Diseases and Illnesses Coprophagia, Campy, Giardia, also needed pro-biotics as her digestive system was completly out of whack and didn't have any good bacteria in her system. She is also was way behind in development and at 4 months had no teeth. Not even her baby teeth had started to grow. As of today, she has still not gotten all of her teeth. 
When illness begin end I took her to MY vet the day after I bought her and found out about all her illnesses. I did not trust the vet they use, as I am sure she would have come back with a clean bill of health, whether she was sick or not. The coprophagia has not ended and she is 8 months old. The bacteria cleared up in about 2 weeks. The giardia and Campy took an entire month to be out of her system.
