Your vet gave the pup a lepto when he was already sick with diarrhea?
Sorry, I'm not judging you at all.
You followed what the vet told you to do. It just amazes me that vets give shots when clearly the dog is not well!
Get some canned pumpkin (NO spices) from the grocery store. Some digestive enzymes, pro-biotics: Digest All Plus - The Wholistic Pet
. The herb Slippery Elm (from a local health food store) will calm his little tummy.
As for the food, giving different samples will make the situation worse. Get one food and stick with it. A good quality food that you can get at Petsmart is called Nature's VARIETY
(not Natures Recipe) Non-grain such as Wild Prairie, Grasslands, Pacifica or Ranchlands.
Wean him on to this slowly from the Beneful.
Hope this helps the little fella.
Not trying to scare you here, just info for your consideration.
Dr. Karen Becker: “There is a vaccine for leptospirosis, but I do not recommend it. It is a relatively weak bacterial vaccine with marginal staying power and it cannot protect against all 20 or more leptospira serovars. The vaccine carries a significant risk of adverse reactions, especially in small dogs. Information is also emerging that the lepto vaccine can actually cause the disease in dogs, and can bring on kidney failure in older dogs.”
Dr Patricia Jordan is a vet who has done a great deal of research into the vaccine issue. She added these comments: "Kidney failure is a common sequel to vaccination. The basement membrane is susceptible to damage from a clogging that results as the immune complexes are drained via the lymphatics. The kidney is a big part of the lymphatic system. The body tries to clear the toxins in the vaccines and there is damage done in this clearing mechanism.
"Lepto is a very adverse event associated vaccine and the damndest thing is that lepto vaccines simply do not work. Dr Ron Schultz (the world's foremost independent authority on canine vaccines) hates to see them in with anything else and, in puppies, advises that they are completely finished with the viral inoculations before getting a vaccine against Lepto, which he neither recommends nor advocates - even in Lepto endemic areas.
"I have seen older dogs go into kidney failure within two days of receiving a Lepto vaccine."
Vaccines can also cause the disease you're attempting to prevent. In the Canine Health Concern vaccine survey, 100% of dogs with leptospirosis contracted it just after being vaccinated against it. Leptospirosis, of course, attacks the kidneys - and the puppy had severe kidney damage. http://www.dogsadverserea...cines/vaccineDamage.html
