Sophie scared me to death today
We went to Sophie's 2nd obedience lesson today but just as he got to the door to go in the building, she suddenly started to scream BLOODY murder and collapsed. It was horrible, thankfully the instructor was right there and checked her out I had to sit down before I fell down.
So ran to the specialty vet, xray, examined by neurologist, etc. They didn't find anything structurally thankfully (knees, hips, back, neck, etc) they noticed she was gassy she has been for a bit I figure it is from the training treats and been trying to find some that don't bother her as much. xray showed some gas in duodenum but not tons.
Since they couldn't find anything else they tentatively diagnosed it as acute abdomenal gas pain. I guess anything could happen but seems odd to me shes been gassy and never shown one sign of discomfort at all, and then to have it hit her litterally mid stride so suddenly.
I wonder about bee sting too I had just pottied her in some short grass, walked 10 feet to the training building door and that is when it hit her. Could have picked up a bee in the grass and took it that long to penetrate her thick coat??
AUGH I have no idea but scared out of my gourd!!!!!!!!!!
