I have a Dogue De Bordeaux and she whelp 7 puppies on the 15

I have a Dogue De Bordeaux and she whelp 7 puppies on the 15 January 2017. Out of 7 puppies, 4 died on the same day. Whereas, 1 puppy died on the 18 January 2017. So I have only 2 puppies left. The mother had great difficulties during the delivery, where the 6th puppy (Dead) was stuck in the birthcanal and she went though an abortion to remove the last puppy (7th and Dead).The 1st and 4th born are still alive.On 19th Jan, the mother was still bleeding from the Vagina only and she went to the vet. The local told us that it may be metritis and he gave the mother an injection (Unfortunately, I dont know the name of the injection).One of the two puppies is very weak and had a swollen eyes. I gave her 1ml of honey on the gum and is bottle feeding her as from today (20 Jan 2017). However, he is still weak with the swollen eyes and not really drink.Anyone, can help with the weak puppy please.

My dog died a month ago while I was not at home. I found her with her tongue hanging from her mouth - the edge had turned black. I am concerned that she suffered before she died and am wondering whether the blackened tongue is indicative of suffering. Also, her eyes were open. Thanks.

Possible UTI? Took my 31 lb female Puggle Lola to the vet

Possible UTI?Took my 31 lb female Puggle Lola to the vet tonight, since yesterday she would pee the "try" to pee several more times in the time span of 5 minutes, like her usual one time pee?Tonight my husband noticed blood in her urine, so we immediately took her the vet and she did some tests.Her urine came back with no bacteria, but she the urine was very diluted and had a very high white and red blood count when there should be none.She couldn't tell if it was a UTI for sure.Lola had just ate and drank water before the vet and has been acting normal this whole time...no pain etc.Dog gave her 68mg of Enrofloxacin.I am worried about her taking this med as it is in the FLUOROQUINOLONE family.I'm not sure if the adverse effects are the same as humans, I have a friend who was given FLUOROQUINOLONES and is slowly dying, she has every side effect but death.The FDA has put a harsher black box label on them now.But I am worried about my Lola on them, and that seems to be a high dosage given.Can you advise me on this? Especially with her not being sure but "sounds and symptoms of UTI"..... and high WBC and RBC...IM REALLY WORRIED ABOUT THE MED AND HER.thank you,Sue

  • My 12 year old Schnauzer had a really long mucous discharge after she urinated today. I've also noticed that she has a problem with urine leakage. And since it was just the 4th and she was scared to death. It was really hard getting her out. And she is not drinking much water at all
  • My dog is cocerspainal and she is 40 pds she is healthy and doesn't take any medication. How much alprazelam or zanax does she need for a night of stoms. She claws us to death.
  • My King Charles cavalier, age 11 years 8 months with a #6 heart murmur passed away last week. He did not get his evening dose of Enparil. Could his death have been prevented if he had his medication on time? Also, if the dose were increased could he have lived longer?
