Diseases and Illnesses I purchased my puppy on 1/13/2012 she was approx 9 weeks old and weighed 1.9lbs. She was a happy go lucky, sweet, energenic puppy when I first saw her at the pet store on 1/10/2012. I fell in love right away. So on 1/13/2012 in the morning I went and bought her. When she came home that day she was exactly like she was the day that I first saw her. However the next morning 1/14/2012 she couldnt keep anything down and was vomiting everything she ate and drank. I was afraid she was getting hypoglycemic by that afternoon and gave her a little sugar and went to the store and bought her puppy milk and a bottle. This also would not stay down. She was still vomiting and getting sicker by the minute. So that evening she was to the point she wouldnt walk. I took her into the vet at 9:00pm on 1/14/2012. After the vet examined her and did a test it came back positive for parvo and she passed away. Her name was Nevaeh Sky in which Nevaeh is just spelled backwards for Heaven. I was happy she did not die alone in a pet store and that she was given a name and already very much loved. I am heart broken!!!
