Dan Kotowski has proposed a "puppy lemon law" that would hold pet retailers responsible for sick pets or those with congenital defects. The bill calls for retailers to reimburse owners for the cost of the pet or replace the animal, as well as cover veterinary bills up to twice the pet's cost, if an animal becomes ill or dies within 21 days or is found to have a congenital defect within a year.
