    Unhappy Penny is not well

    My poor little Penny has not been well for the past couple of days, her energy seems to have diminished a bit and then I noticed blood in with her stools and also bleeding from her bum. I rang my vet straight away and he has her since yesterday, she has been on a drip for 24 hrs and her form is ok, although she is not eating, she hasn't had any more bleeding, but he is worried about her, so he is putting her an anesthetic as I type to see what is going on

    I know she will be ok, and I will be delighted when we get to the bottom of what is going on, but I am just worried about her, she is so tiny for a 1 year old Cavalier at only 9.5lbs, and I miss her so much, the house last night and this morning was so quiet (& calm) without her, but I would take her craziness any day over the emptiness of the house at the moment!! Des is missing his playmate too, not sure Bonnie cares, she's probably glad of the peace

    fingers crossed everything goes well....sorry justed needed to share this!
    Lucille,

    Oh dear. It sounds like gastroenteritis, which a lot of little doggies get. She is at the vet and is getting good care now so she'll be home to you in no time.
    Get well soon Penny!

    No pun intended I'm sure
    I hope she will be better soon too. It's awful when they aren't around, the peace is definitely worse than the busy-ness isn't it?

    Well the vet called, he is keeping her for another 24hrs, she is on IV fluids and antibiotics, her throat and tonsils are severely infected, to the point he had difficulty getting the tube down her throat!! She has ulcers on the back of her tongue that have healed....this still doesn't explain the bloody stools..this is still a mystery as he couldn't see any inflammation in her upper intestines and couldn't feel anything in the lower...that's not to say she hasn't eaten some plastic or something, which could be causing this! I feel like a terrible Mummy for not knowing she was this sick I knew she was out of sorts for a few days, and I just thought I was being neurotic...I'll know the next time..I hope she will be well enough to come home tomorrow night
    Lucille,

    Oh dear! Poor you... poor Penny! Don't blame yourself for not knowing this, our little furry friends cannot talk and say "my throat hurts", that's a tough one to diagnose. Sending positive healing vibes your way...
