BHRR's Autumn had a good night. Not a peep!
She definitely has a UTI and something is going on with her bowels – she had her first BM just now and it is sheer blood with some white foam.
She is going to need all those positive vibes people can send. We are off to the Vet today and despite how crappy she has to be feeling, she is wagging her tail, wanting to play with the other dogs(she has been integrated with most) and already has discovered the couch! NOT the doggie one at that! 😉
She had a small accident in her crate between 6:30 AM – 8:00 AM and I had already suspected she had a UTI last night as I did not like the colour nor smell of her urine. What I discovered in her crate really confirmed that…..poor baby…..
I am also looking over those nipples of hers and I cannot tell if she had a litter recently or………….. 🙁 So, we shall determine if she may be pregnant or a false pregnancy. Maybe, she is coming into a heat or just out of one yet…………..
We often see dogs that have given birth and then are dumped at shelters or in rescue…….none of the females have any 'interest' in her, so yet, her nipples are enlarged, enlarge vulva – both common after a heat or false pregnancy or after weaning a litter or in a pregnancy. Her nipples also have a small 'pocket' of swelling under them as if there was a milk production.
She is so emaciated….so young. 🙁
BHRR's Autumn really needs some extra warmth and kindness to come her way…….I shall have a file set-up for her at Kanata Animal Hospital as of Monday October 15th in the afternoon. I will be bringing her to work with me. I had hoped to give her a couple of days to settle in upon arrival, yet, she is in a very bad neglected state. VERY bad….
Kanata Animal Hospital (613) 836-2848 and they will take Visa, M/C and AMEX over the phone under the account of 'Birch Haven Rescue' for 'Autumn'. They will take Debit or Cash in person at 440 Hazeldean Road in Kanata, Ontario
