pet’s breed: Silky Terrier pet’s age: Three pet’s sex: Male previous treatment:
My daughter found this little guy roaming on the roadway, unkept,abandoned. Had his teeth cleaned and groomed. Two days later started throwing up shaking and pooping. Vet gave him an IV and sent him home. Next day he was worse. Returned to the vet overnight and given antibiotics. Released the next day and after eating started the whole thing over again. The vet is now closed?
The vet said he had an elevated white count. Blood test showed liver etc functioning fine. One overnight stay with antibiotics, is that enough. No medication was perscribed. Daughter has only had this poor little guy for two weeks and he is not getting better.
If number of White blood cells is increased, means that some infection is in the body. The body temperature should be increased too in the beginning. First of all, vet should continue with broad spectrum antibiotics every day until the health of your dog return to normal. If there is a diarrhea streptomycin is antibiotic of choice. It should get vitamins too, especially group B and vitamin C. Ranitidine is next medicine and this you can give it as tablets if not throwing up. Ranital is given against throwing up. If it’s starving for few days, administer IV fluids.
