Our Health Guarantee

       Our goal is to produce healthy quality puppies for people to enjoy for a long time in their lives. I do not believe that the puppy you have had in your home is replaceable, but I do feel that sometimes the loss of a four legged family friend can be lessened with the addition of a new one. In the unfortunate event that your puppy would need to be put down within the first year of its life due to genetics, or if it is found to have congenital or hereditary disorders that adversely affect the health of your puppy I will replace your puppy with your pick of a puppy from any of my females/male combinations. The cause of death or condition will have to be certified and recorded by a licensed veterinarian. In the event that the puppy has not died and there is an issue you may be asked to submit x-rays or have the condition verified with a second opinion.

In the event that the condition or death is due to genetics and occurs after the puppy turns 1 year old I will give you credit for 50% of your purchase price towards the purchase costs of a new puppy from any of my female/ male combinations. The cause of death or condition will have to be certified by a licensed veterinarian and you may be asked to have a second opinion or to submit x-rays taken to diagnose the condition. 

I cannot guarantee that your puppy will never become ill or need more than routine veterinary care, and this guarantee does not cover the reimbursement of any veterinary bills associated with this puppy. 

What I need from you:

Nothing would make me happier than knowing that I have been a part of bringing a happy healthy puppy to your family. To help ensure this I will have a veterinarian examine your puppy not more than one week prior to the date you take possession of your puppy, and I ask that you have your veterinarian do an examination of your puppy not more than 5 days after receiving your puppy. After your veterinarian has examined your puppy please submit a copy of your puppies medical record to me or you can email it to timbercreekgoldenretrievers@gmail.com

Your puppy will come with all age appropriate vaccinations and dewormings, but it may still need more to be fully vaccinated. I will send a copy of all vaccines and dewormings your puppy has received with your puppy along with when the next set of vaccinations and dewormings is recommended. After that you and your veterinarian should establish what vaccines and care your puppy should receive. 

Exceptions to the Guarantee:

I cannot guarantee the disposition or temperament, conformation, size, weight, color, or breeding ability

of your new puppy.

I cannot replace your puppy for hip or elbow dysplasia if your puppy is overweight and/or if you cannot produce a history of joint supplement vitamins, and maintained a proper diet of premium foods. All food changes must be approved for your health guarantee to withstand by the breeder. 
In the event that your puppy is diagnosed with hip or elbow dysplasia the breeder will require x-rays and a second opinion from a Vet of the breeders choice. 

I cannot replace your puppy if routine medical care has not been maintained for your puppy. This includes all vaccines, deworming, heartworm prevention, and flea and tick prevention. You are required to have your puppy seen annually by your veterinarian and maintain all vaccines and preventative care as recommended by your veterinarian. 

This guarantee does not include any costs associated with spaying and neutering this puppy including that of undescended testicles.  

Failure to receive adequate and regular veterinary care will void this guarantee.
