Jinx Update

This is a spin off from the diarrhea thread.

Jinx had a horrible case of diarrhea all day yesterday along with some vomiting. My breeder (the wonderful Janet from Yuppy Puppy) worked with me on keeping him hydrated.

Today he was so lethargic that I took him to the vet. He is suffering from stress related diarrhea. They put him on an IV and gave him some medication to ease his stomach.

Since Jinx is still losing fluid from both ends and he's so small, Janet and I decided in the long run that it's best for the vet to keep him overnight on an IV drip so he can get what he needs. There will be a dedicated nurse staying with him all night.

I can't tell you how wonderful Janet's been through this entire ordeal including talking directly to the vet and helping out with the cost. If you plan on getting another puppy, you can't go wrong with Janet (and she has some available right now!)

I'll update in the morning.

I hope little Jinx is feeling better soon. I'm sure they're taking good care of her at the vets. That is great that you have had such wonderful support from your breeder - that means a lot when your tiny pup is sick.

Poor little guy. But it sounds like he is getting the appropriate care. That is awesome, the support you are getting from Janet! I hope you can get some sleep tonight and that Jinx will be feeling much better by tomorrow.

Good to know he is in good hands. Better for him to get the drip and rest, and the nurse attending to him.
I will be thinking about Jinx and your family all night.
