They aren't sure what is wrong- so they want to keep her overnight. She has never spent a night without people. I am so upset. Sandy

I can only imagine what you are going through but don't worry too much because as upsetting as it is at least she is getting the best help - they are probably monitoring her to be on the safe side.

Try to get some sleep cause she will need some one on one attention when she comes home!!!

Thinking of you all! :l*v:

Oh, she's so sweet! She's where she will get the attention she needs; I hope she'll be back to you tomorrow.

They are both adorable, do you have both of them?

I'm sure she will be spoilt by all the nurses in the vets, doesn't everyone just love Cavaliers!

Soon be home in your arms again! :flwr:

Sandy, what a scary and sad experience--why do they have to get sick? :( they are too sweet to suffer. i hope she's responding and will be much better by the time you see her again.
she and her sister are adorable dogs, and each with such a distinct expression and personality.
i'm hoping to hear good news from you soon.

Oh Sandy, I am so sorry. I hope she's allowed home today and that she recovers quickly.

These babies get so far under our skin I think we worry more about them than we do our human kids :l*v:

Yes, we have both of them. They will turn two years old next Tuesday.
:drivecar: I am going to be racing to the vet as soon as I can. I just hope I can take her home. Sandy

Good luck Sandy. Hope she will be home by next you post. They are such lovely girls. Are these of your own breeding. I love their faces...just lovely.

Domi is home!! Her fever is gone and she is eating small, easy to digest meals.

Yes, these girls are from our own breeding- Three years of research (love, blood, sweat and tears too) before we took on the challenge of a litter. Domi is such a sweet combination of her sire and dam-- her sister is her fathers clone.

thanks everyone for all your help through this - my imagination seemed to negatively feed itself. The longer she was gone, the worse the worry got.

Best to everyone!! Sandy

I'm glad she is safe and home. WHEW! What a scare!!

Did the vet ever figure out what caused this illness or it just one of those things?

It was likely a gastrointestinal bacterial infection. The high white blood cell count confirmed an infection. The high, fast fever makes in likely bacterial- she also responded well to the antibiotic shots (which wouldn't likely affect a virus). Fingers crossed, she is doing much better today.
We don't know how or why she got it=== and we don't know if she'll give it to the other dogs. She sleeps with her sister- who doesn't seem affected at all. I've cleaned and disinfected all her stuff. All we can do is wait and see.
Thanks for all the help-- Sandy
