I went out of town for a week and came home yesterday to find what I can basically describe as a horrific situation. The pet sitter I had hired had needed to leave earlier in the morning (about 7) and so I hired a neighbor to look after my guide dog in training and my other two dogs for the remainder of the time that I would be gone (roughly 10 hours, I got back at 5:30). It turns out the neighbor was extremely negligent and sent another member of her family to let my dogs out to potty. However, that other family member was only aware of my two dogs and not the guide in training, so the guide was trapped in his cage for 11 hours with no break while his friends were released and free (obvious stressor right there). I got home, and my puppy had relieved multiple times in his cage, was cowering in the corner from that, was covered in his own feces, and had been standing for who know's how many hours. He had to have a bath at 5:30 PM outside in the 50 degree weather because he's too big to fit in the tub, so he was pretty frozen even though I wrapped him in blankets and dried him while we were standing in as much sun as possible. Today he is a little shaky, extremely tired, his nose is running, and he is not eating and seems to be a bit dehydrated. This is all understandable, but he has begun sporadic panting in the last hour or so. My plan is to wait until tomorrow considering today is Easter sunday and the vet is closed, but I was wondering if there was anyone here who could tell me how to make him more comfortable today or if he even needs the vet? I think he's a bit under the weather today from the stress and the bath, though he seems better now than he was yesterday. Thanks!
