I'm so sorry. :frown: He really didn't seem that bad off from what you're describing. This sucks.

So it is parvo. Is he giving oral metronidazole? With him vomiting it should be an injectable. You don't want him vomiting it back up. Honestly, if it was my dog I would have him stay AT THE HOSPITAL, even if I don't have the money up front. If they are willing to work with you on payment this is a ...

Eh I'm just "armchair quarterbacking" and i don't even have medical training, so it's even less accurate. LOL! I don't have any formal training either, I've been a kennel assistant almost 2 years at the clinic I work at, and I deal with parvo firsthand. Not pretty. The worst case I rememb...

Oh it's certainly a possibility. I re-read the first post and it didn't indicate an age. I don't want to shoot down anyone's theories. :thumbsup: I have seen parvo quite a few times in older puppies like 7 to 12 months that haven't been vaccinated. They tend to get it really bad for some reason. Par...

I'm not an expert, but I think his abdomen looks really distended in the first picture, almost like he's bloated.

Dogs CAN get parvo even if they have had all their shots, and even as adults. Not eating, the trots and being lethargic are some symptoms that parvo will have. Is he vomiting at all? Bloat will do the same thing, both can only be treatable by a vet, IMO. Toby ate mushrooms and regurgitated all food...

I'm curious to know what happened, too. I was also bitten by a pit bull, but not badly.

It happened when I opened the door to his run and he just overpowered me and then proceeded to cage-fight another dog. He bit me because he was worked up about the other dog.

Yeah... that sounds about normal, actually. I've had a dog go into heat at 6 months, but we kept her inside and spayed her right after.

I attended the meeting and I'm currently in the process of writing letters to those on the task force. I'm trying to include as many informational links and articles as I can.

Microchips are injected under the skin at a vet's office, usually between the shoulder blades. When the chip is scanned, the owner's information shows up on the scanner. There are different companies that have different scanners, so choose wisely. Get a well known brand, like Avid. Most shelters I k...
