Sick again

Jet is sick again. Friday morning I woke up to Jet not wanting to move at all. She had the same symptoms as last December when we almost lost her. I immediately took her to the vet. She is very stiff in her back end, high fever, high monosites on her blood test. We picked her up today as the clinic is mostly empty over the weekend and my vet though I could care for her at home and maybe get her to eat something. I was sent home with lots of drugs. She is still not better. A little brighter and some of her movement is back. But I just took her temp and it is still up. I am thinking she might be a little septic because since she has a hard time with her back end she has been unable to poop. But she also hasn't eat since Thursday night. Not sure what this mystery illness is or why it has came back.

Louanne ... this maybe totally unrelated, but did you happen to use "Revolution" on your dog Wed/Thurs?

Louanne it must be so hard, I hope that something is discovered. You should try something to boost her electrolytes like gatorade and water in a syringe for her to drink. Sometimes they feel more like eating when their energy is boosted a little. I will say some prayers for Jet! Thinking of you, Donna
