At 5:30 this morning I was going to write a post about adventures with a puppy – accidents in the night … I didn’t and well, my day has gone downhill from there.
As you can probably tell Puppy woke me up in the middle of the night after having a big accident in her crate. She’s got the runs. We don’t know if it’s from the bacterial infection she came to us with, the round worm that she’s been diagnosed with or the vaccinations and worming meds she got on Tuesday.
Either way, she’s continued to have the runs all day.
I spoke with one of the vets at the clinic at 9 am and we decided on how to treat her – watch her, add rice to her diet etc, but when her stools became watery at 6 pm after a day of going going going we decided that we’d better get her in to the vet.
So she’s had her third vet visit in the 14 days we’ve had her.:( Now she’s on Flagyl – a medication I’m very familiar with as I was on it long term myself for my Crohns, and another antibiotic. We’re also going to give her 1 ml of Pepto Bismol to see if that slows down her runs.
Another vet bill and another hefty bill. Ahhh …. why was it that I wasn’t going to get a dog from a rescue or shelter again? Oh yeah I wanted a healthy puppy with no long term problems (behavioral or health) to begin with … yeah that worked out.
