You need to get a signed statement from your Vet, or whoever diagnosed the cancer. Present that to the store. I suspect the pet store is simply trying to circumvent their responsibility. Get a lawyer.


All dogs can get cancer. Sure, some breeds are more predisposed to certain types of cancer. However, there is not a breed of dog that is entirely immune to ever getting cancer. To say that Silkies cannot and do not get cancer is ridiculous.


I have had 5 Silky Terriers. The first one died of Pancreatic Cancer, the second one died of mouth and throat cancer, the third one died of a heart attack, the forth one died of diabetes, the fifth one has diabetes and is blind. I love the breed but it is very hard to go through what my wife and I have had to deal with.
