My Dog is Still Unwell

It has been over a month when my dog was diagnosed with erlichiosis. The target date for her to get well is between 21-45 days. We are nearing 45 days and my dog still has jaundice. I have finally decided to bring my dog to the bigger city so we can get a second opinion if it is indeed erlichiosis. Bambee is a Japanese Spitz whom we adore so much. It breaks my heart so see her sick. The consolation that I have is that she eats well and is still active and playful. But I am so bothered with her dry nose - which is understandable because she is not well. Now the vet wants to have her creatinine and BUN taken and I'm not sure there is a facility here for that. We lack a real pet hospital here. Though this current vet is accredited nationally, there are still limitations. I just have to ask the airline if I can send my dog via cargo.

They don't allow pets inside the plane. I'm debating whether to travel by sea or air. But sea travel takes 5hrs and my dog will surely be stressed out vs. a 30-minute plane ride.

Not our local airlines. The most is for the pet to be an "excess baggage" and can go together with your check-in luggage. I will still try to verify though.

I am not at all familiar with this condition so I have no help or suggestions to give, I do hope your dog will be okay.

It has been awhile since this post. I do hope all is well with your dog today and that you have a good New Year 2016.
