Watkins was just four months old, when he suffered this terrible illness. Stephanie remembers how much she had panicked, that she had to rush hurriedly to the vet, carrying in her arms, the disease-stricken Watkins, with hopes for a cure. The doctor diagnosed Watkins and reported that he had suffered from collapsed intestines and bullet shots. He has also suffered from malnutrition, which has caused his ankles to be deformed and his muscle tendons to lose their mobility.
Watkins’ health continues to deteriorate, in spite of all the doctor’s efforts. He suffered a purulent discharge every time he sat down.
