Many of you know we lost our dog Sandy at the beginning of the year. We had wanted to get a new puppy in the fall when we knew we would be home and here to train a new dog. So a few days before Halloween, I brought home a Chihuahua mix puppy for our youngest especially to replace our other dog for her.
So meet Pip. A little brindle darling of a puppy. Sadly though. last week he started acting a little off and eventually he stopped eating.
After a few rough days, a trip the vet Saturday and last night having to rush him to the emergency vet at one in the morning, we finally know what is the matter with our little guy. He has a tiny microscopic parasite that has made him a very sick boy. We almost lost him last night and he still will not eat on his own. To keep his blood sugar up, we are hand feeding and making him eat every three hours. I have been to the vet three times and hubby, my oldest and I are all totally sleep deprived. He is still weak and not doing as well as we have hoped but he is on the correct meds and I hope he rallies and starts to feel better.
