    Im a new member here and Im not to sure if this is in the right section or not. But here it goes, The past 2 days my chihuahua/jack russel mix dog has been unusually sick. We have a rat terrier/jack russel mix that was showing this sickness for 2 days but it shook it or so it seems. The chihuahua though seems to be worse, she hasnt eaten, barely drinks, is puking some awful looking mucousy looking stuff. Not to mention when she does use the bathroom she poops blood. She also has a nasty breath smell that my mother says reminds her of parvo. If anyone here can help me id greatly appreciate it. I want to be able to help my dog as much as possible. Thanks in advance!!!

    Update

    Well the bad news is that there wasnt a vet open for 50 miles. I live in a pretty small town that doesnt have its own vet. The really sad thing is that during the middle of the night the poor thing passed away. We had it ready to take to the vet and everything as soon as i woke up. It had pased away which really sucks cause we were really attached to it. Thanks for the advice though and hopefulley the one that is still with us will live a longer and happy life.

    I am so sorry. It is so hard to lose a pet. Do you know yet what it was?

    That's so sad. It might be a good idea to take your other dog to the vet to make sure it's okay in case there was a communicable disease involved.
