|Molly arrived here 10 days ago. We were absolutely adamant about not using the house training pads and had decided that we'd take her out every 30-60 minutes to eliminate. It was working perfectly, and at 7 1/2 weeks, Molly was already going to the door when she had to "have a break".
Three days after she came home, Molly became very ill, and had to spend some time (4 days) at the vets on an IV drip; recieving antibiotics and dextrose as needed to regulate her sugars. She's now home, but still on oral antibiotics and with a depressed immune system, the vet has suggested that she stay indoors until she's had her next set of shots.
And thus, the tittle of my conversation topic.
We're a little bit upset that the housebreaking that was going so well has had to stop so suddenly. Molly was using the puppy pads 100% of the time for the first day and a half that she was home, but in the last day and a half, she's started to seek other places to void.
Has anyone else had a situation similar to this?
We're changing the pads each time they're soiled, is this too much?
Will I ever have my nearly housebroken puppy back?
Any suggestions/comments are welcome!
