Unhappy Back to the vet with Duncan!

His diarrhea was not much better after 2 feedings of rice/chicken so I called this am and they said to bring him in.
THe vet gave him a shot,antimotility,to calm his intestines down and he is fasting till tomorrow am,with a little bit of honey a few times today.
Tomorrow he is to be started on Albon(sp?) and Flagyl for a week.
I am to go tomorrow with an update and back for a recheck next week.
My poor little guy.I think the shot really knocked him out.
The vet said for me not to be crazy with worry since this is very common in puppies,but somehow I cannot worry.He is my little "son". Please pray that he gets better real soon.
Thanks for listening.
Dot

Dot,

Don't worry too much, the vet is covering all basis with him. Albon will get rid of coccidia and flagyl will get rid of giardia. Did you bring stool sample to your vet?

I was going to bring a stool sample in but it was a watery!!But when the vet took his temp,sorry to say this,but it was all over the thermometer.
The vet kept telling me,"Mom,don't worry,this is common"but how can I not worry.Here I am with a puppy I have only had for 5 days and now he's sick.I know you may think this sounds stupid,but for some reason I feel this is my fault.My stomach is in knots and I just want to cry when I look at him just lying there.

Oh Dot my heart is with you. Riley is the first dog I have owned and I remember the first time he got sick, it was the scariest thing. Sending lots of Hava Kisses to you and Duncan to get well soon.

Poor Duncan. You probably feel a lot worse than he does. I can remember my first dog got diarrhea so bad, it had blood in it. It turned out to be a bad case of worms. I'm sure Duncan will be fine. Just give him some extra hugs and kisses from the Forum.

Poor Duncan, being sick is the worst, especially when they're so tiny. You're being a great mom and doing all the right things. He'll be up and feeling fine in no time We'll say an extra little prayer for you and Duncan tonight, best wishes and get some rest yourself!

Trust me it is not your fault . They are like kids they get sick .. Just like a baby when it gets its first bout of D& V .
You did all the right things and you took him to the Vet right away . He is now on medication and he will get better . It takes tome as he is a little guy ..
Cosmo got sick at Thanksgiving and I could not believe how fast he got sick .. He had to be hospitalized and get I/V's . I felt badly as well . The vet kept him overnight s he was young and he wanted him to be observed for 24 hours .. He was home the next day but still it was hard .. We still do not know what caused the illness he said it was just something going around ..
it will take him a couple of days but then he will be good as new .. They are like kids they bounce back ..
