Sophie's in the hospital
I am so upset right now, I feel like I'm in a nightmare. Last night after dinner, I was taking my supplements and a vitamin D fell on the floor and I didn't know it.It was a 50,000 u perscription one. Sophie got it and bit into it before I got it from her. The soft gel was empty, so I called the emergency vet and took her right away. They said without treatment she would probably die. I had to leave her there and they made her vomit and put her on iv fluids.I picked her up this morning to take her to my regular vet this morning.
She has to stay on fluids until Wednesday morning when I can pick her up.She's also having charcoal treatments. I'm so scared. They said this can cause kidney failure and other things. I feel so guilty for not being more careful. When I picked her up she was still so cute and licky.I hated taking her to another bad place. I'm also worried how this will affect her if she is okay.This has to be such a horrible experience for her. I'm going to visit her later to try to get her to eat something, but I doubt she will because she's not such a big eater anyway.
