KeenPomeranians.com / Sell sick puppies

1 United States Review updated:

I bought a puppy from a breeder in Mississippi and I live in California. The puppy was very sick when he arrived and I tried feeding him and giving him water constantly. I took him to the vet within 24 hours and he had a strong case of parvo. The "breeder" is in complete denial and refuses to negotiate at all. I sent her the vet papers and she still will not refund my money, nor will she replace the puppy. This is a warning to all consumers who are looking for a puppy and want a reputable breeder. DO NOT BUY ANY DOGS FROM CAROL KEEN AT KEEN POMERANIANS!

    Hi Cindy, i see you changed your log on.. since you did, you may not have seen my comments to your other post.. so i will reprint it here.

    you are missing the point here! I will lay it out really simple so you can follow


    1) NO animal can be shipped from MS to Calif without a Health Certificate. its the LAW!

    2) Parvo does not incubate within 24 hrs! not possible.

    3) Parvo symptoms have to be present for any dog to test positive to Parvo.

    quote:
    Some toy breeds (such as Chihuahuas, Yorkshire Terriers, Maltese, Toy Poodles and Pomeranian) are prone to hypoglycemia due to a metabolic disorder. If you have a toy breed dog, it is better to feed her 3 small meals a day to avoid hypoglycemia.

    Puppies, especially toy breed puppies less than 5 months of age, are predisposed to developing hypoglycemia because they are less able to store and mobilize glucose. Also, toy breed puppies have more brain mass per body weight compared to other breeds and therefore need more glucose for brain function.
    In puppies, certain situations can bring on a hypoglycemic attack. For example, when the puppy misses a meal, becomes chilled, or is suffering from exhaustion, or anxiety.

    Symptoms of Hypoglycemia in Dogs

    Dogs with extremely low blood glucose usually show the following signs:
    Lethargy and weakness
    Confusion and disorientation
    Restlessness and agitation
    Muscle incoordination
    Nervousness
    Trembling
    Seizures
    In severe cases, the dog may become unconscious and sometimes die.

    The severity of the symptoms depends on the level of the blood glucose and how fast the blood glucose level drops. If left untreated, a dog showing mild symptoms of hypoglycemia can deteriorate rapidly. Immediate veterinary treatment is essential - dogs suffering from prolonged hypoglycemia or repeated occurrences of the condition can have permanent damage to their brains.

    thats just a FEW links showing that hypoglycemia is common in puppies of small and toy breeds.

    ya missed the boat on this one.. esp when you failed to bring said documentation (the sugar crash contract) with you to either vet. its obvious they are not familiar with toy breeds.

    Did you even bother to inform either DVM that the puppy had just been FLOWN 1500 miles???
