Taking a moment to introduce myself - Steve in VA.

Recently acquired my third Rotti, first two passed naturally
previously,she is 10 weeks old, acquired in distress as a orphan at 4
weeks, we nursed her on goats milk, she was progressing very well
eating playing, etc. Second Vet exam at 8 weeks included a deworming
shot and first DHPPC vaccination.



Five days after vaccination on 1/22/06 lithargy, and a fever hit her
with subsequent diareha and then vomiting started. Immediately took her
to weekend Vet ER room, she had a 104.5 fever, white blood count was
down to 3.8 which put her at deaths door! Test for parvo was negative.
The Vet keep her overnight immediately put a IV in and her fever
started coming down within an hour. Next day she is back home back to
normal eating and playing, temp is normal. Vet has no explanation for
sickness-discounts my connection to vaccinations, she believe it was
some type of stomach virus subscribed amoxicillin for 5 days.



She is due for the second series vaccination on 2/7/06 boy will
we be nervous I hope she doesn't have any reaction again! That was real
scary! She is on Nutro Ultra food. Anyone had any similar
experiences any advice is welcome. This baby is so cute! A
real sweetie!

Hi Steve , Welcome ! glad to have you here . I myself have never had a bad experience like that with any of my Rottiesthank goodness. I would think if it was from the vaccine she would have had a reaction to it the next day? Also there is a stomach virus around that dogs can get and it makes them really sick babies ....Glad to hear she is doing well .....So what is your little girls name ? She's a lucky girl to have found you ...

making steady progress getting stronger everyday! Amazing how
quickly we fall in love with them and when they are sick I just

Steve, we do fall hard forthemdon't we ! I couldn't imagine my house without my 3 babies ! Sounds like Nyla is a strong little bugger
you'll have to post some pics of her soon....we love pics ! Did you read the post rutylr posted for you about titers ? ( Donna always has great info for us all ) Are you taking her back to the same vet that gave her the first shot ? I agree with Donna that maybe she might not need another shot right now especially since she got sick after the first one . And congrats on finding your new love in your life !!!

Colleen,

Yes I did read Donna's very valuable input and plan on both a delay,
titer test and making sure her white cell count is back to absolute
normal and steady for a period before any aditional innoculations
occur. How or where can I post a photo or two of her ... I already have
some real cute ones!

Very sincerely,

Steve

Posted photos of Nyla over on the Photos of Rottis section, the one of
her standing was taken the day she came home from the ER, her little
left leg is shaved from her very little IV. She's just a precious
little thing! Check out her photos with her big brother....he's 6 and
has never allowed another dog to join our family, believe me I've
tried! I was amazed at how quickly he fell for Nyla and has taken his
parenting role very seriously!
