HEALTH AND WELFARE
Threevalleys Gundogs have taken every care with breeding, rearing, and the welfare of your puppy. The puppy has been vet checked, is believed to be in good health and sold subject to it being understood that as a living creature it is impossible to predict how it will continue to develop, especially as regards behaviour over which you will have the principal influence.
The purchaser(s) is strongly advised to take the puppy to their vets, soon after purchase, for a general check and advice on inoculations and worming. It is always useful to establish a relationship with your vet at this stage. This check and any tests or examinations associated with it must be at your expense.
PURCHASER’S RIGHT TO RETURN THE PUPPY IN CASE OF DEFECT
If your veterinary surgeon finds any problem which, in his their opinion, renders the puppy unfit for sale, Threevalleys Gundogs will take the puppy back and refund the full purchase price on condition that the puppy is returned within 3 days of purchase and is in the same state of health as when it was sold. Before purchase you should consider the puppy as a living thing which will become a much loved member of the family in a very short time, and this may effect what you wish to do if return of the puppy becomes necessary. After drawing your attention to this possibility, we can not be held responsible for any distress caused to you and your family by return of the puppy.
Before purchase, we recommend that you consult your veterinary surgeon about this breed and any possible diseases, genetic or otherwise, to which it is prone, and you accept that I, the breeder, can not be held responsible if such a disease develops later in life; after a satisfactory preliminary examination by your veterinary surgeon.
