This legislation provides a modest guarantee to the purchaser of a puppy.
The buyer has 10 days to return the dog if it is diagnosed with, or dies from, a contagious or infectious disease, and 30 days to return the animal if the dog is diagnosed as having a congenital or hereditary defect; the purchaser can return the dog for a refund, return the dog for a replacement or keep the dog and receive veterinary fees not exceeding the purchase price.
A seller must provide a health record for the dog and a veterinarian's health certificate or the seller's guarantee of good health.
For a copy of the entire bill, please contact my office.
