Unwell puppy

8 month old cocker spaniel. This week she got hold of a cuddly toy and destroyed it - stuffing everywhere. That evening she vomited, had a temperature and was obviously unwell.

Phoned vets and they told me to bring her in. She had x-rays (nothing showed up), anti sickness jabs and put on drip for 24 hours. Once she was keeping food down they let me bring her home.

Friday she was still really lethargic, off her food and had diarrhoea. Same on Sat so I took her back to vet. He had a feel, said he couldn’t feel anything, put her on gastrointestinal pills and said see how it goes.

The rest of the weekend has been hell as she is so droopy and sad - she just wants to cuddle all the time. Normally she’s really hyper so it is such a contrast.

Would really appreciate any advice or help. I’m worried sick about her sad

Oh bless her. How worrying. Surely eating something wouldn’t cause a high temperature? (I’m no vet!)
Have they done bloods? Is she vaccinated? They’re such a worry.

You've taken her to the vets repeatedly and they've checked her and can't find anything to worry about.
Your pup is almost certainly going to be fine in a couple of days. She's been very sick and had diarrhoea, so isn't going to have much fuel in the tank, she probably feels a bit tired and sorry for herself.
Just keep her warm and comfortable, lots of cuddles and ring the vet if you're still worried tomorrow.

Thanks so much for responding. They did bloods which were normal. She’s had all vaccinations including KC.

Daft question alert! Is she spayed? Could it be related to a season?

Not a daft question at all - I asked vet the same thing.

He thought not as she’s not showing any other symptoms. She hasn’t had her 1st season yet so hasn’t been spayed.

Our beagle was absolutely awful when she was coming into season. Just miserable and really down.
We'd originally thought we might not slay her if her season wasn't a drama.
My god, we booked that appointment faster than lightening after the first time!!

SPAY not slay obviously!!!

I’m always asking daft questions. grin
I only mention it as our girl isn’t spayed and had an awful phantom after her first season.
Can’t be an infection if bloods ok? Eaten something?
I remember our girl had catastrophic upset tum (similar age?). I took her for a walk and had to come back for a bucket of water after she did a poo. blush
What are you feeding?
Hope pup is feeling better soon.
