Hi everyone (for those that remember me...and those that dont!)
I'm afraid I have sad news, and I'm asking for your help.
Last week i came home to find both of my flip flops shredded into a MILLION pieces IN his crate. IN. smh .
A few days later Boogie started frantically licking the floor...When i took him out he frantically ate the grass. I knew something was wrong. When he came in to throw up...he started like choking, it was truly terrible. I gave him something like the heimlich manuever and believe it or not it helped him to throw some of it up. I had to take him to the vet. They induced vomiting, and recovered a piece of the flip flop. I'm not sure how much of it they found. Anyway. They sent him home and told me to monitor him. He went home...and the next day he was FINE. The following days he was FINE. Eating drinking...and pooping fine...playing fine. he was FINE.
Last night ( 8 days after he went to the vet) he was frantically licking the floor again. He ate a TON of grass...and ultimately began puking excessively. He kept trying to eat it...but i wouldnt let him.
I took him to the vet yet again. They think he ate something ELSE. which is impossible. He's been closely monitored and crated with NOTHING near the crate.... They ended up doing xrays and it shows "bunching" in his small intestine.. right outside of his stomach (where it empties) ...They said it COULD signify a blockage but the only way to be sure is to give him a Barium study. They gave me a price and it was way beyond anything i could even fathom affording (at least $700) and then if there IS a blockage it would be another (at least) $2,000. I am devastated. They gave him an injection of Serenia (spelling?) to stop the nausea and im supposed to monitor him...
Hes been fine today. He even pooped. But the serenia is still in his system. My next step is this barium study.
I started a fundraiser for Boogie to help his current vet bills, and the ones to come. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to ask for donations on the board???? but i was wondering if you could help me spread the word....please. Facebook...InstaGram...Email...Twitter. Anything. We are desperate.
The full story is on the fundraising page, and IF by chance (God Willing) Boogie does NOT need the surgery and there is EXCESS money from the fundraiser. I will be donating it to another animal in need. Please look, and spread the word if you can. Please. https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/xm33/help-for-boogie
