Sick puppy


New Member

Yesterday I brought home a 7 week old Mini Dachshund from a women who just wanted these puppies to have a good home. It was one of my clients friends. After having him home for 10 min. I realized he couldn't walk, he was wobbly and couldn't stay up. I took him to the vet this morning and they are sort of puzzled. They said it's neurological, but they don't know what it is. Does anyone have any ideas? He's at the hospital over night on antibiotics, iv fluids and something to help his liver just in case. The vet said if he's not better by the morning we'll have to put him down. I'm so upset! Other than not being able to walk, his tale is wagging and he's cuddly and wants to play. I wonder if anyone has any ideas, and can you keep and care for a puppy with neurological problems. I don't want to put him down:( Any input would be appreciated.:(
