Hedrick's English Bulldogs guarantees that all puppies are in excellent health at the time of delivery. Puppy is guaranteed for 1 year from any genetic/hereditary illness. Puppy must be examined by a licensed veterinarian, at buyer’s expense, within three days of purchase of puppy. This guarantee is valid only to the person who purchased the puppy. Breeder is not responsible for any expense occurring once a puppy leaves the sellers possession. Buyer also pays any shipping expenses.
If a genetic/life threatening illness is detected by a licensed veterinarian, the buyers return the puppy and the papers to the seller immediately along with a letter from the veterinarian stating the medical reason for the return of the puppy. Breeder has the right to take the puppy to our vet for a second opinion. Undescended testicles and hernias are not life threatening genetic illnesses. If any medical treatment is performed, this guarantee is null and void. No guarantee is given for any kind of worms, coccidiosis, or giardia, mites, or any other parasite – they are all too common - Including parvo, corona and distemper. Hypoglycemia is preventable and is not a genetic defect; therefore is not covered under this guarantee.
In the event a puppy dies within the three day period, a necropsy by a licensed veterinarian must be performed to determine the cause of death – at seller expense. A copy of the necropsy must be provided to the seller within three days of the necropsy/death of the puppy along with its paperwork – failure to do this will void this guarantee.
Breeder will not replace a puppy for any reason not related to a serious genetic life threatening illness. The seller will exchange the puppy for another one of the same sex, size, color and value if available. If seller has no similar puppies within one year, seller will refund the purchase price of the puppy.
