My brother in the local news paper with blitz one of the sick dogs. Again, these dogs aren't just hobbies or toys for us nor do we not take good care of them. I just wanted help before my brother pulls into town and goes ballistics on my mom.

I'm confused about whose dogs these are. You said your mother has them because she loves them, but that they are actually your brother's and now he's going to go "ballistic" on her when he sees them?

To be honest, I cannot imagine perfectly healthy dogs losing a ton of weight in 2 weeks (now you say a week and a half), and developing sores and swollen limbs. Odds are they were slowly deteriorating and no one really noticed until it started getting serious. It's easy to let that happen when you see an animal daily.

I'm glad you called the vet. Please keep us updated on what you find out.

What's confusing is that you need clarification on the ownership. They are my mother's dogs, most of them given by my brother. My brother lived with my mom until 2 months ago where he relocated to GA for veterinarian assistance schooling. My brother spazzed on me about my dog and I live way in FL. That's how he is when it comes to animals and pets.

It is hard to imagine and thats why I suggested poison!!

Ok will do.

A word of advice. Snarking at people trying to help you generally makes them less willing to help.

The reason some got so concerned when they heard the dogs were chained, and sick, is that we do get people on here asking for advice on dogs when the dogs are borderline neglected or abused, some flat out neglected. Two that leap to mind, one dog had a hole in it's mouth and the owner was refusing to take it to the vet, another was owned by the posters boyfriend's family and the dog was extremely sick, dying, yet the owner refused to take it to the vet. The list goes on and I can pull threads if you have a morbid sense of curiosity. A lot of us on here, myself included, have seen dogs chained in backyards that are rarely, if ever, let off the chain. They are treated like little more then living lawn ornaments, so the subject can be a touchy one with us.

I'm glad that's not the case with your mom's dogs and that y'all are going to get them vet care. I don't have any guesses, to offer since I have not heard of anything with that set of symptoms. Hopefully the vet will have some answers.

@icemaiden I think by 9 in 1 shot it think it is the Durvet Canine Spectra 9 Vaccine. It is not called a 9 in 1 as far as I know.

I defiantly agree with @Readwood that snarking isn't always the best way to receive help.

Thanks for the info on 9 in 1. Is it a combination of 9 vaccines in 1 dose?

We could have told the OP to go and Google his problems but we didn't. We offered advice.
