I'm confused now. I thought the shunt was just confirmed today by the CT?

Without a diagnosis and medical reports (or in the event of death, a necropsy), a breeder cannot honor a health guarantee. Please have your vet send the CT results directly to your breeder. Hopefully that will open up a discussion between the two of you about how best to handle Becky's condition.

Surgery is not the only option for shunts. Dr. Sharon Center at Cornell has kept many dogs in good health with diet and medication. I highly recommend having your vet contact Dr. Center and try out her protocol first.

Anna, just getting the update. So sorry about the diagnosis but at least now the appropriate treatment can begin. Prayers are with you and Becky.

Oh Anna,
What a heartless person to suggest that you would trade poor sweet sick little Becky in for another dog and just leave her. How can she not understand the bond we have with these little ones?
I can understand that you wouldn't want to deal with this horrible person again, and just focus on helping Becky to get well.

I'm so sorry about Becky's diagnosis

I do agree with the others that you need to call Becky's breeder and let her know about the definite diagnosis. Try to not be confrontational, if she is a reputable breeder, she did not deliberately sell you a dog with medical issues and you are more likely to get a positive response if you give the facts matter of factly without being accusatory, although I know that you are incredibly upset over this and I definitely do not blame you.

Contract wise, she probably has a point that the contract states a replacement pup in the event of (fatal) hereditary disease so any reimbursement she might give is because she stands by her dogs and wants to do the 'right' thing. Hopefully she will want to do the right thing!

please let us know how it goes!

Hello Stacey ,

How are you ? just before anything congrats on your beautiful dogs

I did e -mail one of the breeders Becky dad comes from top breeder that my breeder had purchased , she is much nicer and easier to talk to ... She is telling me that this is a freak of nature cannot be in her lines has been breeding for 25 years never had a shunt puppy , and that my breeder also never had a shunt puppy , so she proceeded to tell me that maybe the vets are after my money and to be careful that its a real diagnostic , are you kidding me they have no idea how sick this puppy has been since i got her !!!! vets all i dealt with yesterday were specialist ACVS qualified internal medicine , radiologist was ACVS also Ct Scan with angio gram and the surgeon i was refered to is also ACVS , how would these people all be conspiring to lie about diagnostic !!!!!! Anyhow after back and forth e-mails she did call my breeder they are friends and they agreed if indeed Becky has a shunt after surgery with a letter from surgeon confirming this surgery they would rembourse me what i paid for her and if she dies during surgery only with autopsy ..........so i paid 1800 $$$ for Becky i pray they honor their word and reimburse me atleast that for her surgery , it would cost 3500 but that is half of what i need do you think its a fair deal ????

I think they are not the breeders that they should be, but I think you have little choice but to accept the $1800. Definetly send an email to them so that you have record of their response showing the agreement.

Anna, offering to refund your purchase price is a very fair deal. Even the toughest "puppy lemon laws" in the US require breeders to only reimburse owners for vet bills up to the cost of the puppy.

Did you read JMM's post? She told you to contact Dr. Center and follow her protocol. Dr. Center has had great success with managing shunt dogs without surgery.
