you are unwilling to release the puppy and AKC papers into my possession, we will not be responsible for any medical expenses incurred nor will we be a part of the recovery process.

(4)     Proof that the puppy was examined by a certified veterinarian no later than 2 working days after receiving the puppy.

If the Vet's prognosis is that the puppy has a life threatening genetic disease and all of the above criteria are met, we will replace a puppy of equal value when one comes available. No problems other than life threatening congenital defects are covered in this agreement.

Abounding Poodles offers this guarantee until the puppy reaches one year of age. If at any time you transfer ownership of the puppy, this agreement is void immediately.

Abounding Poodles is not responsible for the health of this Puppy after the 48 business hours period.  This is due to the possibility that the dog may become infected by a communicable disease after its delivery to the new owner.
