Thank you dogster for makin' me a Diary Pick today! That's good, cause I always got lots to say, according to Mommy. I Arrroooo-rooo-rooo out the window all day long!
On Sunday I had a bit of a setback with my allergies. Mommy and Mama saw that I had thrown up on Saturday night after my supper, but didn't think that much of it because sometimes I do throw up. BUT, I didn't look that good, I was lethargic, and I ate my breakfast the next morning and threw up again. Then I threw up again and again. I threw up so much there was no food in my belly and I was just barfing up bile. It was NOD good. I wouldn't take any water, and I just lay down on the kitchen floor, which is not normal for me, I usually lie down on carpet. Mama called the emergency vet. She knew I was real sick.
Well I went to the emerg vet on Sunday afternoon, luckily they were able to take me, and I got some fluids right away cause I was dehydrated. I also got an anti-nauseant shot. It wasn't too pleasant, but I didn't feel well so I knew Mama and the lady vet was trying to help me.
We have since determined that I had an upset stomach from the Atopica medication, which is normal (throwing up), even though I have been on it for two weeks. Since I am on such a limited diet, we know I didn't react to anything bad, UNLESS I got into some yucky mess in the backyard, but Mommy doesn't think that was the case.
After I came back from the e-vet, I had a good nap (the anti-nausea worked like gravol), and then I was the best kind again. It was a very scary episode for Mommy and Mama and me, but I perked right back up after those fluids. Sigh. I have cost my Moms a lot of money, I am sure glad they are able to take care of me and my health issues. I am such a lucky dog.
Anyway, this week was much better, no barfs and much more like myself. I am still a bit itchy, but I'm getting a bit better, now that I'm not allowed any treats, chicken or anything else. Humph. At least I've lost 1.5 lbs, and am now closer to my ideal weight (although still a little heavy)!
I'm sorry you were so sick, Twin. Momma calls me the Million Dollar Dog cause of all my surgeries and stuff. Sounds like you might be one, too!! Momma says I'm worth every penny, and I know you are, too!!!
Sigh...one day our peeps are going to figure out how we can go to work, too to have a wage for all the $$ we need to stay healthy and junk like that! BOL!
I hope you don't get any more of those nasty feeling sick episodes.
Congrats on your DDP!
