We’ve had such a bad year with distemper. It’s a horrible virus and hard to spot because all the symptoms could apply to other illnesses. Sadly it’s also terribly contagious and we’ve lost quite a few pups. The good news is that we’ve found a test that I think is very accurate. In fact I haven’t seen a false reading yet. They cost $25.00 a piece but it’s worth every penny. We’re now distemper free and have ordered 30 more tests to stay that way. Every new dog or puppy will be tested before joining our group.
Especially with our new tiny babes who are extra vulnerable.
There are seven pups in the litter, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh are they cute, they’ve opened their eyes and are starting to move around more. We can already see different personalities coming out. How fun is that.
