I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on this puppy, please? Regretfully, without my physically examining this pup and knowing which symptoms it exhibiting I'm at a loss to tell you why he's so ill. Did the two littermates show symptoms before dying? Did the ER perform any testing on this pup?
