Unhappy My dog is sick.What's wrong with her? Help!

Loss of appetite for 3 weeks, brought 2 vet, had some injection and syrup.still not getting any better. off to vet again.this time high temperature of 39.7 degree celcius. Doc gave another jap and some anti pyretic capsule yesterday.this morning started vomitting greenish frothy vomitus(few times already), very weak looking, refused food totally,only sips of water, lost weight tremendously.i have never seen my dog like this before.it's freaking me out,i'm so afraid of losing her. what's wrong with her? Pls help. What can i do? According to her vet, she had some sorta infection in the intestine. but she looks more serious than a litttle bit of infection...what could have gone wrong?

p/s: i tried feeding her some glucose.hope she could be alright.

Can't tell you whats wrong with her as I am not a vet, but try to keep her hydrated by giving her a bit of water/water+glucose (using a syringe) every 1-2 hrs. Hope your dog gets better :(

Hi there KellyC,
Iím sorry to hear that your dog isnít well. Although not a doctor Iíve dealt with my fair share of sick animals. One of the main things you need to be concerned about is keeping your dog well hydrated. The suggestion of using a syringe to administer water is a good one. Make a note of how much water you give and how often and then also keep track of when your dog urinates and or has a bowel movement.
You could also try to tempt your dog to eat and drink by boiling some chicken mince and then taking a small portion of the water and meat and mixing it with a little regular water, a little bit of plain rice and some mashed banana (the inside part of the banana like we would eat.. NOT the peel!) If she seems to like it and is interested only give her a very small amount and then wait at least 2 hours before you give her any more. You could also offer her a small amount of PLAIN yogurt (the kind that has the live bacteria in it) as the probiotics in it can help her digestive track. You could also talk to your vet about using slippery elm and/or marshmallow root to help sooth her stomach and digestive track. Did the doctor give you the name of the infection that is making your dog sick???? If you think she is getting worse or her symptoms change contact your vet straight away for guidance. Best of luck and I hope your girl is feeling better soon. *Mutt*

Thx to everyone's concern My dearie Hana is fully recovered now. The 1st 2 days she still vomitted greenish fluid and froth but turned slightly better on the 3rd day. I fed her glucose drink every few hours to restore her energy. It worked, she was able to walk around the house and played with her favorite teddy bear. On the 4th day i made her some boiled chicken, she manage to eat a small portion and I tried giving her some kibbles and she ate it without complaint! She has stopped eating kibbles long ago as she prefers canned food. I'm so glad she's willing to take kibbles cuz i think it's the best diet for a dog. And now *phew* i can lay back n relax...my Hana is back to her old self....

BTW Hana is almost 2 years old, 20 months to be exact. Her vet said it's some infection of the intestine, not parvo virus. Besides, she wasn't having diarrhea but was constipated instead
This spoilt brat is so choosy over her food, she doesn't like fruits and all dairy products. she's driving me nutz....but i still love her hehe
