My little girl was rushed into theatre this morning and remains there now. They think its a twisted bowel and she is so poorly. She is only 5 and Im heart broken. Prayers for Pebbles please xxx:(

29th September 2009, 12:26 PM
I'm sorry to hear this. Please let us know when she's out of theatre.I wish there was more we could say or do to help but she's in the best hands and they'll do all they can for her.

29th September 2009, 12:35 PM
Thanks so much. She went in theatre at 9 am and is still there:( She became ill so quickly its all still a bit of a shock!

29th September 2009, 12:37 PM

My thoughts are with you and Pebbles. This is a condition that comes on very quickly and is extremely urgent so you were very fast thinking to get her in where she is in the best hands possible.

Please let us know how she does. :flwr:

29th September 2009, 12:53 PM
Thinking of you and Pebbles and praying that everything will be okay with her :hug:

29th September 2009, 02:13 PM
My thoughts are with you and pebbles. Praying that everything will be ok.

29th September 2009, 03:14 PM
UPDATE - Pebbles was in theatre until 1 pm, she did not have a twisted bowel but have swolled a pair of underwear!!! Pebbles has NEVER been a dog to nibble on anything she shouldnt so this is a complete mystery!! However she remains critical as they were twisted around everything apparently. Part were in the bowel but part had started to wrap itself around organs, I was just so shocked I couldnt take it all in or remember everything she has told me. Pebbles has to stay in for at least 2 days and they said this period is critical. Wish I had thought to ask more questions.

29th September 2009, 03:35 PM
Thanks for the update -- can imagine this is all such a shock --hang in there, and thinking healing thoughts for Pebbles.

29th September 2009, 03:39 PM
Thanks so much! From what I can make out they had to cut into stomach, bowel and intestine. Poor girl must have been in agony and it remains a mystery how she got a pair unless they feel off the washing line:(

Poor Pebbles and poor you.
How could anyone anticipate something like this ? It is not what you would expect from a mature 5 year old that has never stolen underwear before.

I'm keeping everything crossed for her.

29th September 2009, 03:50 PM
Keeping everthing crossed for good news loads of hugs to you :hug:

All the matters is that she's doing ok after her surgery. So far so good.
The can be terrible little scavengers:(. Just try to keep yourself occupied and not dwell too much on how it happened.
It's not the first time a cavalier has eaten something to land itself in surgery...
Just stay positive and the vets will do their very best to get her through this and have her back to you.Hang on in there.

29th September 2009, 04:18 PM
So sorry you are going through this, my thoughts will be with you and Pebbles.

It's a good reminder to all of us to be careful with underwear, this isn't the first time I've heard of this happening. They all seem to love running off with undies.

29th September 2009, 04:34 PM
Vet has just phoned to say she is resting well and looking very sorry for herself. They will phone me again in the morning with an update. She remains on a drip and i guess will be pretty sleepy until the morning. Its so out of character! And like you say Pauline, lets all keep a closer eye cause if my Pebbles can run off and swallow an entire pair anyones can - lol:confused:

29th September 2009, 05:06 PM
Big hugs to you, I can't imagine how worried you must be. Hope she's back to herself in no time.

Love my Cavaliers

I'm so glad she's doing better. When Oliver was around 2 years old, he swallowed a cat toy and had to have 2 feet of his intestines removed. He has recovered beautifully and eats regular food without any digestive problems. Hopefully that will be the same with Pebbles. Oliver liked to stay in the crate when he can home until he fully recovered. It was hs safe spot. Good luck to you and Pebbles. She's in our thoughts and prayers.

I'm so glad she is doing better. It's just so weird why a dog would want to swallow a whole pair of underwear, especially so small a dog. I know I would be so mad at her and yet so worried about her all at once. Daisy has certainly been known to chew on a pair or two, but has never shown any inclination to swallow them, but I guess your experience shows that you never know what they will decide to do...

You and Pebbles are in my prayers today that she has a full recovery.

29th September 2009, 06:16 PM
Sorry i posted so late, have been finding it hard to come on the website

So sorry about pebbles!! I was very surprised when i read what you had put, poor girl :(

29th September 2009, 06:21 PM
My thoughts are with you and Pebbles :xfngr: glad to hear she is recovering from her surgery x

29th September 2009, 06:24 PM
What a shock!! I know how surprising that can be coming from a dog who isn't mischevious and doesn't get into things. Probably the last thing you thought of. So glad she's survived her surgery and praying she makes a full recovery.

29th September 2009, 06:34 PM
What a worry for you, but so far so good.

29th September 2009, 07:17 PM

Thoughts of healing are directed your way! Hope that Pebbles is a fast healer!

I know that both of our dogs the 3 year old golden and the 1 year old cavalier can quickly get into trouble whether inside or out.:eek:

UPDATE - Have just been to see Pebbles. She is hopefully coming home tomorrow. They want to watch her for one more day:( She isnt eating so well so they just want to get that settled. She certainly looked much better then before surgery. I was so sad to leave her but she is staying one more night on vets advise. She's had a lovely kiss and cuddle and vet thinks she will make a FULL recovery:rah:
