You’d like to buy a cute and beautiful collie puppy? And, most importantly, a HEALTHY one!? How to make your choice, where shouldn’t you make errors? I am going to share my story, perhaps it will help you.
There is a kennel called Monsolana (city of Glazov, Udmurt Republic). Its owner’s name is Buldakova Olga. It was this kennel that we opted for. Beautiful dogs, beautiful puppies.
The puppy came to us, we were happy, as we had awaited this event much. However, strangely enough, the puppy was thin and did not play with us. She was just lying and eating. Her eyes were strongly festering, and the puppy was tearing hair out of itself. Of course, we’ve asked Olga Buldakova about the puppy’s condition. We were reassured that the puppy had acclimatization and a stress due to the move. But she was healthy! Being naive, we believed the breeder for some time.
Since the puppy’s condition still raised doubt, we’ve made a stool test, and the puppy appeared to be strongly wormed. We’ve eliminated worms, made the biochemical blood work, an ultrasound investigation. The measurements were bad. Liver and kidneys, and gallbladder, and pancreas required medical treatment. What was the reason for such poor condition of the puppy? Because you know, shortly before the arrival, she had been made vaccinations, and she should had been dewormed before the vaccinations.
It has turned out that we had a counterfeit veterinary passport:
An expired vaccine, an unknown Vetzashchita NPO stamp and an unknown signature of some Kozhevnikova. I’ve contacted the organization mentioned on the stamp, – they have nothing to deal with this stamp.
The puppy needs to be re-vaccinated. But vaccination can’t be done before she recovers, gets better.
And, perhaps, those are the consequences of the parvoviral enteritis the puppy had suffered in the kennel, and the puppy was not made recover after the illness? For some reason, they forgot to tell us about it when we were making the purchase. But the truth came to light, even though after 1.5 month.

Interesting story from the Internet.
That’s the puppy that came from a kennel Monsolana with frostbitten hindquarters.
