Details: Petland Puppy Dauschund - diagnosed with LUXATING PATELLAS when it arrived at the store! Store is selling him anyway, telling customers it was merely a "click" in the knee and the dog would grow out of it. Also told customer that this was caused by being in cramped kennel in the store. The dog was only 14 weeks of age when we visited and arrived and was diagnosed when they purchased it from the breeder/broker.

Details: Zeus isn't a puppy anymore, but I am still interested in any information you can give me. When I first brought Zeus home, his ears were badly infested with ear mites. It took much longer than one month for him to be mite free-more like 3-4 months-even with consistent cleaning and application of ear meds. They filled with thick, black residue daily. Once he was mite-free, he had frequent yeast infections in both ears. He was treated for tapeworms around 2 months old. Zeus suffers from both food and skin allergies, but changing his diet improved these issues. His skin and coat currently display signs consistent with color mutant alopecia(in early stage). He is otherwise healthy.
