The new dog needs mojo

PricklePatch posted 10/2/2018 22:40 PM

My standard poodle has been here a month. Her 30 day health certificate was suppose to be issued this sat., for her insurance. Last sat, I took her in and she had eaten something. The vet thought she would pass it. Weds, ER surgery at the trauma vet. She did well, her intestine perforated and they removed a piece.

She came home Friday night, and Sunday night she started leaking fluid slightly pink. Called, they said come in yesterday. Letís just say, things arenít great. They told me I wonít know for about another week and a half if she lives.

I am beside myself. She is a great dog. She ate cloth. The breeder thinks she was trying to bond. I think the breeder is nuts on this. She had rope toys only.

Anyways, mojo and crossed paws needed.

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear about this. Mojo for your sweet dog.

Damn girl. That's not what we want to hear.

Prayers and paws crossed.

I took her back to the emergency vet. The incision is infected. The culture should come back Friday or sat. So we can get her on the right antibiotics. She is on 2 now.

I wish the insurance would cover part. It is however a preexisting condition at this point.

If your vet has now confirmed a pre-existing condition then can you not claim at least part costs from the seller?

Hoping everything goes well, it's amazing how quickly they find their place in your heart xx.

Mali, seems to be healing.

She had a bad ear infection, when I got her. It returned two weeks later. She had no history of ear infections.

She literally ate a piece if my DD, baby blanket she still sleeps with. She ate a piece of my husbands shirt and my gown. She also ate a piece of a toy. We originally thought she passed the fabric. We were careful with crating her. No signs of anything. Then I saw her chewing a tennis ball.

She had gastric upset both ends. We took her in to the vet. We got meds she was eating and drinking and appeared to be ok till weds am, a week ago. Off to the emergency vet. Surgery or euthanasia was the choice.

Her incision is infected. The whole thing is a wait and see.

The good news is the Inchon line looks better as of Friday.

Sending Mojo for your dog and for you. I sure do hope her condition improves.

Sending good wishes and mojo and looking forward to a good update. She feels your love, she'll fight hard to pull through.

Give her a pat on the head and a soft hug from me. And to you, too. Well, skip the pat on the head part. :)

Sending all wishes for all the very best possible.

Update on My Standard poodle girl. It was 2 weeks ago and she is back to prancing and smiling. She saw the vet yesterday at the specialty hospital. He is amazed at how well she is doing.

The vet also said that removing a length of her intestine and this whole surgery, will not affect her life span.

Apparently, wearing the cone brought back the ear infection. That isnít a big deal.

She was literally shining in happiness with her cone off.

Thank you everyone for the positive thoughts.

That's great news. So happy for you and your pup.

tushnurse posted 10/11/2018 07:40 AM

Whew. That is crazy stuff. She must feel the need to eat things w/ your scent to bond with you. I have a friend w/ a goldendoodle that had to have 3 surgeries to remove things during his puppyhood. Goofy dogs. lol. My friend ask the vet if they could just put a zipper in his belly since he had to have so many surgeries to remove things.

Gals she is healing and doing better.

Happy to hear she is doing better! Glad for you and your pup.
Quite an appetite!
