Hi all, I hope you had are having will have a great day today mine was_______________________ (let's just leave that blank)
I posted about Fletcher pooping something weird on Sunday (********gross warning******* if you want to read it) anyway I called the vet yesterday and we agreed that whatever it was he passed it and just watch him etc. Well, he was fine until about 1:45 this afternoon. He threw up what appeared to be another piece of this same fabric which by the way the first piece he pooped out I thought was from a throw rug at my parents house, Fletcher has not been to her house since Saturday......
Needless to say I was on the phone with my vet's office telling them I was on my way at 2:00 with a treat baggie for the staff (hahaaa ok you have to laugh) he did eat and poop/pee fine this morning and was his normal self at work with me all morning. Ok, so we go in and they actually have the gall to ask me if its alright they do xrays and possible labs. My actually words to this poor tech was "there is not budget on the healthcare of my puppy, just take care of him". Two vets and I examined the treat bag together and it is not a brown piece of fabric like Sunday its a dark blue piece of fabric like from a cotton t-shirt and its a pretty big piece. I honestly have NO IDEA where it came from. Since the "issue" on Sunday my husband and I re-puppy proofed the whole living area and double/triple checked his area, honestly knowing he "likes" fabric, I am completely confused where this dark blue fabric came from.
Anyway, they do x-rays nothing big showing up so they want to do a Barix (ok so that make be spelled wrong and the wrong name too but someone help me out here) and keep him for a few hours and do more x-rays but its a good report he should be fine let's just be SURE. I did not cry when I left him at the vet's but it sucked still. I was told to come back at 6 to talk to the vet again and hopefully take Fletcher home.
Those were a few long hours, plus I have my youngest kid with me because as luck would have it my husband is out of town for business tonight (yeah so lucky) but the report was good. The vet thinks that the dark blue piece of fabric was the only really big piece and the test showed things were flowing. However, she wants to do one more x-ray tomorrow morning and gave me a long list of things to watch for overnight. I'm going to be like a new mother with a new baby waking up to make sure the baby is breathing all night lol. Now as an added bonus he had white poop hahahaaa. I can joke because he's fine and what else can I do? I did say owning a puppy was an adventure didn't I.
I will update you after we see the vet tomorrow. Any suggestions on what I'm not doing right that has allowed this to happen 2 different times within 3 days. I promise, I do keep him pinned up when I am not supervising him 100%.....(he has not had a potty accident in the house in over a week so I must be doing that right) The vets both of them said he would out grow this stage and recommended maybe thinking about a cage type muzzle which???? I don't know (besides he'll really look like Lady for Lady And the Tramp) The mystery of the dark blue fabric is going to haunt me.........
Anyway he's sleeping happily beside me now, so I'm thankful for that.
