I'm not sure exactly. If you don't have a health guarantee I don't think you'll get anything paid for, except maybe the option to return the puppy. Honestly, most health guarantees are good for genetic defects, and even then, they may not do much besides take back the puppy and give you your money back. I find it disturbing that this was super obvious to your vet and the breeder did not disclose this to you. Our puppy had the slightest heart murmur at 8 weeks. My vet barely heard it. So I believe my breeder wasn't hiding anything from me. We went back three weeks later for shots and it had disappeared. I would be on the phone ASAP to ask about the health guarantee. Most also want you to visit a vet within a few days of picking up the puppy as well. However, many of these guarantees mean they have health tested their breeding dogs, not that they'll pay for surgery.
