Paige is sick.
When we pulled her from animal control we noticed right away that her lymph nodes in her face were swollen.* She had just given birth in not the best conditions and was obviously under weight and stressed but at the time showed no other symptoms - we put her on clavamox and turned our attention to the puppies.
Well now you know that we lost all but one and honestly I'm not feeling to good about her either.
Anyway, Paige has not really wanted to eat in the last few dasy but today I was finally able to convince her to eat something and after pigging out she seemed to perk up.* Then the sneezing, gagging and coughing started.* Her nose is running like crazy and she must have drainage in her throat too - judging by all the gagging.* The poor dear just can't catch a break.* Her temp is just barely on the higher side of normal but it's obvious that she feels miserable.* Tonight she was so exhausted that she literally passed out at my feet and she was sleeping so deeply that it scared me.* When she sleeps you can hear the congestion in her sinuses.*
She wants to nurse her pup but then seems to get bothered by it and licks it right off her teat and she'll only nurse if I stay in the room with her.* The pup is a fighter and like all the others just hours before their passing, seems to be doing well but I'm afraid it will be the same story in the morning.* I doubt we'll get any sleep tonight - we'll be to worried about the pup.
Please continue to pray for Paige and her pup.
Good thoughts and prayers coming. Good luck tonight.
Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry for that poor girl, and for the stress you're going through. Are you working with a vet?
Lots and lots of good thoughts for her and her little puppy.

Sending thoughts and prayers for Paige and her baby.* I hope they make it!
I don't think I would let the puppy be with her if she's that sick. I sure hope gets better soon.
sending good thoughts to Page and her pup. I hope she can pull through.
Please let us know what the vet thinks. Maybe the pup should be pulled from her? Poor thing...I cant imagine all she has gone through.
prayers to Paige & her pup
Boy, you really are going through a tough experience. My heart goes out to you, Paige and the pup.
