    Sorry for your loss...

    My only idea for Gussy is if you have a friend that is petless that can look after him for you.

    Hi, i've just read this thread. Firstly, I'm sorry to hear about your dad, and congrats on doing such a fantastic job with poor little Gus.

    I just wanted to mention that some vets will board dogs so that may be an option so your OH can go with you.

    Oh boy he is cute as... hope all goes well for you in the days ahead... looking at the pic it would appear also that you pup is down on his pasterns, front feet.... I've found Vitamin C helps with that.. just give him one tablet morning and night...

    Some vets do boarding. Explain your situation to your vet and ask for help or recommendations. Also places like RSPCA and AWL do boarding and they also have quarantine - I'm hoping the "reputable shelter" you write about is not one of those. Anyway you could also ask them for help.

    It's not ideal for your pup but he should still be alive and well when you get back.

    Ooo... Here's a side on view of him taken earlier. He *hates* the cold outside, and tends to hunch up when outside - just been looking at him in the bathroom and didn't think he looked down on his pasterns, then checked this pic and now I'm not sure - expert feedback please, and also, what dose of vit C?

    He is a gorgeous pup!

    He might be down a bit on his front pasterns as Kimba said...nothing some good quality food can't fix

    I would only give him a 500mg Vit C once a day to begin with...too much Vit C can give them diarrhorea. When you can see he is ok with the tablets and they are not affecting his tummy...you can go to 2 tablets a day.

    ETA: Vitamin C is given to help the body absorb calcium in the foods given...to help him with his pasterns
