I have a 10 year old toy poodle, up untill around the 8th of Jan she showed no signs of being sick she was in heat at this time... She was and had for about a week been drinking excessive amounts of water, when she did get sick it was after she had drank so much she threw up right after drinking but it was all water nothing else was in it.. she threw up one other time after that when she had drank water and there was bits of her dog food with it...She was only sick like that for one day.. After that she laid around and barely moved and when she did it was to get a drink of water and she drank excessivly and she didnt even want to go outside she use to play alot and jump up on the couch to lay down with me play with her treats but all she did at this time was lay and sleep she actually acted like she was dying to me.
The vet gave her an antibiotic shot and antibiotic pills she was in heat and he thought she may have a uterine infection. Returned the next day for blood work to check for uterine infection, diabeties and kidney function. Doing the course of taking the antibiotics she began to improve some wanting to kinda play alittle and wanting to go outside on her own without having to be picked up and taken out. Her stool sample showed she had hook worms the blood work ruled out diabeties ,he said her kidney function was normal. She acts alittle better, but she is not eating like she was before she got sick. She may eat here and there but its very little. He did check her teeth and said for her age they were in good shape.
Can the worms and the meds have an effect on her not eating.She wants to play at times and she jumps and down when it is time to go outside the only thing i notice is when she is sleeping she makes a muffled like coughing sound like one would make with your mouth closed..almost like a clearing of the throat kinda thing but muffled.
