Guess what we did yesterday?
We went to the V.E.T. again!
That is 3 times in a week...what is this world coming to?
I've told you this before but my pawrents are pawranoid! It was apparent that I was in pain when they took me to the V.E.T. on Thursday but I wasn't quite sick enough to tell exactly what was going on. I was refusing food, any and all food that was offered to me! Those of you who have known me for a while know that means something is seriously wrong! Mom tried giving me canned food, cheese, peanut butter, treats (even my favorite ones from Bijou), she even scrambled an egg....I wouldn't take any of it. I just turned my nose away. But then she whipped out the ultimate temptation, chicken jerky. I still wasn't interested in eating it but I took it from her and carried it in my mouth.
After I sat with it for a few minutes, I asked Mom to put me on the couch and then I went back to sleep. It is still laying on my blankie on the floor.
Friday night I started having runny poops....all night long. Momma and Daddy had to help me on and off the bed several times. Good thing we have some puppy pads around here for things like this. It was way too cold out to go outside in the middle of the night while being sick.
So, we went back to see the doctor Saturday morning. Not only had I not been eating but I hadn't been drinking either. They took my blood (Did you know they had vampires there?), gave me some fluids under my skin, gave me a shot to help my tummy, and put me on 2 more medicines. Apparently I have some bacterial overgrowth in my tummy which gives me some sort of infection.
I still refused to eat anything last night and then Mom got an idea. She doesn't get those often either. She thought since I showed some interest in the chicken jerky she would boil some chicken breasts for me. ;o) She gave me a few bites of it and I must admit that was pretty tasty. I think she hid some of my pills in it but that is better than Daddy holding me and Momma shoving those things down my throat.
I only had runny poops one time last night and I ate some more chicken this morning. I only eat a few bites of it and then I am done but at least I am eating, right? Remember I said earlier that I wasn't drinking anything? Well, Mom kept the water she boiled the chicken in and, let me tell you, that tastes so much better than regular water!
So, I am not well yet but I am starting to feel better.
We are still having trouble with our internet connection; we couldn't get online at all yesterday. We live in a townhouse and the way Mom understands it (scary) is that they split the cable line over and over. So, if a lot of others are using the web in our neighborhood it is hard for us to get things to load. That explains why we are always behind on your blogs....it takes forever for pages to load. Anyone out there have any ideas how to remedy this? It has gotten significantly worse lately.
