Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear your pup is having problems. Are you available to answer a few questions?
Ok, can you tell me if her gums look nice and pink or if they are pale?
Is she limping or walking gingerly at all?
If you are at home and she is around, if you press down along her spine is she sensitive in any areas or if you turn her head back and forth and up and down, if she reacts in a negative way?
is her water intake and urination normal?
Ok. If you can check these things when you get home and let me know, they will give me more info to help you. Also, if you can take her temperature - you can do this with a regular thermometer- you just need to lubricate it with Vaseline or ky jelly and insert it 1 to 2 inches into the rectum. Normal temp is 100.5 to 102.5 in a dog. I will check back later to see what you found once you get home if that is ok.
Just following up to see if you were able to look at the things we discussed and how your dog is doing tonight.
You are welcome, hope she is feeling better!
