    Ezzie is not to well at the moment...not sure what is wrong... off to the vets in an hour.. ezzie is off her food.. been sick and even turns her milk and treats down...


    Have been treating her long standing ear infections... but she feels very warm to normal... hope the Vet can sort her out this afternoon... so hard when they cannot tell you what is wrong or where they have a pain etc.,

    waiting on Sue to get back from the vets

    I know she has had an antibiotic jab and is on tablets...

    Vet thinks she underlying Pyometria??? infection.. womb... gums are good colour.. if they get darker then we need to worry... had to get more ear drops..

    £56.73p without the tablets... Which we hold in stock ..same with metacalm pain killer for travelling.

    Not as bad as it could be...

    She is on 1,000 ml of antibiotics form tomorrow, twice a day... off red meat .. chicken in rice it seems.

    Have to keep an eye on her this coming weekend.

    But she is under the weather.

    Bob dont want to worry you, but please be ultra vigilant as far as watching ezzie's condition is concerned. We've lost a bitch to Pyometria (womb infection) before, she died within hours despite the vets efforts . Also another 2 had to have emergency hystorectomies to save their lives

    Its not just a case of antibiotics will definitely cure the infection, so watch out for discharge or any change in condition or consciousness. She and of course you are in our thoughts at this time

    Bob, it might be a good idea to spend a little time today or tomorrow finding a vet local to the show ground, that does weekend work. Get phone number and map location, or maybe one that could do emergency call out if necessary. Best to think ahead. I turn into even more of a basket case than normal when any of mine are ill. Not saying you are same of course.:Smile:

    Wow, I've just read up on this. Not good, not good at all. This will be a worry.

    personally I would not even consider going away in the van if my dogs are seriously unwell. I know that I am 17 minutes away from my vets (12 if I break the speed limit) and they are the people I know and trust my dog's life to. I certainly would not be rellying on any vet in an unknown area that I (and my dog) had never met and didnt know or have access to the clinical records of my dogs.

    In January this year (new years day) we had to rush one of ours to the emergency out of hours vets. They didnt know the medical history or particularly want to help when our dog collapsed. Xrays were taken that were of poor quality and the dog waqs given an injection of anti inflamatories, then we were sent away to see our own vet when they opened next day. It turned out that she had a cancerous growth on her pancreas and liver that was pulling on nerves. Poor little mite must of been in agony but got no pain killers until our vet examined her. She died 2 weeks later whilst being operated on to remove the cancer or at least relieve the pain and give her more time.:cry:

    so I certainly wouldnt trust any other vet again unless it was a true emergency. The dog's health and happiness comes first, and there is always another time we can go away in the van

    We had a GSD with this 20 years back

    We had a full blown one of these 20 years back on a GSD.. so know what it is like.. Our vet is happy for her to be out.. We will monitor it over the next few days.. we have ample antibiotics with us... and if there is any risk we will go nowhere. Tummy is soft .. that is good.. the gums are the right colour so that is good. She has had a large dose of antibiotics by injection... had some chicken and rice just now and still asked fro a treat from her box.. that is good.

    But we would not risk Ezzie for all the tea in China....

    Thanks for all the good wishes.

    Bob

    We are thinking of you all and especially Ezzie. Hope all turns out ok BOB. Really can't be doing with the dogs being unwell at all. They are part of us. Please keep us posted on how 'the little one' is doing.

    Love to you all

    the vets jab is kicking in

    The injection the vet administrated has started to kick in and Ezzie seems a lot better... in her usual place snoring on the settee.. we start on the 1000 ml of tablets x twice a day from the morning.. for the next 4 days...

    I hate to see her suffer, she is our world...

    Hi Bob!
    We're sorry to hear about Ezzie, but are keeping everything crossed that she will soon show signs of improvement.
    We know what it's like when your best four-legged friend is under the weather.
    Do keep us posted!
