After lunch, Jeremy texted me and said Deuce was shaking and not looking good. I left work and came home to take him to the vet. He had a temperature and the vet wanted to give him an iv and some antibiotics to get his temp down. I left and was to come back a couple hours later.
When I arrived later, the vet met with me and said that Deuce was in bad shape after I left. They had put in the iv and he started having trouble breathing. The vet said he turned blue!!! So they sedated him and put in a breathing tube and he pinked up. They waited til I got there to wake him up from the sedation. My mom had come to the vet to be with me and we went back together.
Deuce was shaking and breathing hard. Not in as much distress as he was earlier, but not his normal breathing. I was able to take him home but was to call the number to the vet if anything happened. We got home and he did eat a little food. I had some wet dog food that I opened and gave to him. But wouldn't eat the rest of the night.
This morning he still wouldn't eat any food, but he did drink some water. He is moving very slowly and I can tell he still doens't feel well at all. I pray that he gets better as the day goes on.
