Bailey is a 72 pound spayed female pit bull, 6 years old. Bailey did go to the vet yesterday and he put her on antibiotics and ran some blood work. He does not know what's wrong and said to bring her back Thursday if she has not improved. So we will do that, but in the mean time I am so worried about her. Bailey was perfectly fine Sunday morning and by sunday evening she was not acting herself. we took her to the vet Monday morning. she is a house dog so we are very in tune what's normal for her. Here's her symptoms. Blood work: proteins slightly elevated globulin slightly elevated White cell high side of normal Symptoms: won't lay on side no vomiting no diarrhea (edit....normal stool Tuesday evening) very low appetite (can be enticed to eat if it's got gravy or something on it though) slight fever (according to vet) stands with head lower than body......does not want to raise it even parallel with body appears to stare off into space....almost like she is asleep standing up. possibly it hurts to lay down so she is reluctant to do so, but this is just a guess. gets excited and acts much better when her people come home, but quickly goes back to this "sick" behavior didn't get at all excited when the word "squirrel" was mentioned, and this usually puts her into a highly excited state As I think of more symptoms, I'll edit this. In the last couple of months, Bailey has gained a good bit of weight. She has always been a very thickly built dog and is stocky so she often looked fat even if you could still feel her ribs. but lately I have noticed she looks even thicker, like she has internal fat. You can still feel her ribs but not quite as well.....there is more of a fat layer on top. She has been on a diet for a couple of weeks to try to get her a little thinner. She gets 1 cup of premium kibble with 3/4 cup green beans twice a day. She ate her breakfast this morning with some venison stew mixed in and a good bit of hot water so it had a nice meaty gravy on it. So can someone please look at this and give me some ideas as to what's wrong with our beautiful Bailey? I am so afraid this may be very serious. bailey is such a strong stoic dog and for her to be acting this way really scares me. She would not act sick unless something is really, really off. Thanks so much. I am just so worried about our girl. edit Saturday. This morning Bailey woke up with signs that it's her spine for sure. She is stumbling on her back legs, and her back end is wobbly. Her gait is off too. As upsetting as this is, at least we know what's wrong now and can begin proper treatment. So she is on steriods and pain killers for a while with very limited activity and no exercise. She should show some results by Monday.
