I got max when he was around 3 months from a puppy store in NY. The night we brought him home I noticed that he had been coughing a lot. I made an appointment to the vetinarian the next day and she told me he had pneumonia and that it was really bad. She was explaining that even with treatment, that he was really sick and that he might not make it but we will try. Well after about 4 weeks of nebukizer treatments back and forth to the vet and around 5 different medicines twice a day all at different times max was cured and was no longer sick. He became a healthy and very happy puppy. I believe that he would of been much worse at the place if I had not went there that day.
