actually only a piece of the train wreck that is life right now ...
Sampson is feeling PUNK right now - came home to a crate full of vomit, pale gums, a lethargic pooch

he is thirsty but pukes up whatever he drinks
won't eat

I am in regular contact with his vet (who is hoping he ate something and it will pass) but I'm not optimistic

I am also dealing with a critically ill rabbit, step father and father in law ...


good thoughts for sampson PLEASE as I just can't take much more right now

thanks

andrea

Good thoughts. Is the vet going to give him IV fluids? By that I mean injecting teh fluids into the extra skin in the ruff of the dog's neck and not the continuous drip.

still pale but brighter ... snoozing instead of lying staring with open eyes .. had a good pee

half cup of water every half hour has stayed down for nearly 2 hours... which is a good sign
I'm pretty sure it isn't bloat or torsion - he is not painful, belly isn't distended
could be a block but doesn't quite fit the profile
could be a perforation I suppose - or knowing my luck something weird and expensive to discover and treat ...

vet is hoping he's allergic to one of my other dogs (she's been coveting Thea for years) but I doubt I'll get off that lightly

thanks for the thoughts - I start at the vets in the am ...

sammo is brighter this morning - he's pale but in shades of pink not the blue of last night

vet appointment @ 9:45 for work up rather than being sitting on her door step at opening

apparently the power of JL good thoughts continues.. thanks
