PUPPY ILL

Hi there,
I have been rushing my GSD of 13 weeks to the vet since Monday morning. He has no parasites in his tool. He is now not eating or drinking. We were force feeding him glucose (for dogs) during the night and back at the vet today. He is very nauseas and has lost just over 1 kg since in the past few days?
No blood in his stool.
Vet keeps administering sinulox antibiotic.
What else could possibly be wrong with him. We are very worried.

Hi Margie

There are many conditions and diseases that need to be addressed in a sick puppy. It is important to have an understanding of your puppy’s vaccination and deworming history, problems associated with his littermate’s e.t.c. It may also be important to do some diagnostics such as hematology, biochemistry, viral testing (for example: distemper, parvo), X-ray’s (for example: intestinal intussusception, foreign body) e.t.c to direct the clinican as to what the problem maybe.

If you are unhappy with your vet’s response/treatment then consider a referral to another vet or animal welfare organization.

Kind regards
