Starting last Tuesday during the night, Abigail has been sick from a stomach infection. She kept us up that night, Wednesday and Thursday night crying. Naturally it was a holiday on Thursday:( so vet wasn't open. We didn't think she needed emergency care since she had only a little problem with loose poo and vomiting.Friday left her at vet for xrays, blood work and they discivered an infection and started her on antibiotics and gave us some for 7 days plus special food.

Thankfully today she has a little more energy. We can't figure out what caused infection unless she ate something in the yard and that had something bad in it. We are going to quit feeding the birds as vet said that can cause major problems if she eats bird seed.

Abigail seems to be getting better ; still on meds and special diet. However, she has started waking us up at 5:15 AM.:eek: Doesn't really have to go out and we are trying to figure if paper delivery is culprit ( though she didn't do this before she was ill).

Thanks for your thoughts! Yes, something usually happens on a holiday or the weekend:rolleyes:
