Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) What were the initial symptoms on Thursday? 2) What diagnostics were performed? blood work, fecal, parvo test? 3) What are you seeing today that has worsened symptom-wise?
Were no diagnostics performed to determine the diagnosis?I ask because 8 week old puppies are prone to viruses that can be life-threatening. If no diagnostics were performed, that will be the next step and they need to happen promptly. Your description if the situation does not sound like this puppy needs to wait an extended period of time before medical intervention begins again.
