Anna,

I am very happy and relieved that sweet Becky is starting to feel better. I know that the mixup in medication is causing you stress, but it sounds like she is withdrawing from it well. Anytime there is a major operation, recovery will present itself with a lot of ups and downs.

Please find comfort in that she is feeling better and take care of yourself.

You need to do that for any future puppies the breeder has so their new parents don't go through the heartache and worry that you did. Her stating she never had a liver shunt puppy before might also lead others to not think of that as a possible diagnosis to look for and even cause a puppy to die if it's over looked...
You have no idea,maybe she did have pups with a history of liver shunt and who knows the outcomes?
Not everyone would be as diligent to follow up as you were...

The antibiotics most likely have killed all the good bacteria in her gut. That will cause a host of problems. So when she is eating - please start helping her replace those good bacteria.

If she's still on an antibiotic - I'd ask for a probiotic, and I'd give it to her 3 hours AFTER the antibiotic, giving it to her 2-3 times a day making sure that she gets it right before bed.

It's a myth that you can have too many probiotics. Your body will just stop the good stuff when it has enough. But being on heavy duty antibiotics myself, I am having to constantly replace the bacteria or I end up with yeast. People would be shocked at the amounts of probiotics I take daily.

The gut is the immune system. So help her get it back in order.

Hugs
I agree with Tori.. I do think some probiotics should be considered... talk over with the vet about this.
I'm so happy Becky is doing so much better.. this WONDRFUL news made my day!

Just saw your post about Becky feeling better and eating well.So great. I'm praying this is the beginning of a whole new life for you AND your little girl. If your breeder is in total denial that Becky had a liver shunt I would pull out all stops and post wherever you can about her dishonesty. Did you have any sort of health guarantee? Post a "review" of her wherever you can where people might find her and if she has a Canadian registry report her. Any breeder could produce a puppy with a shunt but to deny what the surgeon says and thus do nothing about it ...wondering if she'll breed the sire and dam again? is inexcusable. Do you think in hindsight she was a byb or agent for a mill? Does she currently show her dogs?
The good news is that Becky is doing better. Any new pix of her?

I just saw this now and cannot tell you how thrilled and happy to hear that little Becky is starting to eat and feel better already since the meds were straightened out. I am sure that she is on the road to complete recovery and will be just fine in no time.
