In Illinois, a so-called 'puppy lemon law' has passed the Senate.
The measure would protect consumers who buy a dog or cat at a pet store and then find out that the animal is seriously ill.
The bill now goes to the Illinois house. The legislation would allow buyers to get a replacement or a full refund if the animal dies within 21 days of the purchase.
