Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.
I'm sorry to hear about this puppy. The pale look can be deceiving in puppies. They can have more of a pale look compared to older dogs. I'd pay more attention to the CRT than the actual color.
The lack of eating for 2 days is definitely concerning. If he's not vaccinated, then I'd worry about Parvo
. If you could get some Hill's a/d, that would be great and you can syringe feed the puppy. I would figure out the RER and syringe feed 50% the first 12 hours then 24% following that. You can split it into feeding
q 4 hours.
Sub Q fluids would also be ok. I usually go with 10 mL/lb every 12-24 hours, as needed.
As long as you're not seeing any coughing or nasal discharge
, then we can probably rule out pneumonia. It sounds like it's probably something in the GI tract. As you know, there are a lot of differentials there. I think for now we just need to treat symptomatically and supportively.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
