Default Rocky II, for the people who asked :)

Hey everyone, I haven't been around too often. I've been spending a lot of time training ect.. From the last time I posted here, I picked him up from the hospitalization center and said he was doing better. Wrong, 4 vets later finally we find out. So heres a re-cap.

I noticed Rocko caughing a lot and not eating, so I took him to the first vet (COMPLETE IDIOT). He gives him Pepto-Bismal for stomach aches and says his coughing is just him *nervous* and Calorie Paste because he wasn't eating.

One week later, no result he's looking even worse.

I take him to another vet because I didn't want to risk my little pup's life with one vet so I wanted to see other perspectives. Immediately, he told me there is a respiratory infection. He takes a blood test gives me medicine and I take Rocko home.

2 Days later I get a call from the vet, Rocky must be hospitalized.

I take him to the hospital and visited him twice throughout the time he stayed. I took him home a week later, with him looking a lot better and I was given Chloro to give him for 3 week. This is where I left off everyone at the healthcare post.

Turns out I gave him 3 weeks of useless medicine, he was still caughing although he was eating now.

Finally, I take him to a vet my friend recommended. First thing he says is, "I can't believe they didn't even X-Ray this puppy."

Rocky was diagnosed with Pnuemonia.

It has been a little over a month now, of me spending any time I can with him. Giving him human inhalations (which worked extremely well), an anti-biotic and a pill to open up his bronchioles.

Rocky has been cough free for over a month now, and HE IS DRIVING ME NUTS. I love it.

He's laying here beside me sleeping on a warm blanket I setup near my bed.

Spent over 1,000$ curing my little buddy, and I couldn't give a sh** about the money. I'm glad he's now a puppy (Not by his size any more, weighing in at 27 lbs @ 4 months). After 3 of the hardest months of his young life he's finally back on his paws.

He plows down through Innova Dry Food and Wellness canned food like a lion.

Thanks everyone for the support, I'd be lost without you people.

Your post points out how very important it is to have a good vet, and how hard it is to find one. I'm so glad Rocky is better!!

So glad Rocky is better. He owes it all to you. You have been great to stick with him and work through it all. A lot of people would have just gave up and sent him off to the pound....but not you!!!! You make me proud to know you and Rocky....Sending Rocky my wishes of a very long and healthy life with you.

Looking foward to the pic's...
