Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
You should never buy a puppy with a known health problem unless you first see the vet with the dog to assess his health.
If the breeder will not allow you to do this, you should at least get the dog with the knowledge that you can return the dog if you need to do so.
If the breeder is a reputable breeder, this should not be a problem.
If the breeder refuses, do not get the dog.
Have a complete health exam performed as soon as you are able. Eye problems are often permanent.
Let me know if you still have questions.
Definitely. I would request that she take the dog to the specialist and that she provide notes from the vet that detail the care that will be needed for the lifetime of the dog.
I would not enter into any purchase agreement until you see this information.
I also would expect to pay a greatly reduced rate for the dog.
