Tessa is sick!!

Tessa has had a marked decreased appetite these last few days but I thought it was the typical Hav pickiness appearing. But today she's been very listless, so much so that a friend who stopped by asked me what was wrong with her. I was bringing out all the Christmas decorations, (normally that sends puppies into a frenzy of activity!) and she couldn't have cared less. Then she threw up this afternoon, a clear liquid. I took her to the vet late afternoon. The vet said on exam she looked good, plus no temp, but he drew bloodwork on her to be certain all is OK. We'll get the results back tomorrow.

My husband is worried she has a Greenie stuck in her esophagus (we just found out about the dangers yesterday)...silly I know, I guess we're just scared.... or worse, a liver shunt, although the vet said that was last on his list of possibilities.

She's sleeping next to me now while I catch up on forum news. I haven't seen her play all day.

Please send feel good vibes to Tessa tonight!

Jan, I'm so sorry to hear that Tessa is sick. We're keeping your family and Tessa in our thoughts and prayers tonight and send healing thoughts. Hopefully it is just something she got into that gave her a tummy ache. Poor baby.

Let us know when you hear something.

Hi Jan,
Hope she feels better soon!
Did the vet think she might have something stuck in her? If so, why didnt he offer to take an x-ray??

Oh no - we're sending healing thoughts and tender hugs to poor Tessa. I hope she's feeling better real soon.

Our Pepper became quite sick two days after we got him. It turned out to be a stomach infection from garbage gut. I hope Tessa's ailment is just as easy to treat as Pepper's was.

HI!!

Please don't be alarmed but I had to share what happened to Ollie...

He was a bit listless and puked bile - 2X in one day - took him to vet and after an xray...he had something lodged in his belly that he had eaten...next day I brought him in to be observed while I was at work and it did not change - he just wasn't going to pass whatever it was....$1200 later after surgery he had eaten an earplug I wear so I don't hear all the snoring men in my house - 1 DH 1 Teenager and 2 havs!

I was lucky tho - I had insurance and was reimbursed $900!

Just make sure if he is not improving - they xray!!!

Sending warm thoughts and wishes..

OLLIE & AUSTIN'S MOM
