New Pet with Microphthalmia | Simply Labradors

Hello all,
I am new to this website and am hoping for some recommendation. Two weeks in the past, we picked up 2 lab puppies that we had been ready a 12 months for. They have been 8 weeks outdated on the time. One pet was simply high-quality – the opposite appeared to have one thing very improper with one eye. We have been informed by the breeder that this was because of tough play between the pups and will clear itself up. I had some bells and whistles going off and I am an AHT so undoubtedly knew higher !!!! I ought to have refused the pet at the moment….. in fact I let my emotion rule my head.
Anyhow, flash ahead 2 weeks. We have now achieved a tear stain take a look at with our vet and there’s a non-functioning tear duct in the correct eye. The left eye seems to have Microphthalmia. The best ear is oddly formed – with what seems like a chunk out of it and the pet’s again legs appear very bowed to me. I’ve hooked up an image of his eyes. He’s in any other case fairly candy and clever however considerably aloof.
The breeder will take the pet again and provides us a full refund. My husband has additionally requested a few low cost however I am unsure something however ‘free’ can be sufficient of a reduction for me. If I believed the pet would find yourself with a very good residence I’d really feel higher about returning him however I do know that along with his defiiciencies, the breeder is more likely to have him euthanized.
I am having a really moral dilemma about this determination. My very own vet has really helpful that full analysis wouldn’t be attainable and not using a go to to an Opthamologist however we’re 1100 km away from one and I am simply not keen to place any more cash than I have already got into this pet if I am unsure we will maintain him. Primarily based on full images and veterinary medical findings, I’ve had 3 vets advocate he return however as soon as once more my feelings are getting in the best way of a choice.
If anybody has been by one thing like this and has some recommendation or private anecdotes to supply, I might certain be grateful.
