    Hiya....me again,Could I pick a few of your brains please??
    Penny isn't well at all she hasn't been since last night but this morning she's been worse. just had her to the vets and never saw our usual one because it was a emergency appointment.
    She started yesterday aftenoon with being tired and when I went to move her on her lead she wouldn't,I turned round and she wes still on her side trying to lay down.....she also wont sit on her bum/has a temprature and is generally unwell and sleepy....anyway, the vet said it's an infection, gave her an antibiotic injection to last 2 days and a pain killer injection. What does she mean by infection do you think?? I've also been told to starve her for 24 hrs which she doesn't mind because she's off her food anyway....She's drinking ok and fully wormed/flead and vax'd....just not with it and sleeping a lot

    To be honest, a dog can react like that with just a bad tummy ache.
    You have seen the vet and it's just a case of wait and see, hopefully she will get better, but if not, don't hesitate to go back to the vet

    if your not satisfied with the vets diagnosis i would get a 2nd opinion, has she been drinking more than usual? and is she going to the toilet ok?

    Alfie's temperature goes up when he's not feeling well, doesn't mean it's serious.
    Fingers crossed
