Stix n Brix, NC
Smudge didn’t have surgery today. The last time she ate anything was Monday. She started throwing up on Tuesday. That’s not all that unusual because she has a sensitive digestive tract. She still didn’t eat on Wednesday and was still sick so I canceled the surgery and got a can of Science Diet thinking that she might like it. Thursday afternoon she started with the bloody diarrhea so we took her to the vet this morning. She has pancreatitis. They kept her for a couple of hours to give her an IV catheterization with anti nausea and pain medicines. We’ll take her back first thing in the morning for more of the same.
She’s alert so the doc thinks she’ll be ok in a few days. She acted like she wanted to eat something while I was in the kitchen, but she’s not suppose to have anything. We are planning to go to Jordan Lake State Park on Thursday to stay a week. Hopefully she’ll be ready. That’s where the saying “our plans are set in jello” apply. She’s not a friendly dog, but we love her. She’s our furbaby.
Just a reminder to folks to not take the little things in life for granted. Stay safe.
