MHGPC’s Policy

 

Health Guarantee

Health is guaranteed prior to shipping, delivery or pickup at my home.  MHGPC’s  guarantees each cavy to be represented healthy prior to shipping, delivery or purchase. We will not ship or sell a cavy if it known to be sick.  If we find that the cavy becomes sick while in our care we will take proper care of them and bring them to the Vet at our cost. If the cavy has died while in our care you will receive an exchange at which you will be able to select a new cavy of comparable quality upon availability.   We will provide a limited warranty guarantee for cavies health for the first 72 hours(3 days) of the date of Shipping/Delivery/Pickup.  The cavies are ready for their new homes at around 4-6 weeks old.  By that time they have developed a competent immune system, are eating on their own and have developed social skills.  

 

Shipping/Delivery/Pickup

We will provide a limited warranty guarantee for cavies health for the first 72 hours(3 days) of the date of shipping/Delivery/Pickup, excluding weekends and holidays, at the purchaser’s expense.   In this time you should get a health check to confirm health at your veterinarian. You must notify us of any claims under the warranty immediately.  Please do keep in mind that most veterinarians have never even seen a hairless guinea pig, much less treated one. Most veterinarians are uneducated about this breed. If the veterinarian finds the cavy to have a life-threatening illness, he / she should write and sign a short note on his / her letterhead stationary explaining his / her findings. The cavy may be returned to us within seven days for an exchange of a new cavy of comparable quality upon availability. The shipping and insurance costs are at the responsibility of the purchaser.  If there is no replacement available at the time of return, we will have up to one year to provide a cavy of comparable quality. The cavies cannot be returned for compensation after the guaranteed period has expired and or if the cavy has been exposed to other cavies and or another animal. We will not honor any health guarantee if the cavy dies of a virus from contact with another animal not bred/owned by us. It is highly recommended that the cavies be quarantined during that 72-hour(3 day) limited warranty period. Under NO circumstances are the cavies allowed to be “destroyed” without prior notification of our caviary.

 

We are not responsible for illness, injury, or death caused by or during the shipping transition. However, we have never lost any guinea pigs that were shipped via airlines. They take great care of the cavies during the whole shipping process. We do prefer that you come in person to pick up cavies if it is at all possible.

 

We will still guarantee the cavies health for a full 30 days but it must be confirmed/proved that the diagnosis/illness/death was caused by something in our caviary.  The purchaser must also provide pictures as proof of the deceased cavies as well.   The veterinarian should write and sign a short note on his / her letterhead stationary explaining his / her findings. This must be confirmed and proven by a competent knowledgeable guinea pig exotics veterinarian in writing as proof within 30 days of the date of purchase/shipping.  If the cavy should be diagnosed within a year of the date of purchase due to a hereditary or congenital defect, we will replace the cavy of equal or better quality at no cost to the purchaser, excluding any shipping/insurance charges. We must receive proof of the defect in the form of a complete autopsy and or necropsy report completed by a licensed veterinarian and performed at the purchaser’s expense.  Your vet should be a competent and knowledgeable guinea pig exotics veterinarian.  We will make every effort and attempt to replace the cavy with another cavy of equal or better quality, color, and marking within a timely manner. We reserve the right to reserve a cash refund.   

 

Reserved

After you have selected your cavy we will require that you put down a $50 deposit to be placed on each of your reserved cavies which goes towards the purchase price of them.  After we have received your deposit we will hold your reserved cavies prior to shipping, delivery or pick up. 

 

Change of Mind

If you decide that you don’t want the cavies that you have reserved you might be entitled to a refund depending on the circumstance.  The deposit is non refundable, but it can be applied toward another cavy in the future.  

 

Payment

We are no longer accepting PayPal payments. We accept cash, bank money orders, bank certified checks, Western Union, wire bank transfer or postal money orders.  Please E-mail us before making a deposit or payment to confirm that the cavy is still available.  Once your deposit and or payment have cleared we will hold your reserved cavies for you until shipping, pickup or delivery.  Payment must clear prior to shipping, delivery or pickup.  Full payment must be received 1 week prior to shipping.
