Do Monty’s Mutts receive veterinary care?
Monty’s Mutts works with a licensed veterinarian to ensure that all dogs are medically cleared for travel and/or adoption. If a dog has a known medical condition/disease(s), Monty’s Mutts policy is to make the adopter entirely aware prior to adoption. With any animal, it is impossible to foresee future medical conditions that may develop; therefore, Monty’s Mutts does not guarantee that health issues will not arise in the future. Date of births for the animals is an approximation based on a veterinary examination.
