Wickliffe, OH asked in Animal / Dog Law for Ohio

Q: I bought a puppy from a breeder and it came with a health guarantee as long as taken to very within 72 hours.

I took him to vet within 48 and he has a double yeast ear infection and intestinal parasites. I asked the seller to refund the vet fees and they said the contract says I'm responsible for vet fees. So then I asked to return the puppy for a full refund and they stated they will take the puppy back and only give me another puppy from the next litter which is states in the contract I signed. But however it stated the dog was up to date on vaccines which he wasn't and healthy which he isn't. We want to keep the puppy but I want some of my money back for these piling up very bills because of the sellers negligence. Is that possible?

A: It will depend on what the contract says. You should hire an attorney to review the contract and advise you of your rights. Good luck!
