Health Guarantee 2018

Health Guarantee for Schnauzers Of Taylor
1) 48 hour guarantee: This puppy is in good health to the best of my knowledge by my own observation and using a seasoned veterinarian’s for exam. Buyer has 48 hours to have their new puppy examined by a licensed veterinarian, excluding Saturday & Sunday. Puppies picked up on Friday, must see vet on Monday. Failure to have the puppy checked within these 48 hours voids all guarantees. All vaccines must be administered by a licensed veterinarian ONLY. The breeder holds the right to have the puppy re-examined by their veterinarian to validate. Ear cropping and any vet expenses incurred by the buyer will not be refunded. Seller guarantees against fatal viruses for 48 hours after purchase. These include, but are not limited to, PARVO, DISTEMPER, CORONA. No guarantee on fatal viruses after 48 hours. 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. . Breeder does not guarantee against common puppy issues such as but not limited to coccidia, which can be caused by stress, worms, giardia, ear mites or kennel cough. These are common puppy ailments and can easily be treated. Your puppy has been treated on a schedule from the age of 2 weeks for these conditions and it is now the Buyers responsibility to continue on any needed treatments and have the puppy checked for parasites on a regular basis.
2) First Two Years: Puppy is guaranteed against any congenital disease that results in an unfortunate death of the puppy within the first 24 months** (see extension to 36 months***) of life. If the puppy dies then the buyer will pay for an necropsy to ascertain reason for death. If the reason is congenital (congenital defects are abnormalities which are untreatable and mean certain death), the breeder will replace the puppy at no additional cost to the buyer.
Extended Warranty:
***Animal health is Breeder’s top priority.
We feel that Lifes Abundance is a superior system for your puppy, we highly recommend it.
For feeding your puppy Lifes Abundance food and supplement system for the first 24 months of its life will extend the congenital disease replacement to 3 years.
However, under no circumstances will the health guarantee last longer than thirty-six (36) months or will the health guarantee continue if Buyer otherwise fails to comply with the terms of this Agreement.

** Years 2-5: After year one we commit to you that if your puppy has any issues, where as the puppy cannot live a healthy life we will issue you the following credit towards a new puppy: 35% of the original puppy price excluding shipping cost and vet fees.  **Breeder will not replace or refund for any personal reasons, but not limited to, allergies, mortality, landlord’s disapproval, family disagreement or any other problems not related to health, nor for a puppy’s death caused by neglect, exposure to weather, injury, choking, poisoning, etc. Breeder does not guarantee for any type hernias, patella luxation, cancer or retained testicles. Breeder does not guarantee environmental allergies, food allergies, schnauzer bumps, shot knots or vaccine reactions, teeth not falling out, over or under bites, minor heart murmurs level 1 or 2, hypoglycemia or thyroid issues. Small dogs do have trouble with bites when baby teeth that do not fall out are not removed, failing to do so cause the other teeth to grow in crooked.

No guarantee is also given on hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) which is preventable. All AKC papers and medical records must be returned. Note: The breeder cannot guarantee size or temperament.
