In short, up to 180 days after you receive your animal from me, if a vet can show that I sent you an animal that was ill or injured at the time of transfer I will pay either you or the vet for the care to heal your animal for the amount up to the full cost of the animal.

Note: Behavior is not considered to be a health related issue for  purposes of this policy. Animal behavior is not guaranteed.
