Was she a Yorkie also? If so, Yorkies are EXTREMELY tiny puppies, and not eating for even one day could cause a drop in blood sugar. If she had gone a couple of days without eating, it definitely could have killed her. It would not have been possible for her to have starved to death in a couple of days, but when a puppy is being weaned from its mother, its system is not yet totally "in gear" in terms of being on its own.
When he was 11 discovered heart murmur. Now I think we have trachea problem(common in little guys) A week of coughing fits, now today I smell really nasty odor. I think coming from his mouth. Checked his teeth and they are bad, but he is too old to go under. He is eating, going outside to do business, and wags his tail when dad comes home from work. I think age is taking its toll. Not sure I want to hear what the vet will say.
If Zeus would not be comfortable with that, then you might be able to bring him in for one day, take him home at night, and then bring him in again the next day. Extra fluids may help stabilize the kidneys, and help flush out some of the toxins that have accumulated. I know that some people have stated that after a kidney flush, their dogs seem to do discuss this "option" with your vet. In the meantime, I see that you have started SubQ's.
