Kitty is not doing well. This morning she wasn't acting right, her belly was a little bloated and she was holding it very tense. She did have diarrhea this morning, but I thought it could be a side affect of the pain meds she is on.

She didn't want her breakfast, which is really unusual--she is like Gypsy was, a chow hound that rarely turns down any type of food.

I was patting her belly, and it was making noises like a drum, and noticed that she felt warm to the touch...so I took her temp. 103.7...not normal.

So, we gave her baruim and did an xray. The barium passed through, but there is a suspiciou cloudiness in her stomach. The doctor thinks she may have eaten a rag or stuffing from a toy.

She still feels bad, worse even, she is breathing rapid and heavy, laying stretched out in the kennel.

So she is now hooked up to IV fluids and we will be taking another xray at 2pm. Depending on the results, we may be going into surgery this afternoon.

Just please, keep her in your prayers.

Oh honey bunny. She'll feel so much better once it is out. The surgery and the restrictions will suck but it's a price we gladly pay for a healthy pup. You guys are in my thoughts. I know how worried and scared you are.

Bones. COOKED bones. I never give any of the dogs cooked bones.

She's recovering right now. She is still hooked up to fluids, and will probably stay at the clinic for a couple days to make sure everything is healing/flowing like it should be.

My poor baby.
