Nibbler has been sick for over a week. Wednesday (the Dec 22nd) he started acting lethargic, he puked a few times, he barely responds to anything, he just sleeps or stares. He wont eat anything, we have tried everything all of his favorite things. He as lost 4 lbs and I can feel his bones. He shakes like crazy.
We took him to the vet Monday Dec 27th, Vet found nothing physically wrong, no temp, nothing obstructing his bowels, no ear infection, no seizures, and so on. Vet gave him an anti nausea shot and prescribed him some pills that are supposed to induce apatite. Neither has worked at all, Nibbler is puking yellow bile, because he has no food in his tummy, he still refuses to eat. I decided yesterday that I was not going to let my dog starve to death, so a few times a day I will opening his mouth and put little bits of peanut butter, yogurt or maple syrup in his mouth. I read that he might be shaking from lack of food and low blood sugar and maple syrup can help. But, he is just regressing more and more. He will still drink water a little bit. When I hold him he shakes, I can feel his bones. I am so scared.WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY BABY!
Nibbler was sick similar to this a few months ago, I was freaking out thinking it was PDE, I took him to the vet, got blood test done and all checked out, he was feeling better by the next day (blood test came back good) that time he was only sick a few days and he would still eat a little bit.
