It's been quiet at the house today. Chanel, my sweet Lhasa-Pom had to go to the hospital this morning.
It all started on Sunday morning when she didn't want any breakfast. She started throwing up. This went on all day then into the night.
I made a call to the vet, Dr. Taylor and left a message. Later, he called and told me if she still felt bad in the morning to bring her in.
Sure enough as soon as I got out of bed she threw up again. I hated to take her, but I really didn't know what was wrong with her.
I loaded her in the car with her bunny and off we went to the animal hospital. An emergency case to be fit in their schedule. I gave her a kiss and assured her I would be back for her as soon as they would let me. I was relieved that Dr. Taylor would know something about her condition.
The home office was so quiet I couldn't work. I'm so used to having her around to keep me sane. I missed her barking at nothing, potty breaks and playing with her toys. So, I waited....to hear any news.
Finally around 3PM I got the call. She was pretty sick and had a fever.Now on antibiotics and a shot for nausea. Possibly pancreatitis or an infection of some sort. The bloodwork results tomorrow might give a clue. An x-ray showed nothing.
They did tell me I could take her homeand give her more of the antibiotic tonight. So I anxiously went to fetch her home. I really didn't want her sick and in a cage all night at the hospital even though she would get the best of care. I hope for good news tomorrow.
She has spent her evening under the bed, sleeping and weak as a kitten. No food for 2 days and throwing up might do that to you. She can barely walk. Anyway, I'm hoping she will feel better tomorrow. It's funny how our pets take over our lives. I wouldn't have it any other way.
