Sick pups

    I had a litter of 13 almost 5 weeks ago. They all have been doing great until I noticed one had a swollen eye with yellow discharge. I didn't think anything of it. I just cleaned the eye and sent her on her way. 24 hours later the dog is severely dehydrated and can't move or eat. She looks as if she hasn't had food or water in days but I saw her eating and drinking earlier in the day. She had abdominal discomfort, but no blood in her stool. I started her on fluids but she passed away 6 hours later. Now I have three more pups with swollen eyes. I started them on antibiotics and fluids. Has anyone encountered this?

    How about a vet visit before they all die, know one here is going to know what's wrong with your pups. GL

    I am sorry you must have misunderstood me. I am not asking if any one knows what it is. It's clear that they have an infection. I have a vet that comes to the house because most of my dogs are DA. They are getting all the care possible at this time with IV fluids and antibiotics. My question was if anyone has experienced this before. I am not asking for medical advice for the dogs I have just never seen this before and was wondering if other people have.

    Sorry to hear your pups are getting sick. Why do people always jump on others when they don't know what the fuck is going on? What did your vet say it was? I've never heard of this.


    Chances are ya might lose the whole litter,there is a infection going around that mimic's parvo,without the discharge,it attacks the lineing of the stomach/etc/etc...had a litter wiped out except for one,which was later pts.....try the fluids/etc on the strongest,and hope for the best if ya get thru a week or so,ya/they might get over it.....g-luck

    The vet test were inconclusive. It isn't parvo or distemper. The vet thinks its an infection like staph infection. I haven't lost any more but I have two that are fighting for there life. All of 12 of them are on antibiotics so hopefully it prevents anymore from contraction it.

    All 12 of the remaining pups are still alive. They are all still on antibiotics but only one is currently on IV fluids. They are back to being little pains in my butt.

    Glad to hear your pups are doing better MP. I hope they all go on to be everything you were hoping them to be. I currently have a litter of 7 week old pups who have got PARVO. I just hospitalized all 6 of them and now hope the vet can do what he can for them. It really is such a shame to see pups deteriorate so rapidly and then fade out. All the best with your litter my friend.
