i bought a yorkie puppy from a breeder and not only having her she got sick and died and i did not have health guarnteed on her. what do i do?
i bought my yorkie from a breeder and then having her for only 5 days she got sick with hypogycemia. my boyfriend and i took her to the clinic and doctor said she had low blood sugar and her body temperature was low. so the doctor keep her and had to put her on an incubator... shortly after that she was doing a little better so she came home then late that night we was back to being really weak didn't eat and was vomiting so then we took her to the emergency room and tested her again and so they didn't know what was causing the vomiting... so we couldn't afford keeping her at the emergency room so they gave us take home care to do at home... she had to be monitored every minute. so they gave us medications to see if she would get better... hours later we had to take her back.. so when we got back to the ER they had to monitor her and told us to keep her at the ER so after discussion the vet bills half hour later the doctor came and told me that she didn't make it even though if they had to do CPR she wouldn't pull through because she was too little....
so i called the breeder the next day and told them about the puppy and they said they couldn't do refund but would give us another puppy with health guaranteed and registered pup. but we spend about almost 900 hundred on her. what do i do?
I'm so sorry to hear about what happened with your little puppy, it must have been heartbreaking for you, not to mention financially stressful.
Unfortunately these things do happen sometimes, and with such tiny pups as Chihuahuas and Yorkies, some conditions can be difficult to treat. If you didn't have a health guarantee/contract on this puppy, then I'm afraid there's nothing you can do to force the breeder to help with the cost of her treatment.
However, the fact that she's offered you a replacement puppy WITH a health guarantee is promising. Legally, she didn't have to do that. Although a replacement pup is fair (and even WITH a health contract, many breeders offer replacement pups rather than refunds), I would consider this carefully, and try to get a veterinary health certificate on another puppy before you agree to purchase it.
Also, take it to your own vet within 24 hours of receiving it to make sure it's healthy. Many breeder contracts will provide a refund if you have proof of it being sick or having a hereditary health condition within 24 hours of receiving it.
Puppies can be expensive I'm afraid, and you were very unlucky with your little girl. Do make sure you think things through before making any decision now. I wish you the best of luck whatever you decide to do.
