TUFF DAY

Well I am sitting here like a zombie waiting to hear on my Ollie baby. He was vomiting yesterday morn - did not seem that bad - but then started again at 5:30 last nite....vet said to come in - $275 later...he has eaten something about the size of an 1.5 inch rock - maybe wood....brought him home - not eating or drinking - and took him back to stay at vet today - he may need surgery to remove what ever it is...it is soooooo hard to see him just look at you with those eyes....surgery will be about $1000....thankfully I have insurance -

Oh dear, how stressful!! I'm sorry to hear Ollie will need surgery! I'm sure they'll find what the problem is and he'll do just fine, but it is still worriesome. You feel helpless, sitting at home waiting for news.

Please do let us know how Ollie makes out o.k.? Thank goodness for insurance. That does it, I'm signing up today - been waiting too long to finally decide, but this convinces me insurance is necessary. You just never know what your little one will get into!

Good luck, positive vibes sent your way. ((hugs))

Awwww, no fun~
I am sure he will make it thru surgery just fine. I am curious as to what he ate, poor guy. I remember last year one of my dogs kept having diarrhea, and I couldn't figure out why because she was acting normal in every other way, then she pooped out one of my bright yellow earplugs! Ugh!
Keep us updated on how he is doing.
I will be thinking of you today.

Not sure - may be tan bark or they are also thinking a sports bottle cap - the kind that has the extendable nipple....funny - he is not an eater of junk...and only 7.5 lbs so this is big object for his size...word to the wise - if I did not have insurance this would have cost me almost $1700 for his surgery today and appointments xrays meds etc yesterday...

Hi
So sorry to hear that he had to have surgery . I hope it all goes well .
Yes it sounds like you have great insurance . That must be so reassuring .
Keep us posted as to how he is doing .
I know how these little fellows love to pick up things . Sometimes i think Cosmo works for Hoover . I am constantly having to watch him ..
You both are in our thoughts and prayers .

I'm sure he will be just fine. They just like to keep you on your toes

I caught Shelby chewing on a rock yesterday. I had a lab/husky and when she was about 2yrs she ate one of my knee hi's. We didn't know it and at first I thought it was just an upset stomach. By day 2 she couldn't keep water down and then she started to shake and her body got cold. $800 later surgery because she culdn't pass it, and the vet couldn't pull it out. She was just fine after that and lived to be almost 18 yrs old.
