Jury Duty today... Lame =(
just spent $310 on getting my dog some digital xrays and a 400 cc fluid bolus. Effing mutt ate half a bag of dog food and had a hard bloated belly. I couldn't tell if she was dry heaving because she had a rawhide stuck in her somewhere or if she had gotten into something bad. Turns out she just ate 3 days worth of food and really nothing was wrong with her.
I noticed that she didnt want to eat dinner, which is atypical for her. then i noticed her hard distended abdomen and took her to the after hours emergency vet.
It was ME that was supposed to have a $300 meal at Uchi (badass sushi bar) tonight... instead the freakin dog took a $30 bag of food and turned it into a $310 dollar meal.
BOSS! What a great name! Sorry that he has passed on. Great looking dog tho! The thing that kills me, is that we finally figure out that she ate all that food the night before. She had already been running 6 miles in the greenbelt and was running like nothing was wrong ALL DAY. The only time we noticed was when she wouldn't eat. I wondered why she took TWO HUGE DUMPS on the trail... so the moral of the story being. If we would have just skipped her dinner and left her be, she would have been just fine without going to the Doggie ER and getting an IV and 500cc bolus (+ the $175 digital x-rays that took 2 HOURS to show us!)At least yours was cheap compared to what mine was a few years ago.lol Glad she's okay and nothing was seriously wrong with her. Had our rescued St. Bernard snatch a hotdog out of my little brothers hand and it got lodged in his stomach. He bloated and his stomach twisted (Gastric dilatation-volvulus is what he had and survival chance is only about 25%). About 2 hours later we were going to bed so put him outside one last time. He somehow got out of the backyard and instead of wandering the neighborhood he came to the front door, layed down and barked. We noticed his abdomen extremely bloated and he wasn't his usual self.
4 surgeries and $3500 later he was better. But he ended up passing away about a year and a half later due to other issues/old age. He was almost 8.
This was Boss
Nope, you're not the only one.
