Saving Papi #3 – No Distemper. Yaaayyy!!

Posted: July 14, 2010 in Woof Woof

Yesterday we went to 2nd vet to get the 2nd opinion on Papi’s condition.

At first, the vet expected Canine Distemper. So we asked him run the test. We’re soooo relief to know she is CDV negative 🙂

But the vet said she is 10% dehydrated. And she might suffering a nerve/brain damage because she couldn’t control and balance her body. All her 4 legs are stiff as she is paralysis. The vet advised us to put her to sleep. After taking hours to think and discussed with Mr Am and called a friend to get some opinion, i decided to give her a chance to live. I will try my best to save her.

We took the puppy home, placed her at the pantry (the only space we have and well-ventilated). Set the cage for her. So here she is. At HOME. I hope it will helps to speed her recovery.

Today, we went to a nearby vet, Dr T. She helped us prepared the IV fluid set. She did some physical and urine test. There’s some infection and over protein in her urine.

We drove home with the IV fluid set. The puppy will be on drip for 3 days. She put on Elizabeth collar to prevent the puppy from chewing the bandage. But tomorrow i need to take her to the vet to make sure there’s no swollen or bruises on the IV area.

I pray for miracle. Please pray with me.

    It sounds like Papi is a fighter, and so are you. Is there maybe a blanket you could give to her, to make her more comfortable? I hope that her dehydration and infection are quickly resolved, and she can start truly healing. I will be thinking of you both.

      Thanx Nicole,
      Papi looks like having a serious injury under the rib (stomach area), thighs and pelvic bone. She shows some pain everytime i touch that area.

      She is a strong girl. She shows some progress from time to time.. Kinda bit slow recovery, but at least there’s a progress.
