Thats a picture of my poor boys belly….not pretty and today is the first day since his surgery he started acting like himself. It put a smile on my face 🙂
Can someone tell me how to post pictures?
Thank you Susan
I was really scared and I’m not in the medical field so I went along with the vet of course hoping they were taking the best course of action. To be truthful they were first concerned with how they were going to get paid and put my baby’s treatment on hold until they had a credit card and $500 deposit.
This just tore me up because the estimate for treatment the day was $950 which consisted of a hospital stay and putting him on IV fluids and administering medications and one x-ray which showed nothing. They told me I could pick him up at 5:30 and he was doing better to just keep an eye on him. I could see he was not better but just stabilized to go home.
I was terrified because this was Sunday night and his last meal which he vomited all of it Friday night. When we got home he would not eat and barely was drinking water and he was shaking while laying and sleeping again.
I called the vet next morning and told them I would be there w/in 30 minutes they said ok.
When my dog Quasimodo and I got there we were put in a room for almost an hour and no vet or tech came into check on us. I was really getting upset so I decided to take Quasi out for a walk to see if he could poop. He did urinate a little and ate some grass. I went back into the vets office and they said the tech had come in but since I was not in the room they had to move on and that I was on the overflow list. I asked them when could I come back so that a vet could see my dog and they said 3:00 that day.
I was searching for answers because I felt lie the vet was not really treating this urgently.
I saw the vet Dr Weaver and told her I thought there was a blockage and what could they do to check that’s when they did the ultrasound of his organs and say the blockage. She indicated they need to do surgery Now! and again they wanted a credit card and to be paid in full $1250 first.
The rest is history and hopefully my dog will not have too hard of a time for the next 14 days and recoup well.
They did say feed chicken and rice and gave me a can of food. He finally had his first poop the second day after surgery.
Have you ever heard of feeding a dog baby food my friend does this when her dog is sick.
I will try to post some pics
