I would also inform them in writing as well, with a cc copy sent to the corporate office, more than one copy actually. Also include all the breeder info and diagnosis info. They will probably just offer you a new puppy. But maybe it would apply pressure on them to stop buying from that mill b/c they would have in writing that that mill produces sick dogs, especially if it's known that her disease is inherited. Maybe I'm optimistic. But paper trails are good.

I'm so glad you joined the forum. You will get tons of help here. Your little one is in my prayers! I'm so glad you at least have a diagnosis so she can get the help she needs to get better!

Great! I am pretty good at tracking down puppy mills, sometimes even inspection reports.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Bianca, i will be keeping her in my prayers. Pam (Pammy4501) a member here is very knowledgeable about GME/NME and she can answer most any questions you might have, just send her a private message.

I feel so sorry for all of the puppies there. I know they need and deserve good homes but I don't know if I could ever do it again. I'll have to look at all the papers from when we purchased her to see what they say. I'm sure they won't do anything but say they're sorry and that they can't do anything about it. It makes me very angry to think about it.

We live in Columbus, Ohio. We took her to Med Vet. I read up on her neurologist - he has a lot of background in dealing with these types of conditions. I appreciate everyone's help, support, and suggestions!
Sarah - please promise me in the future that you will never buy a puppy from a pet store again. I know that a recent member got upset with us when we say that, but we're trying to prevent heartache. Any dog can get sick, but ones from puppy mills, and that's what every single pet store carries, are more likely too because they don't care about the breeding just the money. If people didn't buy puppies from pet stores all the puppy mills would go out of business and that's our hope, someday. Rescue or a reputable show breeder is the only way to go.
You've been terrific with Bianca - following your mommy instincts and getting her the help she needs despite what her vet said. With your neurologist's help, medications and your love and care I'm hoping that she has a long, life. I know with you as her mom, she'll have a happy, loved one.

RIP sweet Dolcina.

We have lost too many here on SM to GME/NME. I pray the U of GA finds a genetic marker for this horrible disease soon.
