Question Just Curious...

Just curious on what every thinks....

Out of all of those who bought/adopted their Chis from a breeder, did they inform you about hypoglycemia toy breed pups can have?

Second, do you think it the breeds responsibility to make sure you know? Or do you think its the buyer/adopters place to research before buying/adopting?

The breeder did told us about hypoglycaemia. And I think that the breeder has the responsibility to tell you about so many things but I feel like if you really care about animals you would do your own research before buying/getting any animal

All of mine came with specific instructions and info about hypoglycemia. I think every breeder should inform the new owner of the signs and symptoms and what to do if it arises. Most breeders do send info about it, and discusses it with the new owner because its usually one of the things that the breeder will not place a guarantee on. It's the owners responsibility to know what to do. Without underlying health issues, it is treatable with prompt attention. So I would say its the responsibility of both breeder to inform, and owner to know how to treat it.

Hi! I can't remember if Lola's breeder told me about it or not, I don't think she did, but that was 4 years ago. However, Leo's breeder did and she even gave me a tube on nutrical and showed me how to give it to him.
I absolutely feel it is the breeders obligation to tell future owners about the risks associated with hypoglycemia otherwise we may have to learn the hard way, at the expense of the puppy

Jaxx's breeder did not inform us. I am not sure if it was because he was 20 weeks old so they were not concerned since Jaxx was a little older.
I do believe that it is the breeders responsibility but I also think that when bringing home a new puppy the owners should know as much as they can about the animal before they bring it home.

Agree.

Mine all came with instructions along with their contracts. One came with Nutrical and the breeder's websites were plastered with this and other information such as molera detail, care and feeding, weight chart and much more.

I'm like Zorana, we got Lulu so long ago I don't remember if we were told or not. I will say this, and I will sound like I am speaking out of both sides of my mouth. AFTER I got Lulu I came home and studied everything I could on Chihuahuas because she was a spur of the moment purchase, so I'm sure somewhere in that studying I crossed hypoglycemia, but I have said on here before that there are smart people that do not study things or know things because it does not cross their mind there is something they should know that they don't know. That has happened to me more than once with Lulu. Having said that, I definitely believe it is the breeders place to make the buyer aware of hypoglycemia because they are well aware of it and it's dangers.
