My last post for the year 2014 (Almost)
My son (dog) has gotten sick on Sunday and we took him to the vet yesterday and the medication they gave him only made him worse. So this morning my brother took him back to the vet and they did all kinds of tests and deduced that he has a bacterial infection in his small intestine and put him on an antibiotic drip and kept him for a few hours and guess what? When he came back he was still not better, but gave my brother a pack of antibiotic medication to administer over the next few days.
Okay, I'm ranting, but I need to get this out. My dog hasn't eaten or drank anything in over two days. He still won't eat, not even chicken or steak or drink water to help save his life, not even when I force him (which makes him freak out by the way) and now I'm supposed to get this huge antibiotic pill down his throat? The vet told my brother that my son is not a social dog and he doesn't want to work with him, which is why he can't give him anymore antibiotics intravenously. My dog gets along fine with me and my family, as well as our two other dogs and even the cat. Of course he's extra grumpy because he's not feeling well and then I keep taking him to the vet to get experimented on. My son wants me to make it better and I don't know how.
The saddest part is watching him slip away right in front of my eyes and though I want to help, I don't know how. I tried forcing him to take the pill and he flipped out on me. It just stresses him out even more and I don't think adding stress to his already weakened condition is logical.
I'm sorry my last post is so heavy and depressing. But that is why I am ending my blogging year now. I'm going to focus on my son now and hope to comfort him any way I can and nurse him back to perfect health. Even my second round of rewrites will have to wait.
Once again, please have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and please take good care of yourselves. See you next year!
