    DefaultGood thoughts for Abbey, please? She's not doing well :(

    She woke me up this morning at about 6:30am whining to go outside. I got right out of bed and took her, where she had horrible liquid stool. I didn't give her breakfast and gave her some Immodium (anti-diarrheal). A half hour later she threw up some of her dinner from last night with some bile.

    The whole day she was a little bit less active than normal, but not too bad. She was drinking a lot of water, but not enough.

    I took her to work with me in the afternoon and she had horrible bloody stool, pretty much pure blood. We gave her some medications and tried to get some IV meds into her, but her veins weren't cooperating and she was being pretty bad. Every time we would get close to getting into the vein, she would move.

    Finally we got a catheter in her neck after trying on every other leg multiple times. So she has a catheter in her and we were able to give the IV meds. She's on fluids at home over night and will go back to my vet in the morning.

    Cooking some chicken and rice for her to get her to eat, but I think she might turn her nose up to it.

    We would appreciate any good thoughts you can offer. I'm a worried momma!
