My 10 month old male Patch is at the vets on IV's antibiotics and fluids , he is responding ok thank god. The vet cant give me a reason for this infection. I cut my own fire wood and Patch is in the woods with me every trip, could he have drank bad water ?
I'm afraid he could get sick agian from who knows what :?:
 Any suggestions , please fire away I'm desperate to know how to keep him safe from this happening again.

Hi and welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear of Patch's illness. I've personally never had to go through this, but here is a link with some hopefully useful information for you. I hope Patch is feeling better and is home with you very soon.  :wink:

Thanks for the site , very informative , not very comforting.
With the lords will Patch wont have to much permanent damage and at least come home.
   Theres no chance of contacting antifreeze here, but the neighbors on either side of my place do there own auto maintinance, I will be making some inspections tomorrow.

Good Luck. I do hope you find out what happened. Maybe Patch did get into some antifreeze that was spilled on the ground.  :?
Sending Patch some ((((healing vibes)))) and hope he comes home soon.

It's otherwise known as "The Famous Boxer Kidney Bean".  Every boxer I've ever come across has done it.  It shows they're excited.

Glad to hear Patch is home and hopefully that's the end of it.

so glad to hear your dog is OK!  it is so frustrating to not know what's wrong and 8 million dollars later, you still don't have an answer.

So very glad he's doing well!  He will gain back his weight soon enough as long as he's eating again.

Glad to hear that Patch is doing better..The weight will come back, just let it be slowly, it's healthier....Yea, there's nothing like being greeted by a couple boxers doing the kidney bean, aka sausaging, pretzeling... :lol:
