I am in the process buying a puppy online we have kept up communication. I just got a recent picture of her and I can see in the picture that she has some eye discharge. What is this? Should I be concerned? I will be picking her up in two weeks.
I'm not sure how much you can tell by online pics, but I would make sure that the pup was seen by a vet and if there was a problem for the breeder to get the meds needed. What type of pet is it? How old is it? There are some breeds that are prone to eye problems, but this could just be a cold or maybe a little conjunctivitis. Ask, best thing to do. Is the breeder reputable? If so, she will be more than happy to respect your questions and requests.
How long is the health guarantee for and does it include everything? Is there a written contract? Have you seen it? Have you mentioned it to her? Dachshunds are not a breed that are prone to eye problems, if you are noticing it then there may be a problem with the dog's eyes, and you should definitely mention it.
I felt nervous about buying a puppy online from the start but when I saw her picture I knew she was the one for me!!!! I have never met the lady or had any contact with besides email! This is my first puppy and I want to do everything right!! She is soooo cute!!! I will ask all those questions. Thanks sooo much for the info. I will keep you posted. Also just now is the first time I have seen the discharge.
