Fourteen Day Parvo Coverage- Please note that many breeders nowadays do not waranty for Parvo at all. Read their contracts and see for yourself. We use Neopar so a puppy from us should not contract Parvo. Blood tests and fecal test for Parvo are not conclusive. Veterinariasn often label any vomiting or dipareeha signs as "Parvo" so Seller requires that Buyer has there Vet do A SPECIFIC TEST to rule out Giardia, Campylobactor, Ecoli and Salmonella. These are illnesses that can mimic Parvo. A FECAL GLASS SLIDE TEST must be submitted by your Vet to a lab. If this test comes back negative then the breeder would accept a Parvo diagnosis.

1. Buyer must notify breeder within a few hours of puppy being ill.
2. The required Vet visit and office fecal was done within 48 hours of buyer taking possession.
