At this stage it will probably be tomoro before we know bloods , to be honest Iím not sure what blood tests were done I know she got blood tests done when she was in for the IV but that was in house testing whereas these ones are being sent to a lab so hopefully they will be more accurate and extensive
The blood in her stool can definitely be related to tense tummy and groaning. All of these can be symptoms of various GI problems. Regarding food, when you fed Cesarís, was it chicken? If so, you might try boiled ground turkey instead of boiled chicken. It turns out that chicken can actually cause GI problems in dogs.

Oh no I'm so sorry, I just left a post about your precious little girl on your other thread
It breaks my heart that she's going through this, I hope you find out what's causing this
Caesar dog food isn't a high quality food, I hope you consider something different after your vet finds what's going on with your precious baby.

Sorry peeps meant to update yesterday ,

Katie is doing very well still , temperature still under control , blood tests came back everything looks perfect , had another scan today just to make sure everything was still Ok in there and everything still looks good

The vets where we have got a brilliant service from have done all they can , so the next step if the fever strikes again is referral to a larger hospital where they will do more tests , we are hoping and praying it might have just been a viral thing that has passed by now but the vet has said she has also seen these things being cyclical so we aren’t getting our hopes up yet , she’s bounding around this evening it’s great to see it and gives us hope

Thanks for all the info I’ll update again Over the weekend as that seems to be the time when the fever strikes !

Just a quick update all still good here , temperature staying stable since last Monday which is brilliant don’t want to tempt fate to say we are out of the woods yet but things are good at the moment ,

Could that shot of steroid have fixed whatever it was I wonder ?

Wonderful news! Glad to hear Katie is doing better and that her temperature is stable. I know how scary it can be when our little fluffs are sick . Hoping this good news continues! Thoughts and prayers with you and Katie.

I am hopeful that this was a virus---or a food allergy. I think you have had good advice so won't add to it. Just want you to know you are in my thoughts & prayers along w/your baby girl. All the best to you & please keep us in the loop!

Spoke too soon shivering back , temp back up to 38.9 normally around 38.3

Gave a steroid as all vets are closed over the holiday here so it’s time for a referral to the hospital now to try and get to the bottom of this

I hate the thoughts of sending her to a hospital for a week tho she will hate it !

They shouldnít have to keep her for a week for testing, unless they admit her because sheís doing poorly.
A good IMS will know exactly what to test for during a visit.

Did they check her for tick borne disease.
Other than fever, what are her symptoms?
