A puppy’s health is dependent on a number of variables such as genetics, exercise, food and nourishment and overall care which is not always within our control. While we can’t guarantee your puppy will never have a health problem, we can promise we will do our best to ensure your new family member is healthy from the moment you take her or him home!
This guarantee describes Biscuits N Gravy Havanese commitment to you if a health issue arises with your puppy. It also outlines your responsibilities as the owner.
This guarantee only covers puppies which have been delivered within the US and continue to reside in the US.
Before your puppy goes to his/her forever home they have been examined, de-wormed and current on all vaccinations and Biscuits N Gravy warrants that the puppy is health at the time of the sale to the best of our ability. You will receive health records with list the date and vaccinations that were given. It is important that your puppy continue to receive additional vaccinations as necessary to keep it protected against infectious canine diseases. Not maintaining veterinary provided vaccinations will void this health guarantee.

The puppy must be returned to the breeder within 96 hours along with a written statement from the examining veterinarian with the reason the puppy was deemed unfit for sale. Returning the puppy will be at the buyer’s expense.
