Brookeside Kennels-Brooke Sanders / hip displasia
I purchased a puppy from Brooke Sanders in August of 2009. This puppy was from her female Misha and Silvermine Kennels male Adam. My puppy Hudson had bloody and loose stools, he had to go to the vet and was diagnosed with Giarrdia which had to be treated. I did notify Brooke of this and she said she was sorry but the puppy was not sick when she had him at the vet.
Hudson's hips were x rayed at 6 months of age and he was found to have hip displasia. I contacted another buyer who had gotten a littermate and her puppy also had hip displasia. When I contacted Brooke about this problem she told me that another buyer in Alabama had informed her that his puppy's hips were bad. There were 7 puppies in this litter, they are now 10 months old and 3 for sure have hip displasia. I was told that her female Misha's hips were fair. The OFA does not have any thing that her Misha's hips were ever checked. This was Misha's 3rd litter all before age 2yrs.
Hudson is 10 months old and is on a joint suppliment and sometimes anti-inflammatories, he can not go up and down stairs or do any of the things that most puppies his age enjoy. If ou have purchased a puppy from this breeder and have problems you can contact me.
