Well, I'm still broke. still jobless...That doesn't bother me except when it comes to the care of my baby Tieba. If I was still working I could afford to "chase ghosts" when it come to finding out what's wrong with my baby girl. but I dropped her off at the vet for 6 hours while they performed whatever tests they needed to find out the problem. They told me "matter a factly" like they where 100% sure it was a bacterial growth on her intestine. Gave me pills to fix it and had me come back a week later. Charged me $74. to take her temp and say she's fine (that's on top of the $500. for the week before). She's not "fine" she's still got bloody stools, stinks like a corps, an has no energy. She's a Husky! with no energy??And she's been acting strange, just like my Elk hound before he died. I can't keep this up. An I'm not someone who'll spend thousands of dollars on an animal I can't save anyway. I just want to know what's wrong, an is it something that can be fixed. Grrrrrr, I'm so pissed!!! It could be pervo
Parvo is a virus that attacks the lining of the digestive system. It causes dogs to not be able to absorb nutrients or liquids.Puppies are especially prone to it because they have an immature immune system. When dogs contract parvo, they often have diarrhea, vomiting and lethargy. Usually they stop eating and develop a bloody foul-smelling, liquid stool stool.
Symptoms usually begin with a high fever, lethargy,depression an loss of appetite. Secondary symptoms appear as severe gastronomical distress, such as vomiting and bloody diarrhea. In many cases, dehydration, shock, and death follow.
Update 3/18, Found a different vet. One who seems to care more about the pet than their own pocket. He looked her over real good, said it wasn't parvo or she'd already been near death. so he changed her meds up a notch and told me all the people meds to get rather than pay inflated prices for the same thing with a pet label.She also lost 3 pounds in 2 weeks. So in recap, I payed $500. for one vet and a $74 for a bullshit return visit. And $50. for the new vet and $7. for the meds. Only thing left is to cross my fingers I guess.
She's eating good and has more energy, but I can do without the nasty gas! She seems happy. I hope she's pulling through
She relapsed again. She won't eat, and won't even come near me. Just tried to let her out and she wouldn't even go. She's extremely lethargic and gassy I hope it's just because she ran so much yesterday. I wish she could talk to me. She feels like she's burning up too. The whole thing is making me sick to my stomache
