Bacca is sick and at the Emergency Vet

Mom is worried sick, and of course, so am I. She called me earlier and said Bacca was very quiet. He was not moving around at all, wouldn't get up, and then he started shaking. She said he ate his dinner, but slowly, but then seemed to go downhill after that. She took him to the emergency vet. They tested for lyme and it isn't that. He has a high fever and very low white blood cell count. I went over to meet up with them and he didn't even look at me or get up to see me. Mom passed him into my arms and he just sunk into my chest. We left him at the emergency vet. They said it could be an infection of some sort that his white blood cells are trying to fight off too hard. They were putting him on IV fluid and antibiotics. Has anyone ever had anything like this wrong with their dogs? Any ideas of what this could be? We are very worried. Please say a prayer for him to be better soon!!

How scary! Keeping little Bacca in my prayers tonight. Hopefully, he'll bounce right back. Let us know what they find...

Hope things are going better...

When Daisy was young I read on the internet that tea tree oil applied to itches helps...she then displayed exactly what you are speaking about. We took her the the ER for dogs and found out that it is a poison. They called poison control and learned about Tea Tree Oil poisoning in small dogs and cats. Tea Tree oil should never be applied directly as she licked it off and stopped moving. They did a transfusion and saved her.

Riki was once quite sick as a puppy for a different reason, he had ingested pillow stuffing.

Hopefully Bacca didn't get into something, thank goodness for vet care at times like this. Keep us posted.
