3 weeks of on and off fever of 106° with 24 hour hourly monitoring at animal hospital. X-rays showing fluid in his lungs. Blood platelet count still very low. Multiple blood tests and no tick born illness. They can not figure out what is wrong. Multiple antibiotics being used injected with no positive results. Any idea of what this can be from and what we can do, the doctor is now requesting we go to another specialist because he can not figure out what is wrong?

Did the vet rule out canine influenza? I don’t know what it is but it sounds like best to get a second opinion I do hope you get some answers and recovery is around the corner.

Canine Influenza has been ruled out they are thinking it is some type of virus in the blood.

Did they test for leptospirosis? Hopefully you can get more suggestions. Best go to a vet with a few specialists in the hospital so they hopefully get some answers.

Covid19 or coronavirus in general? I’m not trying to sound snarky but last time I checked (literally the last time I checked lol), dogs couldn’t get Covid19... coronavirus has been around forever though and the symptoms are similar to OP... and the only treatment was IV bags until it cleared their system.

You should check again. Dog's contracting Covid19 is documented on reputable sources and has been for months. Which shouldn't be terribly surprising considering there is already a strain of coronavirus they are vaccinated for. I'm not interested in having a debate on the thread of a sick dog and detracting from the importance of their thread. I'm offering the OP a suggestion.

They ruled out canine fever and they are thinking it is a rare parasite that they recently had another dog die from in Topanga California very near to us.

They ruled out canine influenza, both vets say it is a rare parasite and they are just cont to refer us to other vets to avoid any legal responsibilities. Antibiotics are not working.

The vet said its not covid-19 they think it is a very rare parasite that is antibiotic resistant.

Thankyou for the information I will tell the vet to check again for any other possible covid strains.

I am trying to find a herbal parasite killer because this parasite seems to be antibiotic resistant. There is another dog near us that died from the same thing. Does anyone know a good herbal parasite killer?

If it is a parasite, it might be worthwhile to try fenbendazole (which is a dewormer often used to kill the Giardia parasite) or Kochi Free (which is an organic remedy that is said to kill Giardia and Coccidia parasites).

If you are looking for a natural approach, there are 3 things that you can try.

*A Homeopathic Nosode called “Bowel Pathogen”

“Homeopathic nosodes can stimulate the body to recognize a disease and assist in the elimination of pathogens naturally. Nosodes make an indirect attack on diseases by stimulating the immune system and white blood cell production. It aids in enhancement of immune response to typical bowel pathogens.”
Homeopathic remedies and nosodes are administered in a different way from other meds. If you decide to try this, you can pm me for instructions.

Purchase here: Bowel Pathogen Nosode - 2 fl. oz (60 ml)


*An Herbal combination called “Kocci-Free” now re-branded as “Kochi Free”

“Contains organic anti-microbial and anti-parasitic herbs.”

“ Build and stimulate the immune system

 Rid the body of microscopic parasites

 Kills viruses, bacteria and fungus

 Soothe the digestive system”

Purchase here: Amber Naturalz Kochi Free GI Support Herbal Liquid Formula for Dogs & Cats


*MSM - Methylsulfonylmethane is a non-toxic form of active sulfur.

MSM makes the bowel "a very unfriendly place for parasites".

There are very different grades of msm. Bergstrom is the company that manufactures OptiMSM and PuroforMSM. After researching, and reading the certifications that they have, I believe this one is the best!

A company called Kala distributes OptiMSM & PurforMSM by Bergstrom: MSM in Powder: 1-lb, 10-lbs and Bulk Quantities from KALA Health
Purchase the "Coarse Flakes" (which contain only Methylsulfonylmethane)
Do NOT purchase the "Fine Crystals" that has Silicon Dioxide added

You could try collidiol silver. But I would make sure you coordinate with the vet if you decide to use this.

This morning he attacked our 16 year old deaf and blind yorkie who we think had a stroke. He has never before shown aggression towards I do not know if this has anything to do with the sickness from parasite.
