Where did this puppy come from? A shelter, or a breeder?

keep her brother separated from her if he hasn't been fully vaccinated yet. I had to have a foster maltipoo put down about two years ago for distemper. It sounds as if your girl might have it. Unfortunately there is not a test for it you can only treat the symptoms as they occur. Distemper is pretty uncommon nowadays but it is seen in neighborhoods where people don't vaccinate their dogs. It is spread mostly by nose to nose contact. I really wish you the best of luck and my thoughts are with your girl.

Well we are back at the E-Vet. She vomited non stop and then fell down, curled up, and won't really move. They took her straight back so I'm sitting playing the waiting game.

I will def inquire about distemper when I speak to the vet, and I stop crying lol.

Her brother IS fully vaccinated, as he is older and goes to day care on occasion. She had had her first round of puppy shots including distemper.

Ill keep you all up to date as much as possible.

At 10 weeks, symptoms showing up 6-7 days ago, a week after the vaccine may possibly be a vaccine reaction...Acute reactions are noted within mins. to 48 hrs after, but can happen at anytime.

If it is distemper, then it is likely vaccine induced, or distemper like symptoms - neurological.

She would also likely still have maternal antibodies from distemper.

I would discuss this w/the vet and find out if she was treated for this (vacine reaction) and if so, the vaccine company may pay for care if it is confirmed by the vet....BUT insist on the lot # and manufacturer and date. The more you push and ask questions the more the vet has to advocate for you

They likely treated her for this (IV) while in hospital

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
