Very Worried

Our hananese Loki is 10 weeks old and we have had him two weeks. Yesterday he became lethargic. He was no better today. My husband took him to the vet this morning. He does not have parvovirus, or any type of parasite or worm. They cannot find anything wrong and have now given him a blood transfusion. They told us it was a 50/50 chance of surviving the night. Has anyone else experienced this with a new pup?

They can't find anything wrong, but gave him a blood transfusion? Is he bleeding internally? They had to have found something. Did he get into anything toxic?

Welcome , that is really sad. They didn't say why the transfusion?

Welcome. I am sorry to hear this. Did you contact the breeder?

I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you but I am hoping things turn around for you.

hugs and kisses to the fur kid.....xoxo

No they did not. I think the transfusion was because they couldn't figure out what it was.

Breeder said all other five pups are fine. Ours is the only one with trouble. Breeder is very reputable and is at a loss as well. What congenital defects do these dogs have?

oh my gosh! I am so sorry to read this... I can't figure out why they would do a blood transfusion if they didn't know what was wrong!??
