PBF has pretty good juju and we could use some good thoughts right now.
Maili currently has a whole package of rawhide sitting in her stomach after eating it all two days ago. My future in-laws are fond of sending us rawhide bones. Usually I throw them away but I guess I put a package of it in a drawer of the dog side table. The dog side table is in our office. We keep two crates in the office and a large dog bed for Maili to sleep on while we're not home. Charlie and Annie are in the crates and Maili is left out with the door to the rest of the house closed. I guess that night I hadn't closed the drawers to the side table all the way because she opened a drawer, took out the package of rawhides, tore it open, and consumed all of them. All that was left was the packaging.
That was two nights ago on Wednesday. Before Corey and I left Wednesday night to go to Charlie's puppy class we fed everyone. Maili ate the rawhide after she ate dinner. The next morning she threw up all her food and it was partially digested. I fed them all breakfast and Maili kept it down. I fed them all dinner and Maili kept it down until 4am this morning when she threw it all up. I took her outside at 5am and she had diarrhea, then vomited again.
I knew at this point it was probably a partial blockage or some nasty reaction to rawhide. I told Corey she needed to go to the vet today and I took her in at 9am. They took some xrays and felt her belly. Maili's totally not lethargic at all, she acts normal. Still has an appetite, she ate breakfast this morning and kept it down. The xray showed the rawhide is STILL sitting in her stomach after two days. The vet gave me some medicine to help her diarrhea and vomiting and also to try to move the rawhide along. Maili's supposed to go back tomorrow for more xrays.
Dunno if you all knew but me and my fiance were unemployed from March until just a month ago this year. So times were tight. While driving to the vet today Corey told me someone hacked his XBOX Live account and purchased enough points to drive his bank account into overdraft and racked up a bunch of overdraft fees with the bank. I hope you all don't mind sending some good thoughts so we won't have to go through with surgery. If it turns out she needs surgery I'll try to talk my parents into paying for her surgery instead of some stuff for our wedding next year. Care Credit is a no go since I was denied for it.
Thanks in advance guys. I'm really worried about Maili
