Not included are Coccidia and Kennel Cough, the latter of which is common in pups that are shipped, and is usually caused by bacterial exposure. Kennel Cough is self limiting and, like the common cold, must run its course. Full recovery is expected, and Kennel Cough alone is not life-threatening.
5.) The puppy is guaranteed until one (1) year of age against fatal congenital and/or genetic diseases affecting the animal. Such ailments include Severe Hip Dysplasia (which hampers the dogs movement and natural gait, and requires surgery to correct), and kidney, heart, pancreas, spine, and liver problems of a life-threatening nature. Certain disorders resultant from environmental factors, including allergies, thyroid dysfunction, demodectic mange, and other autoimmune disorders, are not covered by this guarantee.
