Default Sick chi.

My sister has a chihuahua. Heís about 10 months old. Never had any sickness. But heís suddenly not eating. And he barely drinks any water. He threw up last night but none since. And he is just very tired. He just lays around. Heís going to the vet first thing in the morning but does anyone have any idea what it could be? He is also peeing orange.

Sounds as if he is very dehydrated. Maybe hepatitis with the dark urine? Let us know what the vet says please, we all care.

Thank you for replying! The vet said that his temperature and hydration are fine. They gave him a nausea shot and an antibiotic. The vet tested his stool and said he had high levels of bacteria more than likely due to eating garbage of some sort. But that he will be fine and if for some reason he isnít better by Monday to bring him back! My sister said when they got home he jumped from the car and ran inside to his water so thatís a really good sign!

That dog weighs only a pound and a half? Maybe that is when you got him home, but he sure looks more like 4-6 pounds now.

I'm glad that it was 'just' an upset tummy, and nothing more serious. These young pups sometimes put their owners through anguish thinking of more serious illnesses!

Thank you! Me too! Itís definitely scary! It made me so sad seeing him sick. It made me think a lot about Gizmo before he passed

No he is always a pound and a half when he is healthy. He wasnít even a pound when he was brought home. My chihuahua Sansa was weighed a week ago and sheís five and a half. She looks like a giant compared to him. And the vet weigh d him today he was only one pound due to losing a little weight.
