    haemobartonellosis don´t really seem to fit the bill either since the dog among other things kepts it appetite. It still wanted to eat at the end it just seemed to hurt to much. However it still had appetite and ate soft food such as banana. It was also active in defending its food to the end.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    how was his/hers muscle control towards the end?

    reason I ask is my yellow lab did something similar, no blood but he was going to be 7 that year, 3 months before we put him down he passed a clean bill of health from the vet(who is a lab guru) two weeks before christmas we put him down, autopsy revealed his entire left side of his brain was cancer.

    I am sorry for your families loss and the loss of your furry family member.

    Sorry if I am repeating anything, and very very sorry for your loss. Could he have gotten into any rat or mouse poison. Vit K is used because they cause internal bleeding. Also, sometimes the vacs you give an animal will give them the thing you are trying to protect agianst. Becuase you are interducing the virus into thier body. It is more common when giving multible vacs at once. Though I doesn't sound like parvo. Sounds more like poisoning.

    I may be completely wrong and I seriously hope I am but I lost a couple dogs to similar symptoms within a month of each other and it ended up being a crazy old neighbor feeding them ground beef and anti-freeze. The bleeding from the nose first, then completely stopped up and breathing through mouth. It ate the throat lining out so when he finally died he had no way of closing off his throat and couldnt seperate food or water from air when eating always choking himself. It was a terrible ordeal. I hope you dont have neighbors like that

    I'm so sorry William. It could just be that he didn't have the strongest immune system and the infection just did him in. If it was a resistant strain of bacteria, that would do it too...

    Sometimes it just happens...and there is no concrete explanation.

    We have consider rat poision but it simply no way he could have gotten to that. I haven´t used any for a long time and it is stored save. It also had´t been outside the yard for a while due to the injured foot which meant no walks. I do agree with poison being one of the best fits which is why I suspect the toads (or one of the other dangerous animals here)

    I do not think it is a neighbour. Everyone here loves pure bred dogs.

    And yes the reason we administered vitmin K was to stop bleeding.

    I don't know have a clue as to what could've happened, but I just wanted to say that I'm sorry to hear about Kaiser.

    what seems most likely to me is that the infection on his foot spread. It sounded pretty nasty if it was causing necrosis. The infection probably became systemic before the antibiotics were administered. This can cause the body to go into septic shock causing the body to vasucularize and perhaps caused the blood leaking from the nose.

    https://health.google.com/health/ref/Septic+shock

    Also would explain the loss of balance, gum infection, and labored breathing. This can lead to organ failure which is probably what did him in. It's very hard to say what bacteria exactly without blood work done.

    Edit: Not quite sure since the infection seemed to clear up but maybe organs(liver?) were damaged beyond repair before the infection could be cleared.

    Very sorry for your loss

    So sorry to hear about your pup. Sounds like he died from septic shock.

    Septic schock would fit somewhat well if it wasn´t for the timeline. The infection in the foot healed and the soars healed, new skinned had started to form etc before any of the new problems appeared. We have atleast 3-4 days between the infection in the foot have gone down to the point where no signs could be seen and before the new symptoms started.

    However there are no doubt that it was a nasty bacteria he got in the foot due to the necrosis that went almost straight through the paw.

    I did not answer earlier about muscle control. It is hard to say. It might have been affected but it really seemed more like he was to tired to stand for long times than he had musce control issues. And regardless this improved again before his demise.

    all in all it seems very much like antifreeze (fits all symptoms) but there is none in the house and I sincerely doubt any neighbours have it either since this is a tropical country and it isn´t used much allthough it can be found. It is sometimes used to keep temp down. The usuall way to poision a dog here is to use crushed glass. Maybe some animal poison here acts similar.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.
