    Default My Baby is sick





    Ilsa woke up this morning, walked as usual and afterwards began vomiting for over 2 hours straight. This being Sunday (and tomorrow a holiday here in France) her regular vet was closed until tuesday so we jumped a taxi to the emergency vet. She examined Ilsa for all of 10 minutes, told me she had a virus and gave her a shot and a prescription for some pills. She still won't walk, eat (even her favorites with her obligatory SM pills) and I am terrified and have no idea what to do. I called the clinic back and they told me to let her rest but I hate to see her like this. I am so afraid for my little girl.

    If she doesn't improve, I'd ask for blood work to be done to see how she is coping on her SM meds. Just my opinion.

    I'm sorry to hear this. All you can do is let her sleep and fight the virus herself.It's a dreadful worry when you have to sit up with a very ill dog. Let's hope for a speedy recovery.

    If she's stopped vomiting and isn't having diarrhea, I'd let her rest. Think about what you need when you have a tummy virus. Typically, I feel wiped out and if I am not hanging over the loo, then I am wanting to be curled up asleep. They probably feel the same way. Last time Bandit and Lizzie were like that (at the same time) once the vet gave them a shot, they finally stopped shivering and vomiting and slept for about 4 hours straight. When they woke up they felt so much better. It took another day or so to completely straighten out their bowels, but I think the rest was much needed.
    I do hope she feels much better soon. It is so worrying when they are unwell.

    Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts. She moped around most of today but did perk up and eat something tonight so I think she is feeling better. She has her acupuncture tomorrow anyway so we'll see the vet. I hate to see her like that - she looks so pathetic.

    Oh I'm glad Ilsa is improving. I'm sure the acupuncture will help also.
