puppies & dogs have not been exposed to infectious diseases here. If your puppy is exposed to an
infectious disease after it leaves here, this is not covered under this LIMITED
HEALTH GUARANTEE. That is, infectious diseases are not covered by our
health guarantee, as we have no control over what the puppy is exposed to
after it leaves our kennel. We also cannot guarantee that your puppy
will never develop any health problems, just like a pediatrician cannot
guarantee that a child will never develop any health problems in the future. Our
sires and dams are free of diseases, disorders, and problems, or we would not
breed them. That means the puppies are less likely to develop problems.
However, we can't guarantee that puppies will never develop a problem.
stress induced illnesses, which may occur during or soon after shipping,
such as hypoglycemia, kennel cough, or clinical manifestations of intestinal
parasites (e.g. coccidia, roundworms, hookworms, giardia, etc.) are not
covered by this LIMITED
Taking a puppy away from its littermates and/or environment is very stressful
and can induce these illnesses. They should be treated early and will not affect
the puppy's life, if taken care of promptly by your veterinarian.
puppy has received its first vaccination (i.e. DA2P-Parvo/5-way puppy shot) and
at least two dewormings (i.e. fenbendazole). Further
vaccinations (e.g. DA2LP-Parvo/9-way adult shot w/ Lepto) are recommended
to be given, by your veterinarian, at 4-week intervals until the puppy is
14-16 weeks old, and then yearly after that. Deworming should be
repeated, by your veterinarian, as indicated by serial stool sample analysis, or
if worms or tapeworm segments are observed in the stool. A rabies vaccination
should be given according to your veterinarianís recommended vaccination
be aware that vaccinations sometimes fail for various reasons, and a dog
may not develop full immunity to some diseases until they are a full year old
and have had all of their puppy shots, including a booster at 1 year of age.
If you are not willing or able to make sure that your puppy gets ALL of its
scheduled vaccine boosters, please do not purchase a puppy.
That is, a strict adherence to all vaccination schedules and a veterinary
program is a must!
puppies rear dewclaws (i.e. if they were present) have been removed,
and its nails have been trimmed. Front dewclaws have not been removed
because the Beagle breed uses its front dewclaws to grab and hold onto things.
The puppy has also been inspected for any external parasites and given a bath.
your puppy is a male,
it has been checked to make certain that both of its testicles have dropped
down into the scrotum. If the testicles have not dropped by the time the pup
is ready to go home, the pup will be discounted, its registration restricted,
and the recommendation is that you not use this male for breeding.
puppy has been weaned
while being fed a gruel of powdered canine milk replacer and dry dog food.
However, it is now eating
only dry dog food (i.e. Black
Gold -- Premium Professional Dog Food, which is 26% protein
and 18% fat). Normal feeding
schedules should be 3 times per day; that
is, lay down a bowl full of dry puppy
food three times a day and let the pup eat all it wants and then take the food
away. Also, make
certain that water is available at all times. You will be given a 7-10 day
supply of our dog food to be used to gradually mix in with your puppy food at a rate of 10-15% more each day, until you are
feeding 100% of your own food.
D Kennels has carefully selected our dams and sires specifically for their
tractability (i.e. ease of training) and non-aggressive personalities. We also
continually monitor how our pups turn out through contact with our customers to
assure that these traits are being passed on to them. However, although we start
your puppy's socialization and training process, as well as offer advice on how
to train your puppy after you take it home, we cannot ultimately control the actual
training of your pup. That is, the training of your puppy is entirely your
responsibility and we here at Diamond D Kennels cannot be held
responsible in any way for undesirable training, or non-training, outcomes that
occur after they leave our facility. Thus, Diamond D Kennels will in no
way refund any money nor take back any puppy that has been deemed by the owner,
or anyone else, to have behavioral problems.
LIMITED HEALTH GUARANTEE applies only to the original purchaser of this puppy.
