My Poor Jazz is Sick!!

Jazz, our 9 year old beagle has been unwell on and off over the last few months. The most recent bout lasting for more than two weeks now. We have taken her to two vets on 6 different occasions and she has been on various medications but nothing is making her better and neither vet has a clue as to what is making her sick. Anyone who knows beagles knows they eat anything and everything but for the first time in her life Jazz was not eating anything for about 3 days and that's what really set the alarm bells ringing. Now she will only eat chicken breasts and soft chicken dog food very slowly but none of her usual foods. She is really struggling to get up and down the stairs, has diarrhea and  is peeing a lot. Her breathing is very rapid and after drinking or eating she coughs. She is just lying around and not her usual active self at all. I am very worried about her and wondered if anyone out there might have had similar problems with their dogs or might know what is wrong with her.

Sorry to hear about Jazz. I've never encountered this type of issue with Kess. Hopefully, you'll be able to find a vet that can diagnose the problem and treat it accordingly.

Thank you for your reply Kess and her Mama.

I really don't know what could be happen to Jazz.
I hope her Vet will find what is going on so she gets the right treatment.
My paws are crossed for her.
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Thank you Lorenza. Took her to an emergency animal hospital in the middle of the night. She has pneumonia! Took the third vet to find that out. So we got new antibiotics and we also have fingers and paws crossed that it will be the right one this time.

I hope that they found it in time! My mom could not think of what it might be. We just hope it is curable. We will be thinking of Jazz and crossing all our paws for her.

love & wags,
River

Thanks River. We have her in an oxygen box at home and she is on antibiotics and going to the vet everyday for a shot. I hope she will get over this and get back to being good old Jazz.

We will keep Jazz and your whole family in our prayers. Having a sick doggie is no fun. We will keep our paws crossed and before you know it Jazz will be back to her old self.

Lots of licks and prayers,

Bug & Bandit

How is Jazz? Did the meds work? I bet her tail is down most times when she was sick. That's how I know when Kess is not well.
