Sick Puppy, Please Help!!!

We bought a 2 month old Pitbull puppy, after bathing her we removed about 100 ticks. She has been sick ever since we got her. We took her to the vet who said she had aneamia and dewormed her. She checked for tick fever but said it wasn't that. Then her breath started smelling very bad and we took her back to the vet who said her tonsils had started rotting. Put her on a antibiotic for 5 days. After about a week her condition hadn't changed so the vet put her on another 10 day course which didn't help and she has lost a lot of weight. We then de-wormed her again and her breath got better, but her gums are still very pale. We have now started treating her ourself whith Blue Liquid, milk, egg and brandy. This seems to be working, she has more energy and has started playing with the other dogs and running around. We are also giving her raw liver, but the gums are still pale but not yellow. Could this be aneamia, what can we do to treat her if this is the case?

It sounds as if your pup needs to be investigated further and may need a blood transfusion if it is very pale. Please ask your vet to examine the pup again or ask to be referred to another vet for another opinion. Brandy is not a good idea!
