    Sorry to hear your pup is still sick, and the vet did not give you any idea what's wrong. The first thing I would do is find another vet. A vet that tells me he doesn't know what else can be done, just does not set well with me. There has to be a reason he is so sick. Also have you tried just giving him a very little food at a time? Maybe a bite or two and see how it goes? We will keep him in our prayers that he will get better, and grow up to be a beautiful bully.

    @BrooklynStar I've been away from the internet and I haven't had a chance to read all of the new posts on this thread yet but I will. I wanted to answer the pedialyte question asap.

    I give Abby pedialyte every day with her meals as part of her therapy but it can be given any time there is vomiting or diarrhea to replace the electrolytes their bodies lose. I give it in place of water when she is sick. It doesn't have to be plain either. Abby loves the fruit flavors, I think grape is her favorite. Mixed berry is mine, I love it when she smells like a fruit cup

    I am going to go back and read what I missed now. But please know what you and Dozer are in my prayers.

    ...edit...
    The doctors in Tinton Falls are fabulous! If you can get her there I am sure they can help Dozer. I don't know where in Brooklyn you are but Red Bank Veterinary is only about 30 miles from the Outerbridge Crossing.

    Give him the pedialyte (it's on sale at CVS this week... $3.52 a bottle for the store brand - I'm stocking up!). Give him HOT showers. I would try feeding him a tablespoon of food at a time. He hasn't lost his appetite, that in itself is a positive sign. A tablespoon of food every half an hour and see if he can keep that down. There were times I would sit on the kitchen floor with Abby and let her lick the applesauce from my fingers to get food in her.

    The single most important thing that you can do is stay positive! Dozer feels your strength and energy and he feeds off of it. You stay positive for that baby and he WILL be fine!

    You know, I can't help but wonder if Dozer and Abby came from the same store. I don't know where the lady I got Abby from got her, but she lived in Queens.

    So sorry to read that your pup's still fighting this....my only thought with him not being able to keep his food down is to give him less more frequently (which I think you said your doing) and if it's kibble soak it beforehand to make it easier for him to digest until his system is back to normal....hang in there....hugs and good thoughts for you both.

    I agree with @Davidh a different vet should be first on the to do list. As for the lemon, myself, I wouldn't give that to a dog that has pneumonia, that's for a dog choking on phloem from being over heated. And a plastic lemon that squirts. Please keep me updated

    Hi @Twice

    Thanks for the warm wishes and the advice...it means a lot however, I went out and bought Pedialyte and he puked it out right away He only eats ice chips at this point, but he did take a few gulps of water this morning.

    I know it's been a couple of days since I followed up with you guys, I am sorry. I have been really busy over here. I think Dozer is starting to feel better...he has been keeping his food down (so far). As per the vet's suggestion we have been crushing his medicine up and mixing it with his Vet's Bland Diet formula mixed with some Nature's Variety Instinct Kibble; and he has been holding it, although he still has a cough that sounds congested. I'm not sure if he is better though, because there was a period of time last week were we thought he was holding his food for 1 or 2 days, but eventually puked it all out.

    I feel so bad for him, he eats and then wants to play but the vet said to not make him run around after he eats...it's really hard to supress that instinct in him, so we have to keep him close by on the a leash to prevent that...he cant have any of his chew toys either, so he is extremely restless and bored. I feel so bad for him, this little guy has been through so much in his short life, and yesterday we tried to put him in his kennel after he pooped/peed and once we left the room he started bugging out and pooped all over his crate. I never seen so much poop and he pooped fairly good about 10 mins before we put him in there. I was only gone for maybe 20 seconds but I never seen so much poop, I think he has or is developing seperation anxietiy. Either that, or when he was at the vet's for 3 days they had him on IV and in the kennel so he must of been pooping/peeing in there. I know it's not his fault, he must be so confused. Although I must say, when he is out of his kennel, even when he was really sick he would poop/pee and even puke on the wee wee pads. He's very smart!!!

    In any case, we are going back to the vet Thursday for another X-ray and check up...hopefully we get good news. I am hoping that once he gets his last shot we are able to put his restlessness as ease with toys and walks through the neighborhood. I just feel like this illness has taken us 100 steps back...I hope he doesnt develop seperation anxiety because 4 days out of the week he will be alone for about 4-5 hours. And it will really stink, literally, to come home and see him covered in his own feces. In the mean time I hired a local neighborhood girl to watch him for those hours while we are out. She has 3 dogs of her own so she knows what she is doing and we trust her.

    I'll let you guys knows what the Vet says on Thursday.

    Thanks!

    Considering I thought Bengay was my toothpaste this morning -- yes, lol I am absolutely exhausted. It's for a great cause though, we're just experiencing some growing pains. As he ages and we train him it'll get better, but beating this illness is priority number 1 now

    Holy crap. I don't know how I missed this thread. I am so happy that Dozer is getting better - he is right?

    I also hope that you take some kind of legal action with that pet store. They need to stop getting pups from lowlife puppy mills or backyard breeder idiots (or whatever they're doing) and they need to be held accountable for what's occurred here; even if that just means negative press. Mom being a lawyer is just toooooo awesome to not take advantage of. Even small claims court can be painful for them. Do you have a guy on TV like we do here in Seattle? "Get Jesse" is a guy who helps people out that have been wronged and then the whole thing ends up on TV. There's another idea for you. I am a "Yelper" - so I always start there.....

    Right now, you're focused on Dozer - of course. As it should be.
