Scooter is sick. :(

Scooter, our four year old doggy is sick. He started last night. He threw up like twice and diarea. We waited till today and he was even worse today and would not drink at all, very weak, fell over once, shallow breathing, and a very irregular and weak heart beat.

We took him to the vet this afternoon (4:30) and the vet gave us three different meds. One for the vomiting, one for the diahrea, and the other one was Amoxicillin an antibiotic. No food for 24hrs. Tomorrow, he can only have hamburgar and rice. A little bit of water here and there tonight and tomorrow. This morning my mom and I brought him in the house, well, he's confined into a mudroom, well it's very big but you know what I mean. We're leaving him in overnight. Hopefully he'll get over this quickly.

Thanks. The whole time my mom and dad were on the phone, I was holding Scooter crying and pleading for the Lord to make him be ok.

Thanks everyone. Scooter is still pretty much the same except he had just a tad bit of blood in his diahrea today. But only once. When my mom was a kid, she had a Beagle 'Prince' (Rest In Peace Prince). Prince was poisined and Scooter has ALL the symptoms Prince had. Not one symptom is different. Of course Prince survived through all four, thank goodness. We have som standing water in our backyard (darn rain ) and Scooter would keep escaping from his kennel. Well, the day before yesterday, he ran out of his kennel to the water and got a good amount. We call him and he doesn't come, so we go up to him and he runs to a different puddle, and we go up to him again and he goes into the garage (where his crate is kept). My dad is going out today to pick up some ground beef and some rice for Scooter. The vet said to feed that to him. We try and get his pills down him. We end up getting them down him like after 10-15 minutes.

Hopefully he'll get better soon and thanks everyone again for keeping your fingers crossed. I'm sure if Scooter had the strength to bark, he would in "thanks".

You must have been posting when I did, because I specifically looked for updates.
