Very sick dog....I don't want him to die

Posted by   + Show Post
And I'm not sure what to do about it. I have two four month old chihuahuas. One is sick. When I came home from work, he was just lying on the floor. He is awake but he will not get up. His breathing is labored and he has moaned a few times. Usually he is jumping with excitement when we get home. Today I barely got a tail wag. The one who is not sick is pacing frantically around her brother. They are extremely close. I don't want Rio to die :(

Have you seen anything like this before?

Also, his jaw was locked shut.

Thank you for trying to help. Also, thank you to those who sent me messages, it's nice to know that there are still good, kind people in this world.

It wasn't parvo. She said he's already been vaxed for it. I'm guessing strichnine or some kind of poison. That's the only thing that would cause paralysis.
