    Regardless of whatever reasons I bought her, I did and now I am doing what is right by her. I did question the age of the pup hence why I asked the vet their opinion which I was satisfied with.
    As for the spewing up it was just her feed.

    Now an update on the pup. I wormed her Sunday (the following stool had a 2" tape worm in it), vaccinated her Monday (started vomiting that afternoon). She stopped eating Wednesday but continued to vomit and have the runs. Bought some electrolites from the vet so help rehydrate her. Back to the vet on Friday to have her tested for Parvo which came up negative but she was given glucose, water and charcoal. She continues to vomit throughout the day. Went out today and honestly expected to come home to a dead puppy. She was still alive, more energetic and definately improving. She is not out of the woods yet but Im keeing positive.

    The vet believes that because she was very wormy and being wormed followed by the vaccination may have caused the reactions that followed, but without further testing it is only a guess.

    Now I know some of you think buying from the markets is supporting the BYB and maybe it is. This is NOT a thread about that it IS however a thread about reactions to vaccinations and Id like to keep it that way. I am doing what is best for the pup and that is what is most important.

    It's too late now, but I would never vaccinate if I knew worms were present... I would have done the worming and rewormed a few days later... then in about a week vaccinate... making sure the pup doesnt leave your property in the mean time...its a risk, but then you've taken a risk at 7 weeks, really your pup should have had one vaccination and been wormed three times already, but as you can assume that wasnt done, just hold in there... feed small meals and lots of them, good quality feed... Id also add Vitamin C and Apple Cider Vinegar... the vit C via tablet and the ACV either add to food or via syringe straight into the mouth (prefered method) ... natural Yogurt will also help settle the tummy.... hope your girl feels better soon...

    p.s. personally I'd be looking for another vet also, they should have known not to vaccinate after finding worms the previous day, unless they didnt know... in which case... lesson learnt tell them everything.....

    I am almost certain that I told the vet about the worms, I know i told the assistant though. Im just glad she is looking better. She will be wormed again tomorrow along with my other 2 dogs.

    I wouldnt be worming her again until she is stronger, you may want to wait another day or so... if I read it correctly, you thought she was weak enough yesterday not to survive... sorry if I missunderstood...

    No you read it right, I didnt expect her to be alive when I got home yesterday either but she has taken a turn for the best.

    She is drinking/eating again and has alot more energy too. I have wormed her again this afernoon.

    sounds like she is on the mend.. glad to hear it... make sure you get her microchipped asap, as I guess the breeder didnt bother with that either...

    It sounds like you've done everything right,but it's so nerve wracking when they're little isn't it?

    It does sound like she's just had a bit of overload. Tapeworms can knock them about, as can vaccines when they're in less than perfect health. Staff rescue's idea of vitamin C and yoghurt sounds very good. Vit C is an immune system booster. Their baby immune systems can be knocked for six by vaccines.

    I'm glad she's being so well looked after now - don' forget photos as she grows!

    Gorgeous photos! OMG she is so tiny!

    Is it just the photos or does she have a bluish tone to her eyes?
