please help me (moved - puppy needs to go to vet)
 
hello , my new 11 weeks old puppy's temperature is 39 and she has diharriah , I am really scared this is the second time I am not ready for another lose , what should I do to help my dog recover fast from this disease , the doctor said she doesn't have because her poo has no blood and doesn't smell very bad.
please help me what should I do to help my dog not get this fatal disease or atleast help her recover from it (please don't tell me go to the vet because it rarely helps though I will do it but I still need to do something)


sorry if this is the wrong board to discuss this at but I am so stressed and idk where to post such topic

A little more details would be helpful to those trying give you advice.

From just what you have here, it sounds like your puppy may just have an upset tummy.. or got into something? Is he vomitting too? Drinking water? Eating? how's his energy?

I would still take a sample for stool to the vet for testing just in case.

he plays sometimes , but not much just bites me for fun but when I run she barely tries to she keeps staring at me , she eats only when I try to feed her from my hands but not from her plates , and she drinks

from the Ops other posts, it seems he had a pup die of parvo. Hopefully you cleaned everything thoroughly and tried to figure out where it may have caught it from. The virus can live in the ground for years.

Go to the vet. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Go to the vet if you have any indication your new pup may have parvo

so there is nothing to do other than taking her to the vet , there is nothing that can help her at home (+going to the vet)

wyoung2153 06-09-2014 04:27 PM

OH.. that makes all the difference. YES VET! sorry, but if that's the case, you should air on side of caution and go get her checked. There isn't anything you can do at home.

I'm sorry, you had a pup that died from parvo less than a month from when you brought home your new pup. You really need to take this pup to the clinic to increase it's chances of survival.

yes, all you do is go to the vet.

I just woke up , she is playing as if she never played before , she doesn't eat much , only chicken and what surrounds it from vegetables , but she has a huge sum of energy , she doesn't vomit and no diharriah till now , I am not sure if her tummy just hurts or not , but the doctor said she isn't infected with parvo, btw I cleaned after my old puppy , and my whole backyard is cleaned with a medicine the vet gave me .

so right now she only doesn't eat much and probably diharria , but plays and no vomit (thank god) , I still don't know what's with her

You will want to keep her hydrated, can you offer some broth instead of water? Do you have any white rice you can cook very soft and add some boiled chicken and broth? Give a 1:1 ratio of rice to chicken or whatever other boiled meat protein is available. If no white rice available then pasta will do. Keep her on a bland diet until her stomach heals. This should usually take 2-3 days, then slowly add her regular diet.

I have also given small amounts of cottage cheese and rice when my dog had diarrhea. I'm not sure what foods you have available in Egypt.

Can you bring a stool sample to the vet and check for other parasites?

also if the temp is 39C = 102.2F which is the normal range for a dog
The normal body temperature for a dog falls within the range of 100F to 102.5F (about 38C to 39.2C).
