Our Health Guarantee

All Silver Creek Doodles breeding Dogs are tested for Hip, Elbow, Eye, Cardiac, and Patella conditions. They also receive genetic health tests (if they are not cleared by parentage). Therefore, Silver Creek Doodles guarantees against the congenital conditions listed below that greatly diminish the quality of the dog’s life or results in the dog’s death until the dog reaches 2 years of age (4 Years of age for those who feed our recommended diet). Unfortunately, because these conditions can also be caused by the dog’s lifestyle, the warranty is null and void if the condition is attributed to injury, neglect, obesity, rapid growth due to poor nutrition and/or strenuous, repetitive exercise (such as agility training or running miles a day) that takes place before 18 months of age. We guarantee genetic conditions for the lifetime of the dog.

In the unfortunate event that a dog is confirmed affected by one of the following congenital or genetic conditions, the Buyer can elect to either receive a replacement puppy (only in the event of the death of the original dog) or receive reimbursement of vet bills for treatment of the condition up to 100% the purchase price of the dog (this does not include the Breeder’s Fee). Reimbursement is for treatment only, no reimbursement for tests to diagnose the condition will be given. If the dog is covered by a pet insurance company, such as Trupanion or Embrace, then reimbursement only covers the deductible. All reimbursements will be submitted and treatment must be provided within 1 year of the diagnosis. Congenital conditions must be confirmed by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (for HD, ED, and Luxating Patellas), or a Board Certified Canine Cardiologist (for Cardiac Disorders). All genetic conditions must be confirmed by an OFFA approved lab.

Silver Creek Doodles Guarantee does not include viral illnesses, infections, improper bites, heart murmurs, hernias, or parasites. It also does not cover illness due to the ingestion of foreign objects, food, chemicals, or physical injury. This warranty is included in our contract (we are happy to provide a copy of our contract upon request).
