I have a puppy that is not eating she is a 9 week old pug she has been fine until this afternoon. She has been staggering around like she is drunk and she seems to be very congested and feels like maybe she is even running a temp. She also will occasionally have the shivers I am figuring this is coming from the fever maybe. I am going to call the vet first thing in the morning to carry her in to be checked but I just wanted to ask and see if anyone else has ever had this to happen before? The only thing that I can think of that I have done differently is yesterday I gave her a bath and dried her. I am hoping that she didnt get to hot under the dryer and then the AC in the house give her a cold. If anyone can please let me know if maybe they have experienced this before or not I would appreicate it alot. I have been trying to give her fluids very little at a time with a syringe because she has not seemed very interested in eating or drinking and I dont want her to become dehydrated.
I definitely think it's a good idea to try and keep fluids in her until you can get her to the vet. Try mixing a bit of sugar into the water as well.
Has she gone potty at all? Peeing, pooping? Make sure and take a stool sample into the vet's office with you if she does go, to be on teh safe side. I don't think dogs get colds like that, so can't really guess what the problem is.
