Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. I am sorry to hear your pup has you worried. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.
How is she doing since eating , did she peak up?
Do you notice any sores in her mouth, does she act like her mouth is painful or did she seem to have any trouble swallowing when eating?
Ok. Any chance she got in to anything other then the Peace Lily?
What color are her gums?
Peace Lilys are considered toxic due to their Insoluble calcium oxalates but this would not cause the problems that you are seeing. When they chew on or ingest the Peace lily what we would expect to see is oral irritation, pawing at the mouth, drooling or having trouble swallowing so I think something else is going on here.
Let me know if the Nutri stat perks her up or if you can think of anything else that might have gotten in to. Also let me know if her gums are nice and pink?
If you could take a rectal temp that would help as well?
How long had it been since she had eaten when she became wobbly?
Any recent application of flea prevention, flea baths, exposure to anything new at all?
Ok can you wake her up and see if she will walk around for you. Please do not take offense to this but any chance she was exposed to any medications or things like marijuana?
Yes wake her up I want to see how she does now that the Nutri stat has had a few minutes to work
I also want to make sure you are able to wake her and she is alert
Ok. If she can not walk then you need to get her in to the vet right away even if that means going to the ER. If she did not get in to anything toxic then I would be concerned that she has somehow injured her back . Another thing that has to be on the list is Encephalitis or Meningitis all of which could become more serious or even deadly if not addressed right away.
I am really worried about your pup. I try to give at home care advice when possible but I really think she needs immediate hands on care.
I will be on until midnight please let me know how she is doing and what the vet says if you take her in.
Please reply back if you have additional questions and I will be happy to continue. If you have no additional questions please take a few moments to provide a rating so that I am compensated by justanswer for assisting you today.
Hypoglycemia is corrected by getting food in them and a sugar source like the Nutristat, neither of these things helped which is why I am worried enough to suggest having her seen. Without seeing her I can not be 100% sure of anything but this would not be a typical presentation of hypoglycemia.
You can try keeping an eye on her but if you see no change at all with in the hour I would not wait. A pup can be injured very easily and if she is unable to use her legs I simply can not rule out an injury
Ok That is promising. As long as you can be with her then lets give her an hour and see how she does. I am glad to hear she is walking she really had me worried.
How may time per day is she normally fed? At 2 months she should be eating every 6 hours at the least to keep her glucose levels stable. Any puppy can have a drop in glucose levels but it is seen more often in toy breeds.
Yay that is awesome news. Please keep me posted I will be on until midnight. Give her a good pet from me and tell her she gave us a good scare.
Hello. I am going to be going off line soon and just wanted to check in with you to see how she was doing.
