Daughter Kristie and Suzie ~ My daugher has always loved dogs and came by to see our new puppy Suzie the day after we adopted her from the animal shelter. She's a 6 month old Lab mix and wow, what a week! We noticed that Suzie had developed a cough when we adopted her that morning. Well, she quickly got soo much sicker and really fast...the last week has included two trips to the vet with an IV and strong antibiotics. At first she was given a diagnosis of kennel cough, but on the 2nd trip to the vet, they suspected the dreaded distemper and gave her a 50/50 chance of survival. We were pretty devastated, but this post does has a happy ending. Since she was treated yesterday morning, she has improved so much! Yesterday and today, she has mostly rested, but she seems to be getting well fast and she's eating good again and even getting playful too. Go Suzie pup, we're keeping our fingers crossed!
