Cider's Update..

Got into the vet this afternoon. They don't know what's wrong with her. So many signs of not feeling well, but they don't all lead to one thing. So we had a full blood panel done, and they'll call tomorrow. Got a broad spectrum antibiotic in the mean time..

They are afraid she could be contagious yet they know we went to agility.. Out in the parking lot a rather large dog approached us pretty quickly and I'm like don't she's sick.. I re explain when he gets closer but his dog is already playing with Cider.. He tells me it's okay.. he's pts his dog in half an hour.

She was limping a little, I didn't ask why he was pts.. It just really upset me that it was okay for my sick dog to be on his dog cause she was being pts...

Poor Cider, I hope they have some answers soon! I know I've already said this but I really think you should contact your trainers and have them inform your classmates - whether or not your vet can confirm anything! At least that way, none of them will waste time if there dogs show signs of being sick for no reason. I wouldn't take Dodger in at the first sign of being run-down but if I KNEW he had been at risk of catching something (even if I didn't know what it was), I'd be at the vets right away.

I feel awful for that poor dog in the parking lot:sad:, that's terrible.

Let us know if the bloodwork has any answers!!! I hope Cider will be all better soon!

I'll have answers tomorrow, agility isn't till Thursday.. they figure the likelihood is low by now that she's able to spread stuff, but when you figure vet office clientel may be sick hence you are there.. they were minorly worried.

Guy and his dog really upset me though just something about the whole exchange... that it was okay if she was sick cause his dog was being pts anyhow.. he was upset about it but just it put me over the top Cider being sick and all and my mom was like omg what's wrong..

TD, I was afraid she might have Lyme disease.. so my 'original' thread about Cider was asking questions on Lyme, rather than just saying I think she's sick.

The other owners dog may have had some kind of cancer and maybe like I did with Callie increased the last dose of pain meds which may have made the dog at least feel better enough to want to play, and for the owner that moment seeing his dog want to play one last time was probably to most precious gift he could have gotten. With Callie her joy in life was running, because at first it was assumed the all she had according to xrays was torn ligament she had been prevented for running, and she had become very depressed she had no use of one hind leg her last 2 months the day that she went to they vets to be put to sleep I had increased her pain med, I had strapped her in the harness to help support her back her and I allowed her to run by jogging beside her and as she ran her face just lit up with joy and she came home and enjoyed a meal of milkbones and just before we walked into the vets office I did another jog with her and once done, she marched into the vets office just glowing with no fear at all and looked at the vet and me as though to say I am ready, I had never seen her look so content and relaxed in my life especially at the vets as she was that moment, she went onto to the bridge happy and not a trace of fear, when I think of that day now it is with a smile though any tears are simply from missing her, I wish I could have found a way to make my previous pets as happy and contented as she was in their last moments on earth, So even though that day was sad it was also very beautiful knowing she left this world a happy girl, that couple minutes of play with Cider may have allowed his dog to go to the bridge the same way, and provide his owner some peace and happy memories instead of recalling it only with painful memories.

That's really touching OG.. he seemed upset, and I wondered as I wandered off upset if that might be it, just I was all paro she'd make another doggie ill maybe. And then upon his reply on why it was alright I went into emotional mode, I don't know what the hell is wrong with me.. Otherwise I would have let them socialize a little more..

*bangs head on keyboard*
Honestly, what more can happen in two weeks? I get into bed, and I'm looking at Cider... and she has a tiny odd spot on her muzzle. I poke at it, it's a little small bald spot and the 'spot' is a little flakey...

I poke at it, and some of the surrounding hair pulls out.. OMG..
What the heck is wrong with my baby?? vet's calling with the bloodwork results today, guess I'll have a panick attack to her.. just ahhh damn it....

Whatever it is, she likely got it in NY. Her blood work came back all great..
Loosing fur sounds like a secondary infection the antibiotics should deal with..

Sounds more and more like a doggie cold that got pretty bad, but being viral there's not much they can do, except make sure she eats and drinks..

They are discounting Lyme for now, but if she shows symptoms I'm supposed to take her right in whether it be a week or 3 months from now.

I never really though dogs got colds.. I was plenty sick last winter... never her though. Makes me wonder if before traveling in future there's anything I can do to ward off her falling ill taking her to different environment though.

So you want to host the party of sickies or should I

She had enough energy to cause trouble off and on today
And while a pain in the butt, it's nice to know she's getting better. She's low key and sleepy tonight, but it's still an improvement.
