I am sorry your puppy still is not well. Can you tell us where you are located? Did the breeder ever explain what the mix up was with the pet insurance?

But here's the thing. If your breeder really is as good as you say, she will want to know this, she will be upset that one of her puppies is so ill, and she will offer to compensate for the lack of insurance, She might even ask you if you want to return the puppy to her (which I'm sure you don't).

Here's another thing - CKC registered does not mean clearances were done. You may have already figured this out. One of the experienced breeders here can advise on how to check if clearances were done on the parents.

I really, really think you should contact the breeder. To tell her - but also to find out if any of the other puppies, or the mother, have been ill.

Please let us know what happens...
I have been in contact with her everyday up until last week when she admitted to screwing up. I just haven't been able to send anything that's not an attack. I have got one in drafts but am waiting to see how she makes out tonight , sigh. She is super tired this sucks

What if you try to frame all your concerns in "I" statements:

I wanted to go over again what we discussed when I picked up my puppy.
I understood that my puppy would be covered by pet insurance from the time I picked him up. I had planned on investigating pet insurance on my own, but since I was assured my puppy was covered by a good insurance plan, I stopped looking. My vet agreed that the insurance plan that you provided as a part of registering him with the CKC was a good one.

As I have mentioned in previous emails, my puppy began having bloody diarrhea and needed to be seen by the vet on numerous occasions and is still not well.

I am very concerned about my puppy's health and the cost of the vet visits to restore him to good health. Without health insurance, the bills continue to mount up.

You get the idea. No blaming, accusing, attacking.

Thank you so much , this has been a great help. My email is similar but I agree there should be a lot of I messages to reinstate what was said.

I have put this off today as Carly is not herself at all tonight she has sleep all night and is acting very strange. She's been panting and just doesn't seem happy. I'm so worried for her. I put off the vet as I was just going to let her sleep it off but she ended up sleeping all night. If she has no change by morning we are back to the vet. Sigh. I just want her to feel better and e going through the regular puppy things. One question she has lost a tooth and looks like a few more are dangling could this be causing her mood change ?? I have so many worries is it bloat , obstruction, anemia, Coccidia , I am going crazy of course the Internet is not helping !!

Teething could be one of the problems. Have you checked her for dehydration? Look at her gums. Are they pink or grayish? If you press on them, does the color come back right away or take a few seconds? If you think she's dehydrated it would be good to get her to a vet very soon. She may need an IV.

So sorry this is all happening. I understand that you don't like confrontation and you want to have a good relationship with the breeder, but if you are going to be reimbursed for the costs, you will need to make some requests/demands. I'd add that if she is not stepping up and asking about the puppy and making suggestions, then she is not living up to her end of the breeder-buyer relationship. Most of the breeders on here are very proactive when they hear one of their puppies is ill.

How is your puppy doing? Sounds to me like she needs to get to the vet ASAP

Just got her some water and took her out in the snowy cold air for a pee and she seemed a bit better , she may have been really hot , she was laying on my bed and I had my husband come and check On Her and I guess our room was super warm which it does get. We just laid her down in her crate and she was happy to lay down and go to sleep. I am an hour away from the emergency vet and have children I can't leave alone so I was torn. She is still eating and drinking , no vomit , no problem peeing , huge poop at 6 am but nothing since. So I will call ASAP in the morning and get her in. If things develop over night I guess it's a family trip. I didn't want to put her in the crate but she has never had a problem in it and she will be much safer then being free to roam. The only thing I noticed mostly is she is very reluctant to go down stairs , goes very slow but if her tummy is hurting it may be uncomfortable. i just hope she is dealing with a tummy bug. thanks for the concern. Please don't think I am being cruel by not getting her to the emerg i do want the best for her , I am struggling as to where to go from here regarding her health, if she is well by morning i will still get her in and talk it over with the vet and try to get to the bottom of this what ever it takes.

Well she is back to her playful self again. Had two huge poops ( runny ) and has been so much better. I'm going to call the vet and check about putting her on bland again and change her food.

With the pain in her tummy, could she have eaten something she shouldn't have ingested?

If she keeps having the runny poops, fast her. No food for the next 24 hours with controlled amounts of water. Tomorrow morning feed boiled chicken/beef and rice. Feed this for several days until her stools firm up. Add a probiotic like Purina FortiFlora. This is non prescription but available thru the vet. I like Nature's Farmacy Dogzymes probiotics but you'd have to order it. I give this to my dog daily and highly recommend this for your current dilemma and everyday. Once her stools have been formed for 3 days start introducing 1/4 kibble. Try Purina Pro Plan sensitive stomach right now. Continue on that amount of kibble to ensure firm stool for a day or two and then add more kibble as she tolerates it. Call your vet and get a refill of the metronidazole or get some Tylan.
