      Coccidia is somewhat common, so I wouldn't worry about it, after a few days of meds he sould be find. The problem is that with the meds for the Parvo more then likely it is what is causing his Coccidia, so once he is doing better on the meds and treatment for his Parvo I bet you'll notice he'll be back to his playful self again. Both of my boys have had Coccidia a few times, and after 3 days of meds it went away.. So keep your head up, and know that the vet is doing everything for him right now.

        I scanned your old post but couldn't find anything. Is this the boxer puppy you wanted?

          Nope....he is a Cocker Spaniel. We decided to wait until we got a house with a yard to get a Boxer. Cocker's are good indoor dogs.

          I am glad I saved him!

              Poor guy! Good thing he has you to care for him. I am sure he will come out just fine--he is young and has a healthy spirit on his side.

                Just talked to the vet tech and he is doing worse. He was shivering, but his temp was normal. He hasn't thrown up since 5am, he still has diarrhea but it is thickening up a little. They are giving him oral medicine for the coccidia, so it's important that he not throw up. He also isn't up wagging his tail like yesterday.

                She said sometimes they get worse before they get better....

                Visiting hours are from 2-4. I went yesterday at 2 but he was knocked out because of the pain medicine, so I am gonna go a little closer to 4 today and hopefully he will be a little more alert.

                      Ugh, coccidia! I've gone thru this with both cats and dogs. It is highly contagious. Poor boy. It involves lots of diarhea and it's no fun. I will pray for Jack to get thru all of this stuff. That breeder better get all her dogs to the vet - they will all have the same thing. GRRR.
