Very sick 10wk old Puppy


Recommended Posts

We got a puggle last Sunday...Monday we took him to the vet with slight case of kennel cough and we gave him the antibiotics. We also had his stool sample taken just to chack for any problems. Friday we got the results and Coby tested positive for coccidia and giardia. That day he slept alot and began vomiting, having diarrhia, and quevering.

We rushed him to the emergency hospital Friday night and it is now monday and he is still there. We visit everyday and things just don't seem to be getting better.

He is now very conjested, still having bloody mucusy diarrhea. His head is hanging and his tail is between his legs. His does not want to eat or drink and looks very skinny. His is on IV, albon, panacur, metronidazole, and anti-acid and anti-diarrhea.

We are vey upset and not sure what the outcome usually is with these illnesses. Any help or experiences would be greatly appreticated.

[quote name='DivineOblivion19'][color=indigo]Are they sure it's just coccidia and giarrdia? Have they mentioned anything about parvo at all? [/color][/quote]
They tested for Parvo and the test came out negative, but they said there can be false negatives. He is being isolated b/c of kennel cough and the parasites, but thay are also giving antibiotices in case of Parvo.

[quote name='__crazy_canine__']Look, Im sorry about your dog, sincerely.
BUT, if you wouldve done research you wouldve known that Puggles are bred by people interested in money, not the health of the dog. It doesnt suprise me in the least that your dog is having the problems it is.[/quote]

I really don't thinkmy mistake was buying a mixed breed--my mistake was buying from a pet store. I just got married and this is my first dog. I am sorry that I really was not aware of pet store--puppy mill issues.

Buying a mixed breed [i]is[/i] a mistake and its one that many people make. Same with buying from a pet store. The only people who breed mixed breeds are BYBs and puppymills. Again, same deal with the petstore.

Breeders may claim that breeding mixed breeds give you a healthy dog, but thats not the case, and as horrible as it is that your dog is sick, maybe its taught you something.

I hope you stick around and learn. :wink: I really suggest reading some of the stickys in the breeding section also. :)

I really do hope that your dog gets better. :angel:

Thanks for the support and understanding. A dog is a dog whether is be a pure breed or a mix. They still have personality and love. Sometimes more health problems sometimes less. Coby did pass away last night at 11:30 while still be treated in the hospital. For now I am going to work on kids and think about another dog in the future.

Thank you very much. You have to give people a chance b/c everyone is not aware of what really goes on with puppymills and pet shops. I am grateful and sad that I had to experience what I did. Now it's my turn to spread the word as much as I can. I am going to hire a lawyer and send my story to anyone and everyone that I can so others do not make the same mistake that I did.

I does hurt when someone acts heartless. Please try to give the next person the benefit of the doubt b/c not everyone is educated about the treatment of these animals.

Several years ago we had a problem with our well and all of our dogs got sick. Albon and everything else the vet tried didn't help but he finally sent off samples and they said that an antiobiotic called SMZ was the only thing that would kill this particular strain. Ask your vet about trying SMZ. It has a lot longer name but I don't know what it is. SMZ should help your vet figure out what the medicine is. If not send me a message and I'll give you the vet's name for your vet to talk to.
