Purchase Agreement/ Health Guarantee
Purchase Agreement/Health Guarantee
Conditions and Terms
HEALTH & NUTRITION: Buyer agrees to keep the dog in good physical condition with regularly scheduled vaccinations, worming’s, flea, tick and heart-worm prevention and to provide proper shelter, exercise, fresh water, dog food, treats, pet care products and nutritional supplements as described in this paragraph. Because 60% of all degenerative disease is related to poor nutrition, we highly recommend that the puppy remain on Victor Hi-Pro Plus or a food of equal quality for the first year. This ensures they are getting all the proper nutrition they need to grow properly.
GUARANTEES: Seller is in compliance with all State (Iowa) regulations and makes every effort to ensure that the puppy is healthy at the time of transfer. We will not allow a puppy to leave until we are certain that the puppy is ready for the trip to your home and has passed a licensed veterinary health inspection, is free from any illness, and is eating well on its own. Your new puppy MUST be examined by a licensed veterinarian within 48 business hours of receiving your puppy to validate this guarantee.
Should your vet find the puppy “unfit” for sale upon this initial examination, it will be replaced provided the puppy is returned with a written statement from the vet stating the nature of their findings. Country View Doodles also has the right to have their vet check the puppy out prior to any exchange!! It is the Buyer’s responsibility to return the puppy along with all registration papers and other package contents. SELLER SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES THAT BUYER HAS INCURRED.
The seller will not guarantee the Leptospirosis Vaccine. We do not give our dogs this vaccine due to its many adverse side effects. If the buyer chooses to give this vaccine to your dog, any cost from adverse reactions such as a puppy coming down with an auto-immune disease shortly thereafter will not be covered. It is completely at the buyer's discretion to give the vaccine, but the seller has no responsibility to pay for adverse reactions or problems that could be associated with the vaccine, even if not proven. If you don't give the vaccine, you are at risk to get the disease. If you do give it, you are at risk for a reaction. Do your own research, consult with your vet and make your own decision.
Your new puppy has been given vaccines that were delivered to us in cold pack and were immediately transferred to our refrigerated storage until the vaccine was used and the coordinating label placed in your puppy’s vaccination booklet following the manufacturer's instructions. All vaccines are NOT created equal; therefore, you or your vet may notice a different schedule has been followed according to the specific vaccination administered. Because over vaccination can cause serious health consequences, any vaccination given before your puppy is due for its next vaccine will VOID this guarantee in its entirety. All our puppies have completed their regimen of immunization to their age appropriate vaccination schedule at time of delivery. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to set up an ongoing appropriate vaccination schedule with your vet. We assume no responsibility for any illness to other household pets resulting in being exposed to your new puppy.
This guarantee does NOT cover any costs associated with spaying or neutering, nor does it cover injury or death from any routine surgical procedure. Further, this guarantee does not cover any of the following conditions or minor flaws: coccidiosis, giardia, hypoglycemia, kennel cough, pneumonia, ear mites, ear infections, skin mites, mange (sarcoptic demodectic or cheyletiella), cherry eye or any other non-life-threatening eye, skin, or tissue issues, allergies, over or under bites, herniations, a non-life-threatening open fontanel, non-life-threatening bone or joint disorders such as but not limited to luxating patella’s and heart murmurs that are not life threatening. Seller cannot guarantee size, color, shedding, temperament or fertility (including presence of testicles) of any puppy. Seller cannot guarantee size or conformation and does not imply or intend to imply any potential and/or prospect of show quality of any puppy. In addition, Seller cannot guarantee that declaws will not re-grow and will not be responsible for any vet charges the Buyer may incur in removing dewclaws or tail docking.

I have included in your puppy packet a complete health record and a Veterinarian’s Certificate of Health for your DVM to review. ***Please do not expose your puppy to other dogs that are not vaccinated until he/she has completed the entire vaccination schedule - around 16-20 weeks old.

The breeder will disclose any known illnesses or health issues prior to the sale.

Buyer shall voluntarily surrender any kennel club registration papers (if applicable), microchip records, and health records.
I do not cover surgery related to umbilical hernias, if your puppy should have one or any problems associated with one. Your puppy has been offered at a discount if there is one present as we disclose any faults at time of sale. I do not guarantee size as puppies can inherit genes from either parent. The buyer must agree to provide veterinary care within this first year, including annual heart worm checks and preventatives and to keep vaccinations current. Failure to comply with and provide documentation of the above requirements voids this warranty. Hypoglycemic shock and death is covered within 72 hours after leaving my premises. If your puppy were to die because of hypoglycemic issues within 72 hours, I will refund the purchase price of the puppy. Vet bills treating this condition are not covered. At the time of transfer, you assume all continued health care of puppy and accept the responsibilities of pet ownership and accept the puppy as is on date of sale.
If Buyer complies with all the terms contained within this agreement, then Seller warrants the health of the puppy for one (1) years of life against genetic life-threatening genetic defects.
The dog must NOT breed before the age of two (2) years otherwise this contract is NULL and VOID as to any guarantees. This only applies to those that were granted any breeding rights. (Poodles Only). The dog must be fully genetics tested at the same level as what Country View Doodles provides.
