Puppy Lemon Law



The House has approved a plan adding more protections for Illinois consumers who buy a dog or cat at a pet store and find out the pet is gravely ill.
 
The legislation allows buyers to be reimbursed for veterinary fees, get a replacement or a full refund if the animal dies within 21 days of purchase. It also allows them to return the animal within a year if it has a congenital or hereditary condition. Both require a veterinarian's written statement.
 
Opponents say the bill is too far-reaching.
 
Gov. Pat Quinn supports the law, but it won’t reach his desk until the Senate approves changes to the law.
