Please I am asking everyone to pray for our little girl Nutmeg.She has been in a vet hospitial since last night.She began vomiting at home and I took her to a local vet and she called me with the bad news from the lab work that she was anemic and her kidneys were failing. .She said the only thing we could try was taking her to a 24 hr vet hospital.We drove over an hour getting there, she is on iv fluids and an antibiotic.They are treating her as if she has Leptospirosis but they still aren't sure.She was drinking out of our small pond in the backyard and diggging dirt and eating it so she may have it or something else.We are so scared we might lose her.When I called today she was eating and walking around and not shivering anymore so were all praying she makes it through this.Please pray for our Nutmeg!!! She is such a beautiful girl!!! Thank you,Lori

Thank you for your support.She is doing a little better.She is eating and not vomiting and shivering.Her blood work looks better but her urine is still diluted and they want it more concentrated.She still has an iv but the last time I called the hospital to see how she was doing they said she was barking and wanting attention and behaving like a puppy,so that's good news.Still praying for a complete recovery and the day we can take her home.Thanks again,Lori
