LULU Update!

First of all Thank you Guys for your support! This past week was a nightmare with lots of ups and downs and I can finally say the we are over the worst. So first of all we named the little pup and we went with Lulubell, but Lulu for short. Not a huge fan of the name but my husband loved it so I figured I could live with it. My last post I was at a point where we were uncertain if the little one was going to make it but I can now say that she's healthy and doing well. Not only were we dealing with Parvo we were also dealing with hypoglycemia. Basically her body can't regulate blood sugar and it gets very low.

Here's a little backstory of some of the things we went through. The vet told us if she gets past day 4 of her parvo treatment she was pretty much golden and well on day 4 she was fine I even took her to the vet to get checked out and on the way home after work she had a seizure in the car and well several more followed that night and it was so bad that on Friday of last week I took her to the vet because i seriously thought we were gonna have to have her put to sleep since she was unresponsive from the seizures. It was a tough night I didn't get any sleep. Well took her to the vet and once they checked her temp she instantly perked up(hah yes glad the thermometer up the butt trick worked!). I knew there was still some fight in her so we left her there for the day to get some fluids and glucose and at the end of the day we came and got her and she was well not looking great, she was still out of it for the most part but I took her home and every 45 mins through the whole night I rubbed nutra-cal on her gums and she finally came too around 3am and even ate a lot on her own. They had to shave the fur off her front legs to put a catheter in, so she looks like she's wearing some Ugg Boots, it also looks like two toothpicks in marshmallows.  My vet is open on Saturday so we dropped her off for some more fluids and she was pretty spunky. I admit since I got her on the 7th I haven't had much sleep but things have started to calm down. She hasn't had a seizure since last Friday morning. She isn't throwing up and she's pretty much over the parvo. I am looking forward to the future with little Lulu.  Now she's pretty much over the worst but now that she's more puppy like she's turned into a whiner crybaby so I went from being up all night because she was sick to being up almost all night because she's whining and howling. Yesterday was one of the first nights I got some sleep since she is starting to give up on the whining. I'm so jealous of my husband since he is able to sleep through all this. Sorry my story telling on this sucks so exhausted but so glad to still have little Lulu around. I've got some more cute pics of her and a little video of her before her vet visit on Saturday. hopefully I'll get back to regular posting sometime soon.  I would not have been able to get through this if it wasn't for the help of the amazing Vets and staff at Richland Creek Animal Clinic here in Greenville. They are amazing caring people and helped me save my little Lulu!

  1. I am soo happy she's ok. I cried when I read your first post (animal lover) And when you hadn't posted as often I was very worried. I'm happy for you and her that she seems to be fine. And the video was very cute too. XD

  10. I'm glad she's doing better, but I still can't believe that the seller would do that to you and your mother in the first place. Sounds like a lawsuit from Judge Judy just waiting to happen to me!

  13. So glad to hear she is going to get through this. She is so cute. Hard to take on a new pet that ends up having major health issues with vet bills. Not everyone who are pet parents can deal with that. Kudos to you. She is lucky to have you for her mom.

  18. Your story touched my heart because I have two Pomeranians myself, one name Tiger and my other name Lila. Hearing about that tiny little dog, sick ):  Sometimes you just ask yourself, why is this innocent little soul sick. I''m so happy to hear about her recovering.

    The pic with her sleeping on your boyfriend made me laugh! SO ADORABLE!

  23. I've just read the backstory about Honey, Lulu and the poor little puppy that didn't make it, I cried for your loss of Honey and for all the trauma you and your Mum have been through with the Poms. I'm thrilled to hear Lulu is much better, and she's so gorgeous, but the breeder ought to be so ashamed of herself. She must have dogs that are not vaccinated, or exposed her dogs to them, it makes me wonder how many other poor animals have been sick or died due to her negligence. I know returning your money and paying the bills won't make up for the heartache but she should still do it. Sending you best wishes from the U.K, please pass them on to your Mum too. Btw, I love the blog.

    1. Aww thank you Alison for your comment! I didn't do anything about the breeder , she returned my mothers payment but didn't help pay any of the bills. Its a shame people like that exist but i've put it behind me. Lulu is such a spunky character that you'd never know she was sick. Thank you for all the love!
