My daughter has a new batch of poodle puppies and one of the little guys is sick. We have called the vet 3 times and finally he wants to see it. The first time we called is last week when the puppy through up after eating. Vet said he probably got over heated and over ate. Then we called last night and he was shaking, again vet said change in the weather and just keep him warm. Today he is eating but still shakes. Does get around the box with sibblings. We called the vet again and going tomorrow finally. I can't think what it could be. Puppy also does not like to be held. In the box he is fine but when you pick him up and hold him up right he really squacks. He has been very well taken care of mother is a good mother, feed the best,clean water, clean bed, clean room. When people have come to see the puppies and want to pet them my daughter makes them wash their hands. What could it be? What can we ask the vet to look for?
I have no idea, honestly. Your vet doesn't sound like someone I'd like though. Most vets, if you even mention a problem, they want you to bring the animal in to be on the safe side. Being put off repeatedly to me says 'time to get a new vet'. The shaking could be from being cold, or could be a minor nervous problem. If it's a nervous problem, it could explain why your puppy doesn't like being held. Maybe it feels overstimulated. Maybe it's frightened because you smell significantly different from it's mother, and puppies locate their mothers by smell throughout the first few weeks of their lives. Since your puppy is eating and moving, and interacting with the other puppies and mother alright, all of this may be stuff he eventually grows out of. But I'd be handling him as much as possible to get him over the handling problem. You may also want to keep him for a few weeks longer than the other puppies to make sure he doesn't have some sort of health issue that could cause problems for a prospective owner.
Thank you for the fast reply. I totally agree about the vet but its my daughters vet so I can only direct her. The puppy is a breeders pick puppy so we really do want him perfectly healthy. He is the cutes little thing. He can be getting over stimulated like you said because he is my daughters favorite so she goes to him first and tickles his tummy and so forth. he loves his belly to be rubbed. I will find out tomorrow and e-mail back to let you know what the vet said.
