    Default Can anyone help me please?

    Hi everyone
    I am thinking of buying a British bulldog from a family who have two puppies.
    According to the breeder their family own the parent dogs (pictures seen) and they have two remaining puppies. The puppies had cherry eye which has apparently been operated on and said the will show me vet papers. I'm not experienced in such things so first question 1. Is it possible to forge vet papers and would it seem rude to ring said vets up and confirm?
    How do I attach a photo of said puppy?
    Thank you in advance

    Hi @Dougthebull, welcome to EBN

    You should definitely call the vet and confirm, not rude at all. You must look after yourself as there are tons of scams out there. Never ever send money without seeing the puppy and its mother in person, it's very common with frauds

    To attach a photo you click on the third icon from the right when in the reply field. It looks like a square with a tree in, greenish color.

    You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.

    I just want to be fully aware of what I'm buying, I know cherry eye is fairly common I jut want to have all grounds covered and get the best advice possible. They are not selling the puppy for thousands as he is not kc registered (doesn't bother me as I'm not interested in breeding or showing )

    You should phone the vet to confirm, it's not rude and you need to protect yourself, it's hard to judge by photos, someone we know has a bulldog who had cherry eye and they operated and made a pocket for it a couple of days later it came out so he had to be operated again, his eyes were really red at the bottom for a while, they are now fine and only go red when he is tired, there is so much to consider, with this it can also cause dry eye where they are on eye drops for the rest of their life, I would read about cherry eye on the Internet and defo confirm with their vet!

    not always, they can go back in or be massaged back in place.

    certainly call the vet, as you are going to want to confirm that the pup is up to date on his puppy shots also. Cherry eye can be massaged back into place but if they are telling you they have proof of surgery, they probably had it repaired. Good luck with the new baby, how old is he?

    That's true because I massaged FTSE back in for a while too before it stayed out permanently

    Hi Doug, I totally agree with the others, it is not rude to want to confirm the health of the puppy with the vet.
    Most breeders will protect themselves by asking that you have the vet check out a puppy within a certain time frame for their warranty to be valid. When I bought Dozer and Blossom, I got a contract from the breeder and I had 4 days to take them to a vet and have them checked out for any health issues and genetic defects. If a breeder can ask for this, then it's acceptable for you to also ask questions and have the vet give you details about the pup, so that you are guaranteed that you are getting a healthy puppy. How old are the pups? They must be older to have had cherry eye surgery already.
    My gemale Blossom developed cherry eye when she was 5 months old, and I had it repaired when she was 7 months old, at the same time as I had her spayed.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
