    Default Puppy sick

    Hey guys new to this forum. I recently got a 6 week puppy this weekend, took him to get shots & was told his breathing was congested. They told us he has pneumonia & we left him for treatment. Just seeing if any of you have gone through this & how the pups are doing?

    Don't say that your puppy was only 6 weeks old when you got him? Puppys should be with their mothers until 8 weeks. Absolute minimum is 7 weeks. A week is a long time in a puppys life.

    I agree 6 weeks is far too young to be taken from his mommy and littermates!!! But, seriously hoping that he is going to be okay. Oh, and by the way, welcome to the forum and when your baby comes home, please post lots and lots of pictures. We love pictures here

    Welcome to the site -- be sure to post some pictures and bully hags and prayers that your baby gets well soon.

    Oh I so hope the 6 is a typo, way too young to be pulled away from the mommy.

    Welcome to the site, this is a perfect place for all bully pawrents. there is a breeder here in town who almost always has a complaint about his puppies have upper respiratory infections which can progress to Pneumonia. Good luck with you little one. Hopefully you caught it early.

    Please keep us posted. My concern is not only the age but that you have had him less than a week. Have you contacted the breeder about vet bills? Most have congenital clauses for reimbursements, however if you can prove he was sick before you purchased him, the breeder might help. Good luck.

    Always with me

    Hello and welcome, I agree that puppies should stay longer with their mothers but,THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT. The breeder should have known better both about the age and pneumonia. I just want to make it clear that you are not being blamed .I am glad you are with us and hope that your dear puppy get's better very soon. Please keep us updated and feel free to look around an join in any conversation you like.

    Excellent point. I re-read my post and it does read that way. I apologize, this is really as @dozersmama states, directed to the breeder.

    Hi there. If you do a search on the topic, you'll find a few of the members here have gone through it with success with their puppies. All have left their babies in the hospital with the doctor, but I remember one particular pup who's breeder ended up taking her home and made great progress and healed very well. A lot better than when she stayed at the vet's.

    I'll do a search and will let you know who that is.

    Praying that your baby will be ok.
