Puppy Health Guarantee
Our Puppy Health Guarantee
We offer a variety of guarantees for your new best friend.
When you adopt a puppy our relationship does not end with the delivery of your healthy puppy.
At The Puppy Store we do our best to ensure that our puppies are are healthy. But puppies are living creatures, so there is always the chance that they may become ill. We do our best to ensure that our puppies are healthy by taking preventive measures, such as having regular veterinarian check ups and vaccinations. The health of our puppies are important to us even after they are taken to their forever home, that’s why if something does go wrong we guarantee to try to make it right.
We have a licensed veterinarian check the health of our puppies on a regular basis, de-worm them, and ensure that they are up to date on all their vaccinations.
At The Puppy Store, we want to make sure that your new puppy is healthy even after they go home, that’s why we ask that you have your puppy taken to the vet within 3 days after they arrive in their forever home.

What You Are Required To Do
There is no better feeling than to deliver a cute furry bundle of joy to our customers. We want to keep you and your puppy happy by asking you to take a few precautionary measures to ensure your puppy is healthy and will live a long happy life.
Here’s what you should do:
- Take your puppy to the vet within 3 business days.
- After the exam make sure to keep and maintain a copy of the exam or medical record. Not taking your puppy to the vet within 3 days after receiving your puppy may void the guarantee. We understand life happens and sometimes vet appointments are not sooner than 3 days. If this is the case all we ask is that you communicate with us so we can update your puppies information in our system. The exam must be done by a licensed vet.
- The puppy will come with up-to-date shots, so make sure you do not give an additional vaccine to your puppy within the first ten days unless otherwise instructed by your vet.
- You will need to keep proof of the healthcare and maintenance of your puppy, which would include vaccinations and exams so please keep these in your personal files.
