A Little Puppy Virus
Nothing serious, just a few upchucks and a general lethargy for about 24 hours. Must be what was wrong with the little guy who made the trip to the emergency room the other night. Thank goodness it PROBABLY wasn't a reaction to the wormer (which they all had again last night and get tonight) or to the Advantage. Both of those are things the pups are most likely going to have to deal with all their lives. About half the litter has already been through it and this afternoon there are a couple more who stayed put when I opened the pen to let them out... one didn't even bother to look at me. He/she just grunted when I lifted him to change the papers he was lying on and then went back to sleep. None of them are feverish or even particularly crabby... and the rest are running around, playing, just like normal. It IS marginally quieter around here for the time being!
