Poor baby… I’m at dentist, may have an extraction today. If I do I may not get to it very early tomorrow but I’ll always get there eventually. I’m praying for that sweet baby! How old is she now?
Penny Pucher
5 years old.
I feel for you about dental work. I have had 3 crowns and 2 root canals this year
Would this pic work?

Yes that’s good. So adorable. Definitely looks under the weather. I did not have the extraction unfortunately. I have to see yet another dentist this will be the fourth! For the same tooth.
Penny Pucher

Does your dog have flu? Watch for these symptoms:

  • Persistent cough
  • Nasal discharge – not a normal wet nose
  • Fever
  • Eye discharge – mucus-like discharge or a noticeable increase if your dog normally has eye discharge
  • Reduced appetite
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • Reduced activity, lethargy

If your dog has severe diarrhea and/or vomiting* please take them to see your Veterinarian as soon as possible. Hydration is critical; syringe water or administer Sub-Q fluids is your dog becomes severely dehydrated. A pet can die from lack of adequate fluids. Make sure to keep yours well hydrated under all circumstances, but especially when they are sick and not drinking adequate amounts of liquids.

Flavoring your pet’s water with a small amount of Apple Cider vinegar (with the mother), nutritional yeast, or a little meat juice or gravy can make them more likely to drink when they are sick.
