    hi everyone, if anyone who has a shih tzu can help me

    I recently had to take my shih tzu puppy to the Emergency vet because he was shaking was bubbling at the mouth wouldn't eat or drink was very tired all weekend and couldn't of left it until morning. what could this be, the vets put it down to having a fever. they are going to give IVF into him + extra treatment if he needs it. he was recently diagnosed with IBD and pyloric stenosis + non regenerative anemia and needs his bloods checking again

    he has had his 8 & 12 week puppy shots so i don't think it could be distemper or parvo virus

    so going to ring tomorrow morning and see whats up with him + my 4yr old Bichon is now not well could there be something going around?

    thanks you
    any answers are welcome and would be helpful to me

    Got to agree with Argent I have said several times ask for a refferal to a specialist, you have the university teaching veterinary hospital in liverpool too I gave you a link to it previously.

    I would also add that I still think his Non regenerative Anaemia is at the root of his problems too, or rather the reason for the Anaemia there are several causes and they need if they havent to find out why he has it and what form.
