Thanks Beretw and Crazy.

No follow up yet. What my vet does is calls after a couple of days to see how the dog is doing, or I can call them if Shadow is getting worse and set up an appointment.

He's still not eating. This morning he wouldn't even try anything, and I offered him 3 different canned dog foods and his pumpkin. My poor baby boy.

I guess the question now is if, and when, I should take him in to be put to sleep, or if it'd be alright to just let him pass away at home. I'll ask the vet what he thinks when they call tomorrow.

So sorry to hear this Rain.

Does he seem uncomfortable? If not I might be inclined to keep him with you at home.

No, he doesn't seem uncomfortable, if he did I'd definitely be taking him back to the vet.

He's getting very weak, but right now can still get up and walk he just sways a bit and easily loses his balance. He's sleeping most of the time, when he's sleeping I can still pretend he's alright. He's still drinking like normal. He usually throws up once in the evening but that seems to be hunger pukes. He had bad diarrhea yesterday, but I know that was due to the cheap 9 Lives canned cat food that he ate a bit of the night before. I should have known better then to offer him that since it was such low quality and had poultry by product in it and Shadow has a chicken allergy, but I was desperate for him to eat something.
