Health Guarantee

The kitten is guaranteed to be in good physical health, parasite free and up to date on vaccinations on the date the kitten was received by the buyer. Buyer has 72 hours to have the kitten examined by a licensed veterinarian.  Failure to do so voids the health guarantee. Until the kitten has been examined by a veterinarian, he or she needs to be kept away from all other animals. 

If any serious congenital defect is found by the veterinarian during the initial exam performed within 72 hours, then buyer must report this to the seller immediately.

In the rare case that something serious is found by the veterinarian within the 72-hour period then the seller is responsible for replacing the kitten with another kitten of equal or greater value as soon as possible. We do not cover any heart murmur that are low grade, but buyer notify us within 72 hours of any grade 3 or above murmurs.

If a replacement kitten is not available within 1 year, then seller agrees to reimburse buyer the sale price of the kitten. Kitten is guaranteed to be free of fatal or serious congenital defects for 2 years from its date of birth. If kitten is found to have any serious congenital defect within the 2-year period then seller agrees to replace the kitten within 1 year. Seller has the right to request a second opinion from another licensed veterinarian at the buyer’s expense.  If kitten dies suddenly then a necropsy report performed by a licensed veterinarian must show that the cause of death was related to a congenital condition. Buyer is responsible for all fees relating to obtaining a necropsy report.  If a congenital defect was found to be the cause of death, then seller agrees to replace the kitten within a period of 1 year. If there is not a kitten available within 1 year then seller agrees to reimburse buyer the sale price of the kitten.

The kitten should not be administered the rabies vaccine at the same time as any other vaccines. Kittens are at increased risk for adverse reactions or death if the rabies vaccine is given at the same time as other vaccines. 

If the rabies vaccine is given at the same time as other vaccines and the kitten dies within 10 days of said vaccines then the health guarantee is void. No cash refunds.  Seller is not responsible if the kitten dies of a virus from being exposed to another cat not from EastCoastDolls cattery. Under no circumstance will any veterinary bills incurred by the buyer be reimbursed by the seller.

These are strictly indoor cats only. DO NOT ever expose to unknown outdoor cats/animals.

Allowing your kitten outdoors where it may be exposed to diseases, fleas, ticks and parasites, voids the health guarantee.

Adopter is responsible for ALL veterinary expenses incurred after acquiring kitten(s).

Spay/Neuter Agreement:
Buyer fully understands that this kitten has already been altered, or will be altered before 6 months of age at buyer’s expense.

Declaw:
Buyer agrees to NEVER declaw this kitten. Declawing is the surgical removal of not only the nail but the removal of the first joint of each toe. Declawing provides no health benefit to the kitten or cat.

Infectious Disease and Genetic addition:

EastCoastDolls only offers a limited three-day guarantee for anything infectious after three days of leaving our home. Kittens have developing immune systems and it is important that every measure is taken to ensure they are healthy possible. The kitten must be examined by a vet within three days of leaving our home and verified as healthy or neither of our guarantees will not cover said kitten.

The kitten must receive all shots as dictated by a standard vaccination schedule and their veterinarian. If a kitten is deemed unhealthy within three days of leaving our premise, we will either replace the kitten with a healthy one or refund the payment amount.

We will not pay for any vet fees for their initial checkup, or if treatment is started within this three-day period without consulting us first. Likewise, we will not pay any veterinarian fees for anything that comes up after the three days guarantee whether it is genetic or viral. If three days has passed since the kitten has gone home and there has not been any issues reported at this time you are agreeing you have accepted the kitten in good health.

 

Scenarios that void all guarantees, genetic and viral would be as follows:

  • Other cats in the home that are allowed outside in the last year outside at all aside from vet visits
  • Kitten bought from EastCoastDolls being allowed outside at all aside from vet visits
  • Not following a routine vaccination schedule including all kitten shots, rabies yearly, and boosters. This includes any shots we identify as you needing to give after kittens go home since vaccination is an ongoing process and all mandated by your vet
  • Being unable to provide documentation of viral or genetic conditions you are asking to be covered
  • Being unable to provide documentation verifying shots have been kept up to date and the kitten has seen a vet regularly and in a timely fashion. Any possible issues should be addressed by a vet within twenty-four hours including potential viral illnesses and genetic issues. We want our kittens to be healthy and well cared for and seeing a vet if something is wrong is part of that.
  • Not notifying us of anything viral within three days of them leaving our premise
  • Not notifying us of anything Genetic within two years of leaving our premise or having a previous kitten replacement provided to you for a different reason, we only offer one replacement kitten per family

We do not cover for any allergies not reported within three days and if a kitten is returned within three days for allergies, the deposit is withheld.
