We had an unfortunate even this past week. My wife and decided to buy a female puppy this fall. Long story short, we found out our little boy Astro's parents where having their last litter. Luckily 1 girl was born and was to be ours! Finally last Wednesday the breeder was ready to let her go and took all the puppies to the vet earlier that day and we came to pick her up that evening. She wasn't eating Thursday and we assumed she was just nervous and acclimating to the changes. But we took her to the vet anyways. She was released from her mom and litter too soon and I had been feeling all that time. She was hypoglycemic, enimic and acting disoriented. Thursday night and Friday we cared for her and finally Saturday morning, being all emotional and concerned she went back to the vets. She spent nearly all day there with an IV for dehyrdation and the same issues she was having before and diharea. The vet had a hunch she had a liver shunt that wouldn't allow her liver to filter toxins. I stayed up with her all night feeding her the formula, karo syrup on her gums and water constantly, for 3 hours this seemed to be doing the trick and she was acting better. But as nature would have it she took a turn for the worst and a few hours later at 4:25 Sunday morning she passed away. I know I only knew Goji for a few days but I am so heart broken she's gone. This time my wife and I know better and will make sure to find a better breeder that won't release puppies early.
