11. LIMITATION OF WARRANTY.   Any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness is limited to the 90-day duration of this written warranty.  Some states or provinces do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to Customer.  

 

12.  UPDATES/RENEWALS. VSA will provide updates on a minimum of a semi-annual basis.  We strongly encourage that you subscribe to these updates/renewals.  Researchers constantly discover new medicines, an/or better and safer ways and dosages to administer existing medicines. These updates/renewals will be provided to you on a CDRom and/or the VSA web site.  We stand behind the accuracy of our recommendations (Subject, of course, to the limitations expressed elsewhere, to the effect that we aren’t Veterinarians and it is up to the attending Vet to make the final decision on a case-by-case basis about the appropriateness of any medicines and dosage).  However, our “guaranty” of the accuracy is only applicable to those who have purchased the renewal package, and who had the renewal package at the time the medicine was prescribed.
