Lovely little dogs of the Yorkshire Terrier breed are more and more conquering women's hearts. At the beginning of the 21st century, these dogs entered the rhythm of modern cities especially actively. And then one day my friend Marisha also became the happy owner of a small fluffy miracle. She was happy to share her personal experience in some of the problems that arise in keeping a Yorkshire Terrier. And this time we will consider the problems with the gastrointestinal tract of the Yorkie.
As owners of Yorkshire Terriers know, these cute creatures need the strictest diet, careful monitoring of food, all kinds of cutting through attempts to steal something tasty from the master's table or something worse - to eat something on the street. Since problems with the gastrointestinal tract, and especially pancreatitis or pancreatic diseases, are very common among Yorkies.
However, no matter how I watch my baby, from time to time he still manages to swallow something harmful or fatty, and then everything, as they say, “put out the light.” Cheerful, active, sticking his curious nose into everything, the guy turns into a lethargic, indifferent to everything that happens, the “most sick in the world” Yorkie.
What do I do in such cases?
- I constantly measure the temperature with an electronic thermometer (39 ° C is the norm, everything above is already bad).
- I remove food - the best medicine for the pancreas is hunger (but not more than a day).
- I dilute 1 teaspoon of atoxyl per 3 kg of animal weight in a glass of boiled water and begin to methodically drink the dog from a syringe once every half an hour (a syringe without a needle!). And I give to drink both day and night.
- A day later, you can start feeding the Yorkie - a teaspoon of canned food (the healing Royal Canin gastro intensinal helps me a lot).
But, if after a day the dog's health does not improve, the temperature does not drop - immediately to the veterinarian. Require a general blood test and blood biochemistry (all this is taken on an empty stomach). Hope my experience is helpful.
