Chow bought from leeyapfei (kkdoggie) died of corona & parvo virus :(

Dear All, I would like to share a heartbreaking story of mine. I have purchase a female chow chow (PF8285) from Sam Lee Yap Fei ( www.kkdoggie.weebly.com) on 20/11/2009. Sam had many chow chows but we fell in love immediately with Coco. The petshop was’nt in the best hygiene & condition as it had some foul smell and you could tell some of the chow chow were sick. The sick chows weren’t segregated and was mixed together with other chows therefore encouraging the possibility of the sickness/virus spreading. 1 of the chows was so sick that he/she could’nt play (was sitting at one corner) and the rest of the chows were stepping on her/him. It was a very sad sight. We wanted to bring the sick chow back however we could only afford 1 chow at a time.

We notice that coco had diarrhea the day we bought her however Sam assure us it was the "rainy weather" that is causing the diarrhea. She was very active from the beginning however the diarrhea didn’t get better. On the third day, the diarrhea was bleeding fresh blood. We quickly took her to the vet and she was diagnosed with corona virus. Because we only had her for the 3rd day, the vet suggested that she already had the virus in her before we got her home and now is showing the symptom. We did notify Sam of the situation and he offered to take care of her however we are not comfortable with him taking care of our new pup as the vaccination card he has provided us did not came with a valid doctor’s endorsement. We did’nt want to return coco as a “product”. We gave all the care and medication our pup need but on the 7th day, our pup suddenly became very lethargic. Again, we quickly brought her to the vet (4th trip in the week) and had her hospitalized immediately. Sadly, she is diagnosed with a deadly virus, Parvo. Her chances of survival was only 50/50. Again, the vet advised that parvo virus incubates within and will only start shedding 7-10 days later suggesting that our pup has both corona and parvo virus when we brought her home. After 3 days of intensive care of the vet, our pup passed away on the 30/11/2009 3-4am in the morning. Sam was “sorry” for the passing of our pup but that was it. Period.

We loved our pup very much but it is very devastating to loose in just 10 days. Money spent on medication can be earned back but our dead pup cannot be revived. Nobody else should suffer the heartache we went through and hope that my story will enlighten animal lovers to purchase from ethical and clean pet shops. I wish no other animal had to share the same fate as our coco. We felt that we had been emotionally robbed by the passing of our dear coco. We still love her dearly and hope that she finds a better place next to god.

Re: [momothechow] Chow bought from leeyapfei (kkdoggie) died of corona & parvo virus :(

i'm so sorry to hear abt ur puppy... unfortunately, many many ppl still prefer to buy than adopt a pet... even pet shops that appear to be clean could still carry diseased puppies becoz more often than not, these puppies come from puppy mills/ backyard breeders... i hope ppl opt to adopt... if u must really really buy a pet, always buy 1 from a reputable breeder...

u can also report this unethical seller to spca ampang or the veterinary department... by doing so, u can help save the helpless puppies from the unhygenic place n avoid having more people experience what u did...

take care...

Re: [momothechow] Chow bought from leeyapfei (kkdoggie) died of corona & parvo virus :(

it was always safe to run a viral test immediately upon purchase or adoption. Vet is able to run all 3 test and the result is gotten immediately: that is parvo & corona and another test on distemper.

The earliest u know, the answer, the earlier treatment u can do. My min. pin, was diagnosed with distemper. We took her for viral test immediately after purchase. Proper treatment was given, and thank god she survived. Now, she is 3 years old and happy.

I couldnt imagine, if we took her home only to find out after that she is sick & dying ....cos, chances of survival of distemper is very, very low comparing to parvo....

anyway, I am sorry for your loss...

Here is an analogy for you.

You go into a coffee shop, you can clearly see the cook picking his nose, coughing into the food, there are cockroaches running all over the floor & counters & rat sh*t all over the place & YET you order the food & then you get diarrhea & food poisoning. And now you complain??? Like DUH??????????????

There is a Chinese saying, "Yat fun cheen, yat fun for," meaning, "How much you pay, equals how much you get." Clearly, the price of the Chow Chow equaled the quality you got. Obviously it was NOT vaccinated nor dewormed & I am wondering, whether it has an MKA cert or not. Well, does it?

This petshop WILL continue to flourish & make a LOT of money & get rich & laugh all the way to the bank because of SUCKERS like YOU!!! No point whining & telling the whole world to boycott this person. Intelligent people with active brain cells will KNOW what to buy & what NOT to buy.

I HOPE you have learned something from this STUPID mistake & remember this, a good breeder will NEVER sell their puppies to any Petshops, their dogs will be in TIP-TOP condition, they will only breed & sell GOOD-QUALITY dogs & MONEY is ***NOT*** their 1st priority!

Do your HOMEWORK by researching online on what kind of breeders to go for & what red flags to watch out for. NO good breeders will make & sell over FOURTEEN types of breeds of dogs like that leeyapfei.

If you would like to get a good-quality Chow Chow, I can recommend you a reputable show breeder that I know ONLY if you're REALLY REALLY REALLY interested in purchasing a good quality dog with health guarantees, etc & pay a lot of money for it. If you're not interested in a good-quality dog, go get one from a shelter then.
