I recently posted a thread about my Benson who had been trembling. Last night he started again and he was salivating.... (not drooling as we all know it). I rushed him to the hospital at 11pm. They took his temperature right away. It was 107.2. His organs were shutting down. The doctor told me that the highest they usually see is in the 103 range when a sick dog comes in. He was admitted into critical care right away. They put a fan on him and they gave him oxygen right away, and started an IV. They came out from the back and asked me "about resussitation for him if something happens". I had to pay before any additional treatment.... (so I wrote a check which was the size of my mortgage payment) and they kept him all night. His temp went down to 105.5 within the first 2 hours of being there, then around 6am it was down to 103. I picked him up from the hospital at 9am and took him to my regular vet as instructed by them and I have now brought him home. He has 2 strong antibiotics and no diagnosis. They did blood work, an ultrasound of the stomach, xrays of the chest and stomach, stool and urine samples... nothing has pinpointed the problem. He is not shaking now but he has been sleeping since I brought him home. ***The 2 things that he has in addition to the high temp is elevated white blood count and low glucose with pale gums.** The vet at the hospital wrote " possible sepsis" on her report. Does anyone have any additonal ideas?? I have added Benson as my new avatar today so you all can see him. He will be 9 this month. I am blessed that he is still with me.
