    I've always wanted an EB and made the decision to get one about 2 weeks after loosing my last Rottweiler to Cancer I bought Emma Saturday July 6th @ 9 1/2 weeks old.
    Sunday (7th) she was acting really laid back I thought it was odd but I had been told they are a laid back breed.
    Monday (8th) she acted depressed but was eating, drinking and playing I thought it may have been the move to a new home.
    Tuesday (9th) Something was deff wrong not eating a lot more depressed & a loose stool (I took a sample) so I took her to my vet. She was put on an antibiotic & SD i/d food (stool sample showed a bit more than normal Bacteria)
    Wednesday (10th) Things had gone downhill FAST I rushed her to my vet and they did a Parvo test......... STRONGLY POSiTIVE In all my life of dogs Ive never experienced this nor do I EVER want to again. It had to have been the most heart wrenching thing I had ever seen. 2 1/2 weeks after loosing my BFF Rotti I may just loose the sweetest puppy I've met. My vet informed me that it was going to get wayyyyyy worse. I opted to care for her at home I have the knowledge of being up all night with pups as well as Sub Q fluids, shots. My Vet also came out twice a day Bless her heart she's the best!!!!!
    Wednesday afternoon to Thursday Vomiting started. By Friday morning things were looking bleak my vet said to prepare myself she didn't think Emma would make it. She barely raised her head when I'd speak to her. I cried all day long had been in contact with the breeder who felt horrible and actually wanted me to bring her back so they could get her through this at their expense but I couldn't bring myself to do it I was invested and bonded. By 5:30 pm watching her go down hill I had thought maybe I should let the Breeder get her through this. 2 Weeks earlier I had watched my Rottweiler die could I handle another I just couldn't think clearly after being up 2 days. My vet was coming out at about 6-6:30 I told the breeder I would call them after she came and checked on Emma. In the 45 min before my vet came I prayed the hardest I have prayed in a long time PLEASE help her through this I can watch her die I even said give it to me I'll fight it for her anything just let her live.
    My vet came at 6:15 we cried we talked and I told her my thoughts she said well let me take a look at her. I opened the crate to reach in and pick her up cause she literally had not stood up unless she had to potty, she came out of there like a shooting star ran to my vet excited hyper playing grabbed a ball crazy normal puppy stuff. That my friends IMHO was a Miracle
    So in the days and weeks to follow we have had on again off again runny stools switching from the SD i/d to SLOWLY switching back to her food. maybe 2 days on her food alone no i/d the stool goes right back to runny. I think it is her food, she came to us on Royal Canin BD she gets no treats or table food I always use a dogs food for treats and it's worked well. I just bought Fromm today so once her stools are normal I'll mix that slowly with the i/d until she's on Fromm only.

    We have also had a run in with cherry eye I've been told by several people take it out and I cringe.... So does my vet.....

    We've also run into the tail pocket issue due to my own ignorance not getting it dry enough I guess.

    I wouldn't give Emma up for anything in this world and in a way I'm thankfully it hasn't been easy I find when I have hard lessons I learn a lot faster LOL

    So we'll see what the Fromms does for Emma, I'm stocking up on a lot of the grooming stuff that's talked about on here. How do you get their tail pockets dry after a bath? Emma's is very hard to get your finger in so it's tight.
    Thank you all so much for making us feel so welcome any help advise given would be greatly Appreciated

    Someone on here said use Gold Bond medicated powder and use one of those baby sucky balls to squirt it up in there.

    Wow..JUST WOW! Parvo is such a death sentence..even for big dogs, it says volumes for how wonderfully you cared for Emma. Bravo to you and what a great Vet you have too! We lost a wonderful Rottie to Bone cancer a few years ago. I know exactly how you felt, watching a wonderful precious friend leave. Thank goodness, Emma is a strong girl!
