Puppy Reality Series by Dr. Ray – Part 5

Posted April 2, 2014

#5 Puppies get sick and it’s nobody’s fault

There are diseases that can afflict the best bred puppy, living in the cleanest environment. It seems to surprise most families, because most are extremely conscientious, follow our advice, and feel they deserve a trouble free puppy.

Life’s not fair. Some of the diseases that can affect ANY puppy are demodecosis, juvenile cellulitis, panosteitis, and accidental ingestions. Medical costs for these conditions range from a few hundred dollars to many thousands for life-saving surgery.

Reality point: Please be prepared, understand the pet insurance options, and don’t feel guilty if your puppy gets sick…. it’s (probably) not your fault!
