Pekingese Breeder / Laurie Wood
I beg you to get a 3 month health warranty before buying one of her babies. We bought one from her on Jan.7, 2012. On Jan 10, 2012, we took her to the vet for what we thought was a cold. In her short 74 days of life, each time we contacted Laurie Wood about the problem, her response was always the same. It was our fault. Something we did. After putting this baby through hell, we ended up having to put her down. I felt like a murderer. We had taken her to 5...five, different vets trying to make our baby well. After a tracheotomy, the doctors discovered that her trachea was damaged beyond repair. As she grew, so did the scar tissue. About an inch of her trachea did not have quite 2 millimeters of open airway . She was slowly suffocating. The damage was there when we got her, proof shown in her first x-ray. One of several that was taken of her. They first thought it was a growth that was closing down on her trachea because each week, we had her in for an xray to see if different antibiotics were working & you could see her trachea getting non-existent. Not until she went into surgery did they discover there was nothing that could be done. Had it been a prolapsed trachea, that could have been dealt with. It was a horrible memory I will have to live with the rest of my life but I also have the memory of the love & kisses she gave us while alive. I beg you to make her give you a WRITTEN & SIGNED 3 month health guarantee. Maybe this way you won't be paying a vet bill for the next two years .
