What a night...*UPDATE*

Recommended Posts

What a night I had last night.. 3 am Sassy is awake & whining in her crate. I thought she needed to pee since she's got another UTI. Took her out, she didn't go. Brought her inside. Left her out of the crate while I went to the bathroom. Came out, and she was throwing up. Everything she ate yesterday was brought back to life. Not once, but 3 times.. Then she has a very messy poopie on the floor. She had it coming out of both ends. Finally I guess she'd gotten it all out of her system, she walked into her crate & promptly passed out. Leaving me to clean up puke & poop at 3 in the morning.. Oh the joys of dog ownership.. Could it of been a reaction to the antibiotics? She's on 250mg of the genaric version of Baytril(Sp). Last time she didn't have such an adverse reaction to it.. And she's only had 4 pills so far. Should I stop giving them to her & call the vet tomorrow?

Unless she has a really sensitive stomach (which she does doesn't she?) I doubt it would be the baytril. Lucky was on it for a foot infection, and he has a really sensitive stomach too with no bad effects. My rat girls are also on Baytril for a respiratory infection, ad no side effects either. I would call the vet too.

This just keeps getting more & more strange.. She has yet to get a drink of water today. I just gave her fresh & she just sniffed at it & walked away.. She shows no intrest in eating. She usally hovering over me when I eat something. She's curently asleep in her crate again. I'm going to make a trip to the vet tomorrow and have her checked out.. I hope it's just the antibiotics and nothing else..

Call your vet, maybe you can give her some pepto bismo to help sooth her stomach a little bit. We were told to once, when smoke had the flu (which is exactly what your describing).

Yes if this has just suddenly flared up after giving antibiotics, she could well be sensitive to them. Baytril is a good antibiotic but giving the generic version isn't the same as actual baytril and therefore its more likely to be harsh on her sensitive stomach.

Hopefully she will get back on track soon :wink:

:-? I put her back on the meds & she's sicker then before.. Gah, I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow for a full work up.. This is so strange.. If I skip a day she's fine, but if I give them every day she get really sick.. So I don't know what's up.. She got sick on the last antibiotics also, but not this badly..

I don't know what is going on with her, but she's still not herself. She's on new meds, but she's still refuseing food. Vet said tempt her with "human foods" I got her to eat a tiny bit of Turkey, but that;'s about it. I'm going to try to boil up some rice and some chicken today & see if I can get her to eat some of it. Vet didn't find anything pyhsicaly wrong with her. Blood work is normal. we're just stumped..
