Double U Doodles Health Contract

    Double U Doodles guarantees that the puppy is healthy at the time of sale. Prior to purchase, the puppy was examined by a licensed veterinarian and was given the first in the series of four DHPP vaccines. Copies of the exam, shot record, and any medical findings were given to the buyer as part of the sale. However, to validate the health guarantee, buyer must take their new puppy to their veterinarian within 3 business days of purchase. If a vet finds the puppy to be in unacceptable health condition, the buyer must notify Double U Doodles within 5 days of receiving the puppy. The vet must make a statement on letterhead that the puppy is unhealthy and not suitable for purchase, and Double U Doodles will retake ownership of the defective/unhealthy puppy and refund the buyer in full, excluding the costs of transportation and any vet bills incurred by the buyer.

    This health guarantee is contingent upon feeding high quality food (rated 4.5 stars or higher on website dogfood advisor), and vaccinating/deworming according to the proper protocol established by a licensed vet (not purchased online or at a Farm store). Please keep receipts to verify conditions were met. If these conditions are met, Double U Doodles provides a lifetime guarantee for the following genetic conditions: Degenerative Myleopathy, Neonatal Encelopathy with Seizures, Progressive Retinal Atrophy type 1 and 2, Progressive Rod/Cone degeneration, GM2 Gangliocidosis, Osteochondrodysplasia, and Von Willebrand disease.

    Double U Doodles provides a 2-year guarantee explicitly for the following conditions: Cancer, hip displaysia, genetic eye conditions, and epilepsy. If the puppy is diagnosed by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals as being hip dysplastic before age 2 years old, the buyer must submit a copy of the OFA report to Double U Doodles. Hip/elbow displaysia can be caused by environment, such as obesity, early spay/neuter, and over-exercising a young dog; therefore, the buyer agrees to maintain a healthy weight dog, spay/neuter after puberty, and to provide moderate exercise as outlined in the Puppy Culture packet provided. If the puppy should contract any of the above genetic conditions, the vet must make a statement on letterhead that the puppy has a genetic condition and Double U Doodles will retake ownership of the defective/unhealthy puppy (if the buyers desire) and replace the puppy with a puppy from the next available litter.
    Double U Doodles will not refund the costs of transportation or any vet bills.

    Growth hormones contribute to bone density. Buyer agrees to leave the puppy sexually intact until age 9 months in order for the hip/elbow/joint guarantee to apply.

    ALL puppies are born with parasites, and the stress of going to a new home can reactive dormant parasites/infections/viruses. Our puppies receive Pyrantal deworming medicine at ages 2, 4 and 6 weeks of age, to prevent pin worms, round worms and hook worms. In addition, our puppies receive Puppies receive Pyrantel at weeks 1,2,3,4,6 Panacur at week 5,7 to prevent whip worms and giardia and corid to prevent coccidia at week 5,6,7. However, puppies can still have parasites that resisted treatment. Your vet should provide a routine deworming and/or fecal test and treat according to findings. Double U Doodles does NOT make any real or implied guarantee against common puppy parasites, as listed above. No matter how clean and well-kept, because they have immature immune systems, puppies also commonly contract ear infections, vaginitis, urinary tract infections, impetigo and other bacterial/viral infections. Double U Doodles will not reimburse buyer for any vet bills. Providing your puppy medical care is a large part of pet ownership. Buyer agrees to immediately active the 30 days of free Trupanion insurance provided to them by Double U Doodles.

    A licensed veterinarian has examined the puppies and administered only one (out of the series of four) core DHPP vaccinations, which is appropriate for the puppy’s age. Puppies can contract Parvovirus or distemper (which are deadly) in public places and should not be taken to dog parks etc. until the entire series has been administered. Playing with dogs that you KNOW are vaccinated is absolutely okay and great for socialization. Over vaccinating young puppies too early can result in autoimmune diseases (such as Puppy Strangles) and no additional vaccinations should be administered until three weeks after the first DHPP vaccination. Optional vaccines, such as Lyme, Bordetella, Lepto, Canine Flu (and others) should be postponed if possible, and individual risk factors should be assessed before administering these extra and optional vaccinations.

    Buyer understands that the purchase price is nonrefundable. No dog is 100 percent hypoallergenic and Double U Doodles does not imply that all allergy sufferers can tolerate a goldendoodle. Double U Doodles does not guarantee that a puppy will grow to a specific size as many factors determine adult size, including food and exercise. If a Double U Doodles does needs to be rehomed, for any reason, buyer agrees to return the dog to Double U Doodles to assess and rehome as needed. All puppies require training; therefore, buyer agrees to teach the puppy house manners and attend basic dog obedience classes.
