You guys jinxed me!!!!

So, hear I thought we had Kodi's tummy problems under control, and the girls have never had any. Guess where WE were this morning. Yup. At the vet. Poor Panda had pretty nasty diarrhea last night, all mucous-y and bloody, and then this morning, a blow-out where she managed to not only coat her butt, but get it on her ears and caked into her back. So two baths in under 12 hours. She was drinking well, but she clearly didn't feel well.

Fortunately, my vet does have Sat. hours, and even though they didn't have any openings in their schedule, they took her in as an emergency. They thought she was pretty cute lying on the table for belly rubs, but I know my puppy, and that is NOT normal behavior for Miss Busy Pants. She just lay quietly on the table the whole time we were there. Although she was not dehydrated, and hadn't vomitted, she clearly felt nauseated too. She kept salivating, licking her lips and burping... Things she never does.

So, they gave her a Cerenia injection for the nausea, and sent me home with Cerenia tablets for the next few days. Plus she's supposed to be on Pepcid twice a day, super probiotics (Fast Balance GI paste) and on a bland diet of ground turkey (93% lean) and sweet potato for a few days. (Of course the other two went NUTS when they smelled me cooking for Panda, so they all had turkey and sweet potato for supper! )

She had a closer to normal (but still softer than it should be) poop tonight, so hopefully we're going in the right direction. I left a stool sample, so when they get the results of that, if it's anything that NEEDS ABX, we'll start her on them. But I like that as long as the animal isn't in pain, and doesn't have obvious signs of infection (she has no fever) my vet doesn't jump on ABX.

I still don't think she feels well, because she is just lying around on the kitchen floor, when she's usually out of control WILD at this time of night. The only positive thing is that it's made her forget about sex... She would have mated with the mail box for the two previous days!

This photo is of her on the exam table in the vet's office. Normally, she'd have been either exploring or trying to jump off to explore the floor! Poor baby!

Oh, no!!! Poor little girl! It is just pitiful to see her lying there on the exam table.

(You take your own towel for them to lay on? I love that idea, hadn't thought of it, though I do keep the furkids waiting in the car until the exam room is ready.)

I hope she is better by morning and that nothing bad shows up in her stool sample.

I'm chuckling about Panda being willing to mate with the mail box if you'd allowed her to.

Get Well Soon Panda. Hopefully no more butt baths are needed!

No! My vet's office ALWAYS has a memory foam pad with a clean towel on it for the dog. Little dogs are seen on the exam table, big dogs get their pad and towel on the floor, and the vet and techs come down to their level. It's the most thoughtful vet practice I've ever seen in terms of how they treat and interact with the animals.

Isn't always just when you say something your dogs prove you wrong? Every time. I hope Panda is feeling better by the time you read this.

OH NO! Poor Panda. Now that I remember, Lola had an upset tummy problem for a couple days when she was in heat, but not as dramatic as Panda. I wonder if there's a connection.

Hmmm. I told the vet she was in heat, (even told her what day it was) and he didn't say anything about a possible connection...

I hope she's better too! She did have another SMALL runny stool this evening, but she's just STARTED her meds and mild diet, so I suppose that's not a big surprise. I have a trial with Kodi tomorrow, but if she's not COMPLETELY OK over night and tomorrow morning, of course I'll stay home with her.
