Each of our families abides by the following Health Guarantee. However, the guarantees are contracted by the individual breeding family. Refunds or replacements are the responsibility of the individual breeding family.
Your puppy is guaranteed to be in good health at the time of delivery. The puppy will have all age appropriate vaccinations, worming, and permanent identification (microchip). The buyer has a 48 hour (excluding weekends) guarantee in which he/she is encouraged to have the puppy examined by his/her own Veterinarian (at the buyers expense).
Should the Veterinarian find a minor pre-existing condition during the examination, the seller agrees to reimburse for the cost of any medications or treatment necessary to correct the condition; up to the amount of $100; this includes treatment of Coccidia, Giardia and other stress related illnesses that may occur due to the stress of the move to their new home (note: this does not cover testing/retesting). If the Veterinarian finds any serious problems that would impair the puppies ability to function as a pet, the buyer has the option to return the puppy along with a written diagnosis from the attending Veterinarian within 48 hours of the examination for a full refund of the purchase price (Veterinarian expenses for diagnosis, shipping, travel, etc. will not be reimbursed).
Note: Puppies are sold as pet/companion only on a mandatory spay/neuter contract. Serious conditions are those that will impair your puppies ability to have a normal life (i.e.: hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, PRA, and vWD). Please note that all puppies, including those sold as pets, are guaranteed to be free of serious life altering defects.
The buyer is responsible to contract with a licensed veterinarian to complete the necessary vaccinations and establish a parasite prevention program.
We guarantee our puppies to be free of genetic/birth defects (excluding dental malocclusions) up to 24 months of age. In the event that the puppy/dog is diagnosed with a hereditary/birth disorder (as diagnosed by a licensed Veterinarian, and verified by OFA, CERF, or Certified DNA Lab), the buyer must supply copies of the associated reports to the seller (microchip identification must be verified by a licensed Veterinarian, and recorded on all reports).
Once the reports have been verified by the seller, the buyer has one of two options: 1.) The buyer can keep the puppy/dog; at which time Linder Labradoodles will take full responsibility for the Veterinary care up to the purchase price of the puppy/dog (this does not include shipping, travel, diagnosis or any other costs incurred other than the initial purchase price). Any additional expenses, beyond the original purchase price, incurred during the lifetime of the puppy/dog, would be the responsibility of the buyer. 2.) The buyer can return the puppy/dog to the seller; at which time Linder Labradoodles will provide a replacement puppy of equal value from the next available litter. Note: Veterinarian expenses for diagnosis, shipping, travel, etc. will not be reimbursed.
