Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
Hi this is Dr. Dani, I'm a small animal veterinarian and I'm happy to help with your dog. What is her name? What is her age and breed? How long have her symptoms been going on? Has there been any vomiting, diarrhea or coughing? Please give me some additional information and I'll be happy to help.
Ok thanks for the additional information about June. Is she trying to use her back legs but can't? Or does she just seem very weak? Can you lift her lip and see if her gums are pink?
Her symptoms concern me that she may get worse over night. Are you able to take her in to an emergency clinic tonight? I am concerned that she may be weak from anemia or blood loss, dehydration, an internal problem with her liver or kidneys, or even a neurological problem with her spine that is causing her weakness.
Please let me know if an ER vet clinic is an option tonight, and if you have any other questions.
And please make sure to rate me when you're satisfied with the service you've received as this is the only way I am compensated for my time. Thanks
Ok then I recommend trying to get some liquid in to her tonight to help with hydration. Try offering chicken broth, liquid from a can of tuna mixed with water, etc. Also, can you take her temperature rectally?
Ok then try and keep her comfortable tonight, offer liquids, and then you can get her to the vet in the morning.
I hope she does well!
