Unhappy Sniffles and Worries

Nessie, our Aussie, is sick. Sniffle....

At the beginning of the week, we started to notice that she wasn't enthusiastic about eating. Nessie was a bit quieter except for her breathing seemed laboured. I thought that maybe she pulled a muscle and it hurt to lean down to eat. I hauled her to the vet's on Thursday but except for a faint positive for Lyme, her bloodwork was okay.

This morning she refused to eat much and left food in her bowl. Back to the vet's for chest xrays. Sniffle... She has fluid build-up around the outside of her lungs. The fluid won't let her take deep breaths.

They drained some of the fluid for analysis and to try to ease her breathing. She goes back on Monday for ultrasound to see if they can see what is causing the fluid build-up. From the vet's demeanor, it looks rather grim.

Nessie is only 4. We are freaking out. We lost Kit, our 9 yr. old Border Collie, Aug. 2010 to cancer. My heart isn't up for more sadness.

TTFN,
Pam

Oh, Pam - I am so sorry! I hope it turns out that it is nothing serious. Will be sending positive, healing thoughts Nessie's way.

Hoping the vet can find the cause and there is a cure.

I hope so. Nessie is really working the sad puppy eyes tonight. Maybe it will be something simple. Maybe the vet is just being cautious. I am totally stress-eating tonight. I went out and got ice cream and hot fudge sauce.

TTFN,
Pam
