UPDATE MON AM:
Vet tech reports that Zena had a good night. Is drinking a little water this am; which she said most of their post surgical dogs with that surgery won't do. That's my girl! They will start her on Reglan shots today and possibly introduce a tiny bit of food later, if she is continuing to do as well. Good thing because I had a dream she was an angel at 2:30 am...boy did I start praying hard! I'm sure they knew who was on the other end of the phone when it rang at 7am! Thanks again and keep up those prayers, wonderful friends!
UPDATE: She held steady in surgery; vet said her BP stayed at 137/80 and all her vitals look good. She did have a small area that it perforated. They had to remove 6 inches and resection. Vet feels she did a good job flushing the bowels but please continue to pray that no infection sets in; which is what they worry about with this. She is doped up and sleeping but holding steady. Thank you guys!
My Zena is in surgery from a blockage from a piece of marrow bone!
Dutch will sometimes pop off a piece (He is a massive chewer) and I pick it up and toss it. I'm assuming he popped off a piece and Zena grabbed it before I saw it. She started vomiting Sat. pm; seemed better yesterday so I gave her some chicken broth and applesauce and then that came up later in the day. Last night she was sick all night so off to the vet. They immediately put her on an IV drip, did bloodwork and an xray that revealed the hunk of bone.
Please send prayers and good thoughts for my Zena girl!
She's my yellow girl in the siggy pic.
