Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm sorry to hear that Napoleon has been so ill. Why is it that you thought he was poisoned? When did he last eat or drink?

From your very short description, I am concerned enough about Napoleon to suggest that you seek an emergency vet to have him examined ASAP. It's definitely been too long without peeing and pooping - something is seriously wrong. It's also definitely not normal for them to be hardly moving at all. If you absolutely cannot seek emergency care for him, we can continue to chat and I'll help you as best I can.

Please let me know what other questions I can handle for you.

~Dr. Sara

We gave him charcol and he at least moves his tail but still in the same spot im so worried because i had a dog that was bitten by a recluse spider and napoleon fur is like a corgi very poofy i cant see anything too furry
Expert:  Doc Sara replied 8 months ago.

Brown recluse bites cause large areas of necrosis (dead tissue) and open wounds - so if you're seeing that he's more ill than just a wound, then there's probably something else going on here.
