Hello Ashleigh, I’m sorry to hear this. You don’t say how old your dog is or if he is still eating and drinking. However, with symptoms like this you need to take him to a Vet urgently and have some tests done to see whats causing his weight loss. Please do take him,  weight loss like this means theres something serious going on.

Ashleigh please do NOT worm him at the moment unless you are 100% certain he has worms and they are causing his weight loss. You could make his problems worse and scouring his stomach with a wormer will not help him at all. Please do not put any further strain on his already weak system.  Please….you have to find the money from somehere to take him to a Vet. Borrow it, phone all the Vets see if they will let you have a payment plan….sell something..anything to get him to the Vet. If you don’t get this problem treated he… Read more »

As I said he will continue to go downhill unless you get this treated. Phone Animal Charities to see if they will help with the Vet bill…but he needs to see a Vet. Simply saying you are not rehoming him is not solving the problem …and you are not putting your dog first.

From the symptoms you described your dog needed a Vet urgently. He obviously had worms. I’m pleased hes recovered. I would advise anyone who cannot care for a sick dog properly i.e. take him or her to a Vet…then let him or her go to someone who can.
You should not have a dog if you cannot afford Vet fees.

We all panic with our first dog its a big responsibility having an animal.you love totally dependant on you. You won’t get unconditional love from a person like you get from a dog though….and its all worth it. You will learn as you go along like we all do…and 40 odd years down the line you’ll be answering questions on her too lol
I’m really pleased hes ok now and take care ok ?

Stop taking it so personally Ashleigh. Its the same as I would say to anyone who couldn’t afford Vet bills. It wasn’t intended to offend you. To answer your question, yes I’ve struggled too…like most people these days. I’ve had situations where my dig needed the Vet and I didn’t have the cash…but I’ve robbed Peter to pay Paul, begged and borrowed to get them there. When you get a job I think you should consider getting him Insured. You won’t have this situation then..Vet fees will be covered. As I said you should always put your dog and his… Read more »
