Bloat Scare!!!!

Hi Pups, this is Justus' Mom:

We had to take Justus into the emergency hospital this morning at 4:00am.....He had been pacing the floor since 10:00pm last night and I was afraid he would bloat!! After a run to the hospital and about an hour later we spent $350.00 to learn that he had not bloated yet, but he could have been headed in that direction. Thank God he had not bloated yet. Money well spent!!!

Justus has had stomach issues from time to time and has never paced for more than 3 hours. The last time he had this I was just about to take him into the vets office when he started getting over it. If I had taken him this time we may have avoided this trip!! It seems to be getting a little worse and lasting a little longer each time he has it; which I think is typical of bloat.

He is resting under the influence of a pain reliever right now and I just got him off our bed so I could leave the room. I was so afraid he would wake up while I was out of the room and try to get down. He walked to his front window and sat and then collapsed into a heap. The attending vet said he would sleep for several hours.

Dr. Wilson from Colleyville Animal Clinic has already called this morning to check on him. And he gave me some additional instructions.

So that is how my weekend ended.
