Today we noticed that Rocky wasn’t acting the same. He was all curled up in a ball most of the day, and didn’t even get up to try to go after us when we were driving up and down the driveway. He would only barely lift his head and watch us with no sign of interest. He didn’t perk his ears up, or even wag his tail. When he tried getting up to eat, his whole body was hunched over and his tail went between his lags. He barely touched his food, and we didn’t know what was wrong.
He was in such bad condition that my dad and two sisters took off with him to bring him to the vet. I didn’t even get to go with them because I was gone at a Tobogganing party that was going on. I only found out that they took him when I got back, and they were already gone by then. He looked so bad that my mom thought he might have parvo.
Later we got a call and we found out that the vet said he has severe dehydration. They also said that he might have ulcers, which I believe are sores in the stomach, but I’m not too sure. He was put on IV and was kept overnight. We are supposed to get a call tomorrow morning around 10:30 to get an update on how Rocky is doing, but I’ll be in school at that time. It will depend on whether he wants to fight or not if he is going to survive the night. All we can do is hope and pray.
