So i took a sick day today because Apple has been vomitting and had loose stool all of yesturday. She wasn't even keeping liquid in. i took her to the E-vet last night at twelve. She had xrays and blood work done. They did find obstruction in her tummy. This dog has an obsession about eating socks and underwears since a puppy. I have made it impossible to get into any of these things, but God forbid i take off my shoes and my sock comes off with it, she dives into the show grabs the sock and swallows it, she does this within a sec. So now no shoes are taken off with apple in the room.
Whats odd about all of this is she always passes it. She has a very strong stomach never threw up before. I opted to take her home stop feeding her and no water for the next twelve hours. They inserted her with iv fluids and am hoping that she passes this before i decide to operate. For some reason though i feel shes been vomiting like this because of something else. The sock she ate is tiny compared to the ones shes had in the past.
Shes been lethargic all morning, and i hate seeing her like this She's such a lively pup, and shes just been sleeping all morning... ugh its hard to be a dog mom when they're sick it really breaks my heart.
anyway hoping for some happy and healing thoughts for apple.
How's she doing this evening?

How's Apple doing? Hope she's feeling better this evening.. poor baby girl.
She's kept everything in so far! i let her drink at 12 then started feeding her 2 small spoons of rice at 3pm then 5 then 7. Shes still tired... All we need is that sock to come out the back end, and i'll be at total peace!
Sending good sock-poopy thoughts your way!
PS. Henery was Mr.Red in his litter!
Also sending good thoughts for socks to hit the ground real soon.
come on SOCK ... come on out .. so Apple can play
