I recently learned that my 1yo male has hypothyroidism after taking him to the vet for hair loss, primarily on both sides of his ribs and further back. I contacted my breeder who indicated that it was probably an immune disorder or food allergy and that with a food change the problem would clear up or we would simply need to medicate for the rest of his life. I'm wondering if the breeder should take more responsibility, offer some type of refund or ?? Help! Max

A good breeder would have offered to replace the pup or refund your money, but I wouldn't want a replacement pup out of the same parents.
