Laurel Crown Schnauzers

Health Guarantees



First 72-Hour Guarantee:

The free 30 days of Trupanion pet insurance policy must be activated by the Buyer 24 hours prior to transfer of possession of the puppy and remain active for this 72-hour Health Guarantee to be valid.  Failure to sign up for the free insurance will result in forfeiture of all Health Guarantee rights. 

I, Megan Asbill, hereby known as Laurel Crown Schnauzers, or LCS, certify that this puppy is in good health to the best of my knowledge by our personal observation, our tailored puppy care protocol, and by licensed Veterinarian wellness exams.  At the time we transfer possession of the puppy to the Buyer, the Buyer has 48 hours to have the new puppy examined by their licensed Veterinarian, excluding Saturday & Sunday.  Puppies picked up on Friday must see a Veterinarian on the very next Monday.  Please make these appointments before Go Home Day.  Failure to have the puppy checked within these 48 hours VOIDS ALL GUARANTEES.  Laurel Crown Schnauzers, Megan Asbill, does not reimburse for Veterinary expenses once possession of the puppy has been transferred to new owners.  That is why we require enrollment in the free pet insurance.  There is no guarantee on fatal viruses or parasites after 72 hours of transfer of possession of the puppy.  These viruses and parasites include, but are not limited to: PARVO, DISTEMPER, CORONA, adenovirus, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms, coccidia, giardia, or ear mites.

 If within 72 hours a puppy becomes sick or exhibits symptoms of illness, we ask that we be contacted right away and that Veterinary care is sought after immediately, even if symptoms occur after regular business hours.  Do not wait, puppies and their health are fragile, and time is of the essence.  Buyers are obligated to seek emergency Veterinary care in the event of sudden illness, accident, injury, or any other emergency.  Contact us, day or night, so we can offer advice if you are unsure of what to do.  We want to know if there is a problem of any sort.  Sometimes the stress of changing environments can upset a puppy’s system, however, we like to err on the side of caution and urge professional medical examination when warranted.  Buyer must notify us of the examining Veterinarian’s name, address & phone number within 48 hours of their certification of the puppy’s illness.  Documentation must be sent to us with all test results and the Veterinarian’s notes including assessment, diagnosis, and prognosis.  The puppy cannot be euthanized without our consent or this guarantee is void.  We will contact the Vet to discuss their findings.  Failure to notify Laurel Crown Schnauzers within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms of illness will result in forfeiture of all Health Guarantee rights.  In order for any money to be refunded for the purchase price of the puppy, a licensed Veterinarian must first deem the puppy unsalable in writing during this first 72-hour period and give a thorough explanation of why.  If they find a genetic health defect or an illness that we could have prevented, we want to know, and we want the puppy returned.  Upon return of the puppy, Laurel Crown Schnauzers will refund the purchase price in the unlikely event that our testing protocol, our prevention protocol, our Vets, and our own observations have failed or missed something.  We do not reimburse travel expenses for returning the puppy.  When the puppy reaches our home, we reserve the right to have the puppy re-examined by the Veterinarian(s) of our choice.  Once the diagnosis and the cause has been verified by a second opinion, the purchase price will be refunded in full to the original Buyer only.  We do not reimburse for Veterinary costs incurred while puppy is in the care and possession of new owners.  We take full responsibility for having them reexamined once in our care.

 There cannot be any signs or evidence of abuse or neglect in the puppy or the puppy will be repossessed by Laurel Crown Schnauzers and no money will be refunded.  Accidents that cause injury or death in the puppy will not be refunded by Laurel Crown Schnauzers.  We also will not refund a purchase price or reimburse for Vet care, treatment, or surgery due to accident or injury.  We encourage owners to utilize benefits of the free pet insurance, in the unfortunate event that it is needed.


 60-Month Health Guarantee:

Congenital defects are hereby defined in our policies as abnormalities which are untreatable and mean certain death for our puppies.  We have had the parents of our puppies DNA and genetically health tested, however, just as a vaccinated and dewormed puppy can develop illness or infection, they can also develop health defects.  Testing does not guarantee it will not happen, but dramatically reduces the chances.  Puppies are guaranteed against any congenital defect related to HEART, KIDNEY, OR LIVER conditions that may result in the death of the puppy within the first 60 months of life.  If for any reason the puppy dies within the first 60-month period of the Health Guarantee due to a suspected congenital defect of the heart, kidney, or liver, then the cause of death must be confirmed by an autopsy examination from an accredited institution, such at the University of Texas A&M.  The puppy may not be euthanized without our knowledge or consent prior to this taking place.  The necropsy report must be submitted to Megan Asbill in writing, and we will require a verbal discussion with the examiner.  Autopsies performed by a local Veterinarian will not be accepted.  The Buyer of the puppy will pay the expenses for the required examinations.  Any puppy with a confirmed congenital defect within 60 months of life will be replaced with another puppy of equal value from a future litter within 24 months.  No money will be refunded.

 After the puppy turns five (5) years of age and up to ten (10) years of age, in the event of the death of the puppy due to a genetic health condition from the heart, kidney, or liver, then Laurel Crown Schnauzers will issue a credit of 35% of the original purchase price of the puppy.  This credit is non-refundable and non-transferrable.  No money will be paid to the Buyer.  The 35% credit can be redeemed toward the purchase price of a new puppy from Laurel Crown Schnauzers within 24 months.  Current rates will apply, not the original purchase price.
