Prayer Request.((UPDATE)))

Post by anramire2 on Sun May 22, 2011 8:54 pm

I believe in the power of prayer and for anyone else who does, I ask that you kindly pray for our pup. Lily. I know it may sound like a silly request to some. But we love her. My children and I are devastated by her current condition. She is currently at our local animal hospital. It isn't quite clear what her diagnosis is. She has been vomiting and defecating blood. As a result she is severely dehydrated.
I called my vet yesterday morning to tell them she had been vomiting bile with streaks of blood. Because she had a wellness visit the day before the vet said she was probably stressed and worked herself in to a gastritis or colitis. She said to hold all fluids and food for 8 hours. I explained that I was a student nurse and if this were case in humans we wouldn't hold fluids. I was told that my anxiety would affect the dog and that I needed to calm down. They said they would make an appt for her Monday morning to see if she would be ready for surgery. She was scheduled for a spay. They arenít open on Sunday's so I couldn't even call them to say she was getting worse. Well I felt in my gut something wasn't right. Last night she was lethargic. I picked her up and it was like picking up a rag doll. I immediately rushed her to an animal hospital. She having issues with clotting and is severely dehydrated. We went to visit her today. And although she was slightly better she was able to raise her head and give my kids and I quick lick on the hand as if to say hello and, her prognosis is unknown. My children and I cried and prayed together in our short time with her. So I am kidnly asking any animal lovers or anyone else willing to do so, to kindly keep her in your prayers.
I Thank you!

This is our pup Lil Lil is what we call her!

YEp She's a Yorkishire. She is home. She's not back to her old self yet. The next week is supposed to be crucial. She is on Vitamin K for clotting. Pain meds. antibiotics. and electrolytes. I'm hoping the worse is over. the final diagnosis was hemorragic gastroenteritis. We have to take her back in 3 days. Hoping she gets well and peps up soon.

Poor thing, and she is so tiny to begin with. I hope she makes a full recovery and is back to herself soon. I bet the kids are happy to have her home.

Poor thing, HGE can be very scary for owners and can easily dehydrate them. It's not uncommon to recommend NPO, though, so you're vet was right in suggesting that. With the clotting issues, do they think she got into rodenticide? I'm glad she's home safe with you!

Initially they thought it was a Pyometra that required sx. So I made and appt for spay. B/c she was vomiting blood and had bloody stools on Sat I took her to Animal hospital. My vet said to wait till Monday. I didn't think she would have made it till monday. At first the animal hospital said it was a gallbladder issue, then they thought pancreatitis, then ended up with HGE. I don't think she got into Rodenticide. We don't typically use it. She looks so weak. Not her normal peppy self. The animal hospital doesn't think that pyometra was an issue even though she was in heat in April and appears to be in heat again. I'm so confused. I Don't know what to think. scratch
