Hello, I recently (7 days ago, sunday, May 11) purchased a puppy. I took him for a checkup which was mandatory according to the contract with the breeders and he was clean but he got sick soon after and we brought him back and he was diagnosed with Parvo (they don't check for this in puppy checkups). This was 4-5 days after purchase but Parvo can not show up until at least 6 days so according to the vet it is impossible for him to have contracted it while with us so it must be from the breeders. They are adamant that they are not at fault but the issue is that we had to bring the dog to the hospital and had to leave him in for treatment or he would have almost certainly died. This led to over $1000 in hospital bills and climbing (and its only been 2 days). I want to know whether we can take the breeders to court for the medical fees if they refuse to accept responsibility? Thank you.
