I have been a mess over here with my little Zoey......she has been very sick for the past day...vomiting and not eating. And to make matters worse, I think it was Friday when she got into a stash of my old buttons here in the studio. I believe she swallowed one :( She just loves to find stuff to get into here in the studio, no matter how hard I try to keep things put away and out of harms way for her....she still manages to get into trouble behind my back.
So I took her to the vet yesterday telling him that I think she may have the button blocked in her intenstines. He did xrays and found nothing, but because the button is plastic it won't show up......so he said we will treat her for vomiting for now and go from there. Last night she would not eat and just drank water like crazy....just very very quite and wants to be left alone on her chair. Normally she would sleep in bed with me but did not want to leave her chair. She is definately not herself. Although she stopped vomiting because of the shot he gave her she still was not getting better.
Very early this morning she ate a little bit and she did a small little poopie....(no button found in it)....I thought she might be getting better but not so. The vet called me this morning to see how she was doing, but I had told him she still is not herself. He said I could wait awhile to see if things got better but I don't want to wait just in case it is the button obstruction in her intestines.....the longer you wait the chances of recovery get worse.
So I immediately brought her back there for more testing. I had to leave her for the day and possibly the night depending on what they find out. There is a Barium test they will do which will tell them if there is an obsruction.....if so, then I'm finding out via google that surgery is pretty much the only solution. I'm sitting here now typing away and getting so worried just waiting for that phone call from the vet to see if they find out what is wrong with her..........
I was just asking if you could send a little prayer up for her? I will keep you posted on what I find out about her. It's funny how our little animals are just like our children, part of the family, and how attached we get to them :(
