Health Guarantee

Valley Himalayans guarantees that the kitten named above is free of Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and is free of the Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) at the time of purchase. The kitten is also guaranteed to be free of intestinal parasites and up to date on all vaccinations. A copy of the kitten's health record will be given to the buyer at the time of purchase. In addition, Valley Himalayans cannot warranty this kitten against any adverse reactions to future vaccinations.

 

The buyer has a 3 business day period to have the kitten examined by a licensed veterinarian. You should preferably have a veterinarian appointment set up in advance before your kitten arrives. A dated copy of your veterinarian’s health assessment must be received by Valley Himalayans within 10 days of receiving your kitten or this guarantee will be void.

 

If a licensed veterinarian finds the kitten to have a serious illness or deformity, a written statement by the veterinarian on his or her letterhead identifying the problem must be given to Valley Himalayans within the 10 day time limit stated above. The kitten may then be returned to the cattery at the buyer’s expense for one of similar quality. Serious illness means a shortened or painful lifespan. Valley Himalayans is not responsible for the costs of shipping a replacement kitten.

 

Each kitten is guaranteed to be flea and ear mite free at the time they leave the cattery. There is no excuse for a kitten to have either one of these. They are highly controllable and if the proper steps are taken they can be prevented. If your kitten is shipped, please be aware that there is the possibility for your kitten to pick up a few fleas on the flight. This would be a VERY rare occurrence and most likely wouldn't happen, but your kitten is in close quarters with animals from other breeders who may or may not have as high of standards as Valley Himalayans. In addition, all kittens being shipped are vet checked by a licensed veterinarian and will receive a veterinary certificate of health before being shipped, stating that they are in good health at the time of shipping. For the safety of your other pets, you should keep your new kitten in a separate area until checked by your vet.

 

Buyer is responsible for all vet related expenses once the kitten is released from Valley Himalayans. This includes initial exam, office visits, lab tests, vaccinations, medications, surgery or time off work. Either at initial visit or for any future visits. No medical care is authorized or will be paid for by Valley Himalayans. By signing this contract, the buyer is accepting these terms.

 

If the above named kitten dies within 1 (one) year of the date of purchase due to hereditary or congenital defects, Valley Himalayans will replace the cat or kitten with one of similar quality. THERE WILL BE NO CASH REFUNDS. To determine if the cat's death has been caused by a congenital or hereditary defect, Valley Himalayans must receive proof of the defect in the form of a complete necropsy report, completed by a licensed veterinarian. Valley Himalayans is not responsible for costs relating to the necropsy. If after reviewing the findings it is determined the death was under warranty, a replacement kitten of equal value would be offered as soon as possible. A total of up to 4 kittens will be offered as a replacement for the initial kitten. If the buyer turns down all 4 offers, they forfeit their right to another kitten.

 

Failure to have the kitten examined by a veterinarian within the stated amount of time, or any evidence of abuse, neglect, or mishandling releases Valley Himalayans from any responsibility regarding the kitten.

 

Valley Himalayans does not warranty against FIP in your kitten. FIP comes from a mutation of a feline intestinal virus (FECV) and no one can pinpoint when or where a cat was exposed to the virus and at what point it mutated into FIP. Some cats can be exposed to FECV and never develop FIP. The current means of testing for FIP has a high rate of false positives. Also, if you vaccinate your kitten against FIP, the test for FIP will always come back as positive even though your kitten may not actually have the disease.

If you choose to vaccinate your kitten against FIPV, this guarantee will be void.

 

It is agreed that this is an "As Is" sale; subject only to the warranties outlined herein which is the final agreement of all parties. By signing below, you acknowledge that you have read this contract in its entirety and agree to all of its requirements, stipulations and terms thereof, and that you have received a copy of this contract for your records.
