Jabari Is Sick- He's Gone


Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago he had a seizure, but has been doing pretty well since then. But yesterday in the morning he wasn't his usual self, nothing dramatic, but i could tell something was off. By the time I got home from work he was clearly sick. He had trouble walking when I took him out to pee, and was shaking and hunched over with his tail tucked. He did eat dinner, but I had to carry him to his bowl when he's usually inches away waiting for me to put it down. After dinner, he seemed really lethargic so I took his temp. It was 104 so I called the closest ER vet and they said to bring him in. On the way to the vet I got really scared b/c he was hardly moving and his nose felt ice cold while his body was burning up. But once we got inside the vet he perked up a bit. All his vitals were good and he just had bloodwork after the seizure that all came back normal. So he got some IV fluids and Rimadyl and she sent us home. He slept through the night but is still lethargic this morning, and did not want breakfast. His temp is 103.3. I'm going to call my reg vet and see if she thinks I should bring him in.

 

Any good thoughts for my little man are welcome. I am SO scared. He turns 14 in 2 months. Thankfully i have some wonderful friends who kept me from completely going off the deep end last night. But being a single dog mom is not fun in times of crisis.

 

My baby boy :heart

Oh Jabari, hope you feel better soon little man!

 

Lucy, I hope that this is just a passing thing and that he'll be on the mend soon. I'll be thinking of you both.

Good thought Jabari and you Lucy. Having sick pups is very stressful and I really your pack. I hope your little guy just has an infection.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.
