    Unhappy Dylan isn't well

    Dylan has been sleeping a lot since he came back from boarding at his breeders. He played loads with another puppy all week there. Because of this I put it down to being tired.

    On Friday I took him to Trafalgar Square as they had put grass down for 2 days all over the Square and to Covent Garden. I did carry him some of the time. Then yesterday I took him to puppy class (we got very wet on the way) then Colchester to play with my sisters dog.

    So as you can see, he is probably tired but this morning he was shivering and didn't want his food. I put a soft fleece coat on him and he was still twitching. His eyes are tired and a little gunky.

    I took him to the PDSA as I am not working (donations only fee) and though I gave a big donation, it's still cheaper than an emergency vet as it's bank holiday Monday today. He said there was no temperature, no swollen glands he hasn't been sick or had diarrhea but he gave him an antibiotic injection. Do you think this is OK? I hate antibiotics. I asked him about this and he said I could wait and see if he gets worse. I agreed to give the antibiotics today and he goes back tomorrow.

    Sorry to hear that Dylan isn't feeling so good, give him a big kiss and a gentle hug from me won't you?

    It could just be a virus, the fact that he hasn't a temperature and isn't loose or being sick is also good, I think it was a good idea to give the Anti-Biotics, it was most likely a product called "Synulux" which is a broad spectrum AB used for most things. I daresay Dylan will be back to his normal bouncy self very soon indeed!

    Keep us posted!!

    Thanks Cathryn. He is sleeping but looks a bit better after boiled chicken and rice for brunch. I know I shouldn't indulge a fussy eater but I want him to have energy. I boiled the rice and the chicken in the same pot so it's nice.

    Dylan just got up and yelped a few times as if his legs were hurting and they dont look right. I'm relly worried now. They might just have been stiff from sleeping though.

    I hope he feels all better soon. It's so sad when they aren't themselves like that.

    couple get well hugs for Dylan from me & Lucky.

    Pauline, I'm no animal health expert, but if he continues to seem uncomfortable on his legs maybe call the vet for advice?

    That's probably the best thing to do.

    Yes, sounds like the best way to go, it may just be that he has a cold like virus, glad to hear he enjoyed his lunch made me feel hungry reading about it! Big Kiss and a very gentle for Dylan again from me.
