A Day At The Animal Hospital Is Like A Day Without Sunshine

Chanel

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.

Lizette-I just read your blog post after posting mine about my pomeranian who has pancreatitis.  How is Chanel doing these days?  I hope just fine.

Chanels new haircutIt has been a few years now since this health scare and many people ask me how Chanel is doing.

Well...she has completely recovered! Our lives changed after that ordeal.

While she was in the hospital I had them give her only distilled water. I still keep her on this to keep her kidneys form having chlorine or any other harmful substances in it. Why take a chance.

All her food is organic and no treats made in China. Be sure to read those labels.

She finally had had a professional haircut.

Chanel will be turning 5 in a month and we plan a BIG party for her.

I truly believe all the support and prayers from our AR friends helped keep her on this earth.

Chanel will post a birthday story soon. Stay tuned!

I truly hope your dog is feeling better soon. I may not know exactly how you feel; however, our dog was diagnosed with cancer just before Christmas, so, I feel your pain. Will be posting about our dog next week.

Happy New Year Gay! Thanks for stopping by! Chanel is still hanging in there. She has battled malignant melanoma since Aug 2012. Hoping she can beat it.
