I just got my Yorkshire terrier yesterday, and she was fine. We went shopping for her things, and when we came back, she just started sleeping, she wouldn't even eat. This morning, when I picked her up, she wouldn't stand. She would just lie there. I tried feeding her again, and she still wouldn't eat. Even now she's just lying there, eyes open. When we first got her, she would shake all over, scared.
I was scared something was wrong with her eyes, so I tried scaring her, seeing if she would shake. She didn't. And what scares me most is that she won't move, she won't eat, and I don't know what's going on. Please help me, I just got her yesterday!!!
Also, she already had two bouts of diarrhea. She's very quiet, she hadn't barked or whimpered at all. And then I just heard her whimper, and I smelled it. And I knew something was wrong. Dogs aren't suppose to have diarrhea. So what does this mean?
Take her to the vet. In my opinion, it wasn't at all necessary to have her out shopping. Especially if she is a puppy and it was a place she could have had contact with germs from other animals. If she is a puppy, that is exactly how they catch parvo.
Even though you just got her yesterday, you must already care about her so why let her suffer? You know this is not how a dog is supposed to act. If the money is the issue, you shouldn't have gotten the dog in the first place because things happen with dogs and they need basic vet care as well.
Make sure she is at least getting liquids if you have to, get a syringe (the type you use to give babies medicine orally) and put it in her mouth slowly pushing down until she drinks it but you should be taking her to an emergency vet. She could go downhill quickly, especially if she is already dehydrated.
"You know, I've given the matter some thought, and I think I'd be willing to be a house pet to a race of super intelligent aliens."
The person who sold us the dog said that she took the dog to the vet. Apparently, the vet said that there was nothing wrong with her and that she was just scared. She told us that she was still very little and young and she got scared. Is this true?
If you do not get that dog to a vet imedatly, it could be dead by morning. It doesn't matter why it is having aproblem, it is suffereing with an ailment of some sort. It doesn't matter if she took the dog to the vet 1hr before you picked it up, it is sick now. The reason is pointless.
Either go to the vet now, or wait til morning and possibly go with a dead dog. Sugar shock is from not eating and drinking, and will kill within 24hrs. It is very common in little dogs. The choice is yours.
im assuming she probably only had her 1st set of shots and you shouldnt of taken her anywhere until shes had all of her set. take her vet immediately because from what you are saying it sounds like shell be dead soon if you dont!!! contact the breeder you bought her from. if they are a reputable breeder they will give you your money back if its something that she caught while with them, if its a back yard breeder this is a hard lesson your learning the hard way hope she is ok!!!!!!
