Default Lilly has an upset tummy - update: Lilly has Parvo

So I'm not at home at the moment, but I just called to check on Lilly. My mam said that Lilly was herself all last nigh slept really well until 8am. When my mam got up to let Lilly out she went for a wee and a few mins later as always she asked to go out for a poo, unfortunately Lilly has a bit of diarrhoea. She was given a ginger biscuit but threw that up and didn't eat her breakfast! She won't stand to drink her water so my dad is using a syringe to give her 20ml every 15mins.

I have asked my mam to look for some natural probiotic yoghurt, so we can try that and we will also try some scrambled egg. My dad said that Lilly still wants to play but is feeling sorry for herself, and she was reacting when I called her name down the phone.

We think that one of her bonio's was bad as she had nothing different at all yesterday and was fine until this morning the bonio would have been the last thing she ate before bed.

I have pro fibre granules on order (I ordered them last night), and I can't see them being delivered before Tuesday/Wednesday, is there anything else we can do to help her out?

Thanks
Emma

To get dogs to drink I stir a teaspoonful of manuka honey into warm water, that usually works.

I would get her to the vet if you are worried that she has a blockage or is getting dehydrated etc. Otherwise I would starve her for 24 hours then give scrambled egg (no milk) with pro-fibre granules, and plenty of water. I'd think about giving some Panacur Granules too.

I'll give the manuka honey with warm water a shot when I head up, we don't think it's a blockage as she is able to go to the loo. Lilly was wormed on Monday using milbemax, so I don't think it's that. Right now the only thing we can put it down to is the bonio, so we had to throw 2 boxes because they got damp, we thought the other box was fine, but no so sure so we have thrown them all out!

It's the only thing we can think of, as Lilly was fine yesterday for her walk, played with my parents for most if the night. She has her bonio to go to bed so it was the very last thing she could have eaten.

I'll be heading home in 10mins so I will see how Lilly reacts when I get in, and if I don't think she is right I will call the vet.

Thanks Margaret, I don't think it's anything serious I got my usual Lilly welcome home. I've put some honey in her water but she wasn't interested, so we will continue to give her water via syringe until she does drink. She hasn't been sick or had diarrhea since about 10am and has been fine since. Hopefully this will be something that will pass on its own.

Truthfully... only been sick once...? Had the runs? refused one meal? is pretty perky otherwise...? I wouldn't be worrying. Just miss lunch if yoou give her it and try her again with a half portion for dinner... and i really wouldn't worry about syringing water into her mouth... honestly I wouldn't. When shes perky again she will drink.

If you pay too much special attention to a not very poorly dog they will tend to feel 'something is wrong!!!' by your vibes and get all introverted and needy. I'd just act completely normal and even if she refused dinner it wouldn't massively concern me. I bet if you cooked some chicken she would take your arm off at the shoulder for it! - lol ... but don't not till she has refused TWO normal meals.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

Lilly got worse as the day went on she was sick more and was sick after drinking her water, she refused her dinner too. We ended up at the vets, turns out there is a bug/virus going around, the vet had seen 10 dogs today with the same thing as Lilly. So she had an anti sickness injection, and some paste to add to her boiled rice and chicken diet for the next 3-5days.

Thanks, ahh it's awful she hasn't eaten at all and her water intake was low, literally only what we could syringe in, and when she was sick after water this afternoon, we phoned for advice and they asked to see her, unfortunately my vets was closed and their out of hours service with another vet would have cost £105 plus treatment, but we contacted another vet who was happy to see her and only charged £60 plus treatment costs.
