Our (sort of) Sick Puppy
Chris took Max to the vet yesterday because he has been throwing up on a fairly regular basis (a few times a week). The Dr. Ellis felt over his stomach and he tried to get away when she reached a certain point. Next came x-rays, which showed 2 partial blockages; one where the stomach meets the intestines and another in the intestines. Max is still eating and passing his food so it’s not an emergency but it is something we need to address with surgery. So next Tuesday Chris is taking Max in again to receive barium and another round of x-rays so they can try to identify the blockage before the surgery. Chris and I are fairly certain the blockages are parts of toys that he has ingested but we will have to wait to see. While getting checked over, the vet noticed that he had two sets of 2 teeth, which will have to be pulled out and we’ve decided to get him fixed…maybe they can do it at the same time as the surgery???? I am very thankful that we are able to get this taken care while Chris is still here!
