My name is Sam. I’m the proud mommy of Mr. Blue, a 2 mos old English Bulldog. I am from Manila, Philippines. I bought him from a kennel last weekend (Saturday to be exact Feb 12). When we got him, I noticed he had a cough and cold. He was up for his 3rd round of shots on Feb 14 (Monday) so the vet came and gave him meds for his cold but she could not give him his shots. By the afternoon on Monday he vomitted and I panicked. We rushed him to the hospital and after a few tests we were told he had distemper. I didnt know what that was and when the doctor explained it to me, I almost fainted.
I know hes only been with me a few days, but I love him dearly and would surely die if anything happened to him. The doctor (Vets in Practice) advised us of this donor dog treatment and I said yes, but needed to find a donor dog, in the meantime, they amped him with medication to treat his pneumonia, cought etc and meds for his immune system. We even got him a nebulizer to help him.
Yesterday we found a donor dog and well, today at 2pm we will getting our first shot. I am hoping that he gets better.
Its been 4 days since we found out he has distemper..Im not even sure how long hes had it…this morning he pooped twice and it was mostly water and phlegm and there was a tinge of blood. I hope we are not too late.
A vet went to visit just an hour ago and she said he had a fever. And looks so weak. He hasnt barked in 2 days. He just sleeps.
Your website has really given me hope that he will get better. Please let me know if you know of other things I can do to make him feel better.
