Arrival Story:
I received my little Taytor bug when she was barely 8 wks. She wasn't active, just wanted to be held, ALWAYS! I noticed she didn't have much of an appetite. Attributed that to new environment, but only for 2 days, then took her to vet. They also couldn't get her to eat. She had went from 1 lb. to .8 lb. I started force feeding and kept taking her to the vet. In this process, we found COCCIDIA. We started treatment for that, nausea, and I also did nutri-cal/pedialite/karo syrup every 1.5 hrs and an anti biotic 2x a day and an injection 3x a day for nausea. I did this for 3 days, to no avail. We had to rush her to the vet on an emergency run because she couldn't even lift her head, defecated on herself and wouldn't stop vomiting. The vet tried, but she just couldn't hang on. She died at only 7 tenths of a pound!!!All because of negligence on the "breeders" part. Taytor was born 1-28-06 and died on 4-8-06. I only had 9 days with my baby. I spent over $1,000 just trying to get her healthy. She was too tiny, and too sick before I even got her. I have since figured out that the "breeder" is a puppy mill. She wouldn't refund my money, but gave me another puppy, which also had coccidia (took her to the vet straight from getting her). I got her 4-11-06, on 6-10-06 (after spending a few more hundred to get her healthy), we finally have gone a full week without medicine and gotten a negative for coccidia. CELEBRATION TIME!!! I have learned a lot through the loss of my little Taytor. I have also gained a new friend, as I have also gotten another pup, Nibbler (which I will list). She has been a wonderful friend to lean on through the scam and the loss of Taytor. Please read up on Coccidia, once it has gone too far it is so sad to see your little one suffer and die in so much pain. They are so precious.

I would like to use this space to remind people to read up on COCCIDIA and never be too careful to have your animals tested for it. It is not expensive to have the test done. It is part of the fecal testing, just make sure to ask that they look for COCCIDIA!!! It is FATAL!!!
