    Yes, but when I called the vet, the vet said as long as he is eating and drinking which he is no need to bring him in.
    Now I took him temp and it is below 100 is this an emergency or not, if not what can I do to bring him body temp up wrap him up? He had a very very hectic and playful day

    id call the vet again and tell him his temp and ask what you can do(tell them ALLL of his symptoms ) and if you still feel uneasy take him in anyway!

    Weekend ER vet was useless. I just now got back with my baby, he has kennel cough. Pick it up on the street from a woman's mixed yorkie dog who was obviously sick. Damned, I will know better next time I see her about. he dog was sick and mine siniffed and played. Damned, I will cross the street as it gets pretty expensive sniffing other dogs. Mine is still young and his immune is not fully protected against such apparently. Even tho he has had all his shots and boosters he is still puney:( . Poor little thing now has to take so many meds. But luckily for me the vet is not giving drugs but more plant medications that work just as well if not better. Plus he has shots to help him immune system.

    Thanks, he is so clingy now that he is sick, he is like my double shadow, I guess he looks to me for keping him comfy. I put on one of my tshirts and wrap him up in it, the little stinker LOVED it:lol-sign: he loved the babying I am giving him. Damned I wished I was a dog:D . I wonder how long it takes to getting over this? I forgot to ask the vet

Never me let him associate with that woman and he sick dogs again:mad:

    Illnesses are everywhere, though. You can't always avoid it. Sometimes all you can do is catch it and treat it as soon as possible. Important to have a good vet with a backup plan.

    Well I like the vet I have chosen for him, this vet does not give harsh meds but is more into natural meds which I would rather prefer. Thismorning I made a hell of a meal for him. It is gross sounding but he liked it. if put all mixed up solid he WONT eat it. About equal parts of the following

    Royal Canin Kibble
    carrots
    potatoes
    goats milk
    plain yoghurt
    1tsp flax oil
    1 sardine

    Blend the stuff up and let him lick it off my hands and or the syringe, he did both well ate 15gm which is not bad. Will offer more at about 2pm

    Put a heating pad in the puppy's bed and set it on low. Make sure that you keep the cords secured so they cannot be chewed. A low temp can be a sign of many serious problems. Everything from parvo to shock to hypoglycemia. Feed the puppy warm food to help warm him/her from the inside, and yes, seek veterinary attention.
