I have a lab, approx 3yr old. He was wondering outside my gate, hungry and dehydrated. I took him in and he has been with me for approx. 1yr. I came home yesterday and could tell that something was wrong with him, something more then just not feeling well. This morning I took him to my verterinarian and he gave him a shot of penicillan and gave me some cephalaxin to give him at home as well as meds for a cough. That was at least 5hrs. ago; I would think that the penicilan would have been working by now. Anyway, the dog is drooling, has really bad breath
, and when trying to open his mouth to see inside, he let out a roar. His breathing is very load and he is snoring
. There is a drop of blood on the floor from him also and I think it came from his mouth. If it was just a mouth injury, he wouldnt have a fever, and if he was just sick, he wouldn't let out a roar when I was trying to look in his mouth. When it comes to food, he has always been an aggressive dog woofing down his food. Now he is the most gentle dog to feed, just opening his mouth to let you put the food in it. I was thinking that maybe he got a hold of something....a gopher, squirrel, something that maybe bit him to make him sick, and that maybe a partical of bone
is stuck in his throat? I don't know....what do you think?
