This little puppy needs to grow into it’s skin! Look at those cute little rolls! Isn’t this puppy absolutely adorable?
My little puppy seems to be doing better today. 2 movements and both were formed. That’s the first time in more than a week that that’s happened. She’s still on antibiotics and still getting her dry food mixed with rice.
I gave her, her 2nd does of worming meds yesterday afternoon. It’s called Drontal Plus and it’s not supposed to have any side effects, but just like last Tuesday when she had her first dose and her 2nd set of vaccinations, she got super hyperactive. The vet called to check on her and to let me know that we’re still waiting on cultures, but the test had at least come back negative for Giardia. I asked the vet if the worming meds might make her hyper and he said no, but she’s been hyper twice after having the medication.
Last night she was just pacing back and forth. The only time she was happy and fairly normal was when we were playing fetch with a rubber ball in the house, walking outside or playing in some other way. Otherwise she would get up on the couch with us and we’d try to settle her down but she then she’d jump off after 2 to 5 minutes, pace, drink water and come back begging to get up on the couch again. She was also whining constantly. This went on through the night whining in her crate. I don’t know if she was in pain or just felt strange but I’m certain that the worming meds were the cause.
Along with her almost normal movements today she’s acting a lot better. We’ve had a couple play sessions and walks today and right now she’s having a nap on the couch at my feet.
