To our knowledge, we are the only Chow Chow breeding kennel in America that provides a most generous 3-year Health Guarantee. On a one-time basis, (not including replacement puppies) we guarantee the health of puppies purchased from our kennel against debilitating genetic defects for their first 3 years with the replacement of the puppy … if diagnosed and properly documented by a certified veterinarian and confirmed by our veterinarian. Note: The veterinarian must state in writing that the condition will prevent the dog from leading a reasonably normal life.
If you choose to have corrective surgery to address the condition, which will enable the dog to lead a reasonably normal life with a normal life expectancy, our guarantee will not apply. However, if you must have your dog euthanized based on your health provider’s prognosis, then our guarantee will apply with written proof of said euthanization.
Note: Entropion is a health condition commonly found in Chows, in which the dog’s eyelid(s) turn slightly inward towards the eyeball, rather than outward as they should. This causes irritation to the eye, producing excessive tearing, and if left untreated, could theoretically lead to blindness. However, if it is properly diagnosed as a puppy, it is easily treated by a simple inexpensive procedure that permanently corrects the condition for the lifetime of the dog. Although this condition can be genetically inherited, it can also develop as a result of an eye injury or infection. Therefore, due to the uncertainty, we cannot include this particular condition in our health guarantee.
The time period of our guarantee begins with the puppy’s birthday.
1st Year – 100% … From your puppy’s birth to its’ first birthday, we will credit you 100% of the cost for a replacement puppy.
2d Year – 50% … From its’ first birthday until its’ second birthday we will credit you 50% of the cost for a replacement puppy.
3d Year – 25% … From its’ second birthday to its’ third birthday we will credit you 25% of the cost for a replacement puppy.
