I know with me, its not that I care what size she is, but more a curiosty, as well as health concerns. If I knew her parentage, and knew what size she'd likely be, then I'd know more if something is wrong. Our 6-7 month old baby hasn't grown much either up or out since we got her. It'd be nice to kn...

I know hun. I wanted to try too. But then I thought of all she must be going through, confused, and unable to move where she wanted, when she wanted. And we did try. We got almost 0 sleep this weekend trying, and it still wasn't enough. I don't think we could have done anything more. I'm glad I let ...

yes, since friday, doxycycline. And the vet opens at 8am tomorrow morning, so its back up there to see how well she's doing and maybe get a blood transfusion. She's continuing to do okay. She's well enough that she's getting picky about how/where she sleeps. If she's not in a comfortable position, s...

I must thank Skoth, I think you saved the puppy's life.

Your suggestions about keeping her mouth closed and working her throat helped us get 3 tsp of food and 4 syringes of liquid in this morning.

She's already doing better than last night, and I'm back to cautious optimism.

THANK YOU!

Canine Ehrlichiosis is what she's got.

vet said her hemoglobin was at 10-14% i think he didnt suggest an iv/hospitalization cause she's so small.. 1.5lbs.

no emergency number on the vet's card though.

no, not at all.

other thing we were wondering is if pushing only pedialyte was a bad thing? should we be alternating it with plain water?

Well the little girl is doing much much better than her brother did at this stage. She's up and walking around, and is in fairly good spirits. Her brother couldn't even walk. Another difference is that she's fighting us with the syringe. At this stage, her brother just laid back and let us do whatev...

I'm so glad we were able to help save him.. he's gorgeous! :inlove: :inlove:

If we just hadn't decided to keep the new little girl, I'd be begging hubby to see if he could be shipped to El Paso! :))
