Just finished reading the thread and thought I would send a .

If the vet you contacted yesterday doesn't seem to give you the support you need, try contacting another.

Tate is very lucky to have you.

This is so sad





The shelter is aware of this problem right? I'm sure his littermates need medical attention as well.

most of these pounds(shelters - huh, that's a joke to call themselves a "shelter" like its a caring place ) don't care :

I've had dogs pulled from some of the most heinous of "shelters" around the U.S. & no most do not care..

C.mon, many shelters still use GASSING (yup, just like the Nazis did in WWII) to Euth their animals - it's a agonizing death...

anyway, I have lost sleep at night, crying b/c of many of these "Shelters"


please update us ASAP on Tate's condition & please re-read my post on what a great job you are doing

Sorry guys i was just trying to hold him as long as he would let me and be really still. Everytime i move he grunts and makes tiny whimpers. i'm not sure how he's doing. Sometimes he's just lifeless and its hard to tell if he's breathing, and he just stares. Then he'll muster up enough energy and change positions or walk a couple feet. But you can tell he's really really weak. I think i've cried all the tears i have. And i'm so exhausted i cant think straight. honestly im not sure he'll make it much longer. there's been so much blood and he's so skinny looking now. he refuses anything to eat and when i give him his meds he doesnt even try to fight me or lick it up. Somestimes i can hear him swallow, sometimes it just runs out of his mouth. I'm not sure what else to say, i'm tired.....but i'll update you if anything changes.

please call the Vet....

oh Mama - crying big tears with you.........

ugh....

see if you want to try 1 last ditch effort & have fluids via IV for him.... he might turn around... it's like a baby dehydrating..
he may need some help..

Sadly. if Tate is not gonna turn around, maybe he should not suffer - OH sh!t... it pains me to say that cuz I always think there is hope...

I know, i hate thinking that too. I know this poor little baby is in so much pain, and i really dont think he's dehydrated (not showing typical signs of it) so i'm not sure how much the sub-q iv will help. I dont know what would be best, but I think my instincts will tell me when enough is enough or there's no hope in saving him. Right now its just killing me knowing he's suffering and there's nothing i can do.
He's not even pooping anymore, just bleeding wherever he lays.
I've never had to put an animal to sleep, and i hope i dont have to do it today.

I've been thinking about you and your puppy a lot. I hope things get better, or at least that he doesn't suffer too much.

So heartwrenching.

I've been thinking of you and Tate. I'm also thinking of his littermate, and all the millions of innocent creatures who suffer and die alone, frightened, in shelters and on the streets, or in horrible homes and back yards. Tate is so fortunate to have you. Even if he passes away today, he'll do it in the safety and warmth of your arms. The poor little baby was taken away from his mother too, too early, but he'll have you now, whether he makes it or not. Maybe that's why you were sent to him, to help ease his suffering. Poor little guy.
