We had an autopsy done for the breeder. She helped us a lot through the whole thing, even paid for some of the tests when we couldn't. She wanted to rule out anything genetic. I told the vet I didn't want to know the results but it was ok to release the information to the breeder. We went to an emergency clinic, which is at a university, and 2 different vets. Lots of bloodwork and other tests done. It was just so odd, especially with her being so young. It came on so suddenly as well. I played ball with her one morning before work and when I came home my wife said Zoe is sick....

ndirishfan1975 Wanted to post an update for everyone who shared their thoughts and concerns on this thread. After 2 1/2 months of constant battling, blood work, X-rays etc...we made the agonizing decision to put Zoe down. She had a massive infection that we could not get under control and could not find the source of. She had dropped down from almost 70 pounds to 40 and could barely stand on her own. At the end I had to carry her up and down the stairs outside to go to the bathroom. The vet said our only other treatment option was exploratory surgery and given her condition I wasn't sure she would be able to make it through that. It was a horrible 2 1/2 months and in the end I think we made the right decision.

llombardo Have they ran any blood tests for tick diseases or poison? How are the kidneys? I would also look into the pyometra, but she is young. My female got sick when she was about a year and they never found out what it was. Her eyes were so blood shot that there was no white, she had a fever, high white blood cell count, lethargy, no eating and drinking. She was tested for everything and nothing came back positive. I'll tell you it wasn't cheap and I went to two different vets. There was medication, blood work, xrays, etc.
