Wow, thanks for the nice wishes. She has tick fever. Her temperature was nearly 106 (102 is normal for dogs) and the vet gave her the first dosage of pills which she threw up 30 minutes later.

The good news is we caught it very early and she should be fine in a few days with the treatment.
Just hope she is. Right now very lethargic, mopey, and will not eat still.

I wish you all the best. I have 2 min-pins (inside dogs) 2 mixed breeds (outside dogs that I rescued) and 2 horses that are my family. If anything ever happened to either one of them I don't know what I would do. My mother horse is 23 years young. I've had her since she was 4 months old. She's gone through 2 marriages and 2 moves with me. I've always told the guys, don't make me choose between you or my horse....I still have my horse! laugh

...when out pooches had tick fever last year (all rather severe cases) they show all but immediate signs of improvement a day after they received initial injection/were put on a cycle of antibiotics... Wish your pooch the same speedy recovery!!! Two of our dogs are husky mixes... VERY touch combing for ticks in their coat. One place to keep careful watch of is in between the toes on dogs front paws... seems to be a favorite place for ticks to hide!

K / If she keeps vomiting up the medicine and thus getting weaker, you might need to administer the first few doses by injection. It's not hard to give your own shots, especially when she is so weak and surely won't put up a fight. She'll sense you are helping her. Just lift up the scruff of her neck and inject. She is a large breed and their necks are tough. The vet will give you instructions if the shot needs to go into muscle. I give all our "dog family" the yearly shots that can be purchased at the feed store or some vets (rabies not available). Maybe a suppository form of the medication is available or at least something to keep her from vomiting. Karmin won't be too pleased about that approach, but at this point, whatever works to get it in her system! You are a good Mom. My heart goes out to you. It is so hard to see your dog child so sick. She is going to be better real soon!
