General Health Guarantee

Brightleaf Goldendoodles provides a 72-hour general health guarantee. Your puppy will have had all vaccinations, be dewormed and microchipped by the time he/she is ready to go home at 8 weeks of age. Under no circumstance will the puppy go home sooner. There is an additional $15 a day charge for puppies kept longer than 8 weeks of age. We do ask that you take your puppy to be checked by a licensed veterinarian within these 72 hours and schedule your future vaccinations. We will not be responsible for any vet bills. Worms (internal parasites) are common in puppies and we recommend that a stool sample be checked by the vet at all your puppy’s check-ups. We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to keep your puppy away from other dogs and public areas until he/she is fully vaccinated as there are many diseases such as Parvo which are deadly to new puppies.

There will be no returns on a puppy unless you have met the above criteria. If your puppy does become seriously ill within this time, please go to your vet and get a letter of diagnosis to be given to me upon the return of your puppy. No puppy has ever been returned for health or temperament issues.
