Sorry this is so long! I'm venting!!
When I picked Rocky up 6+ weeks ago, I took him to the vet for his new puppy check up. He had ear mites! Not just a few ear mites, but a lot of ear mites.
The vets office cleaned his ears and put him on Revolution which is an ear mite medicine for cats. Applied like Advantage or Frontline. Per my Vet there isn't an ear mite medication for dogs because it is so rare?
I notified my breeder immediately, assuming they would want to know so they could have their dogs checked. I heard nothing back! In fact, they haven't replied to my last several e-mails. Transaction complete!
Rockys ears are not clearing up. So, today they used a stronger medication. We weren't home from the vets office 10 minutes and I could tell he was having a reaction. Back to the vets office we went and he's still there!
I e-mailed my breeder again, this time I was a little more blunt. I received back a very defensive
reply & an offer to pay the vet bills. I don't know, maybe I'm crazy, but a $2,000 puppy shouldn't come complete with ear mites!
What do you think? Has this happened to any of you?
