Lola's Labradoodles guarantees your puppy to be in good health on the day of delivery. Your puppy will come with a written health check by our Vet along with an immunization and worming record.
It is the Buyers responsibility to have an appointment prearranged at your Vets office for a well check prior to picking up your puppy so he/she can be seen within the three day agreement listed in the contract. This is important to establish the puppy was sold to you in good health. The Buyer must make Seller aware immediately of any problems found by their Vet during this exam. If Buyer fails to have the new puppy examined by a licensed Vet upon possession within this three day period, they agree the puppy was healthy at the time of transfer.
The Buyer has been made aware that stress brought on by environmental changes can often bring on signs of illness caused by these stressful circumstances. Although this is usually temporary, these symptoms need to be treated especially if puppy is having diarrhea. A healthy immune system can be lowered through stress and it is not uncommon for a pup to be happy and healthy with a solid stool here and in less than a week begin to have diarrhea. This is due to the immune system being stressed during the transition from the home environment to his/her new environment. When a puppy has a good immune system in place, his body is able to fight off many parasites such as worms and diseases such as Giardia and Coccidia. Once their immune defenses are lowered, these bugs if present in their system, can flourish if they get the chance. Often, it is nothing to be alarmed about and is very common in puppies. The puppies will act normal and usually have a good appetite, but their stool will become soft and sometimes runny. This will need to be treated if observed and your Veterinarian can test the stool to find out if anything is present. If this happens in the first week of ownership, Lola's Labradoodles will pay for the medication and fecal exam used to treat their loose stool
The Buyer is responsible to bring in a stool sample at time of their first vet exam. Seller will pay for any medication needed to treat parasites in the case any were found. This would only be guaranteed if the diagnosis was from test results performed at a lab and not a fecal floatation test performed at the Veterinarian's office. Lab charges are not covered as this is typical testing of any quality well check exam. Any medication used for treatment after this initial point will be covered by Buyer.
The Buyer has the right to return the puppy to the seller within three days after delivery and receive a refund of the purchase price if the puppy is found by a veterinarian to be suffering from any illness or disease. If a professional Veterinarian does not examine the puppy within this three-day period the above mentioned return/refund policy will be void. We have no control where you will take your puppy after you leave here. It is the Buyers responsibility to protect the puppy from any contact with communicable diseases by not exposing them to public places and keeping up to date on immunizations. Early socialization classes are so important and I would not worry about this kind of public activity as most reputable classes are held in very controlled environments. Keeping your puppy away from public parks and beaches, etc, until at least 4 months of age or when the puppy has completed his immunizations recommended.
Lola's Labradoodles guarantees the puppy is free of hereditary defects to the best of our knowledge. All of our puppies come with a two year guarantee against life threatening genetic defects. Your puppy will be guaranteed they are free from hip dysplasia, organ failure, or any debilitating disease that would cause the dog to lose quality of life at a young age. Written diagnosis by your vet with proof of lab testing and x-rays will be required in the event a dog has lost quality of life at this time by either early onset of debilitating disease or hip dysplasia. OFA results proving signs of hip dysplasia must be available for all hip guarantees. A refund of the purchase price or the choice of a replacement puppy would be offered. Both parents have been tested for major health issues before breeding. A written explanation from your veterinarian will be required with proper identification of your dog including size/weight, sex and color, Microchip number included on the diagnosis. A Spay/Neuter certificate dated before 9-12 months of age of your dog is also required. Items not covered under this guarantee would be any form of cancers, allergies, mild skin conditions, occasional seizures, diabetes, hip problems due to an over weight or over worked dog, or problems related to parasite infestation or human neglect. Many of these can be alleviated through environmental or diet changes that we have no control over. Please keep your dog up to date on all immunizations and heartworm programs, as this will be required to fulfill this guarantee. In the event a pup/dog under two was diagnosed with a deadly form of cancer or any illness that would cause his life to be shortened beyond 3 years we would offer a replacement puppy at anytime after diagnosis or after loss of the dog due to illness.
In the event the puppy was sold at a price other than the going litter price because of age, hair coat, etc. then the amount paid for your puppy would be returned or it would be applied toward the full price of a new puppy from a different litter should any abnormalities be found on or before two years of age. A replacement puppy of like kind at no cost may be an option if diagnosis is made within the first year of the dog’s life.
The Buyer shall maintain the puppy in proper condition by adhering to a regular immunization schedule, heartworm preventative, good diet and exercise and a safe, clean and loving environment. There is no replacement guarantee or refund for problems attributed to the dogs poor health by irresponsible care, conditions caused by dogs being overweight, allergies, accidental injuries or death.
All guarantees are to the original Buyer and are not transferable.
Our puppies are sold as companion dogs and not as breeding dogs. If your dog has not been neutered or spayed by 9-12 months old this entire guarantee will be null and void. Proper Vet verification of this procedure will be required in the event you decide to redeem guarantee. We do this because it is our desire to make sure all offspring are the result of responsible breeding procedures. Both parents must be health tested before they are bred. We do sell breeding dogs under a different contract and price. Call us if you are interested in purchasing a dog for breeding. We encourage you to send us pictures of your new puppy if you like. We will only post pictures you want us to post. We love these dogs and we want to ensure not only YOU are happy...but also the DOG is happy!
