My sweet, precious dog Sadie is not doing well. She was sick over Thanksgiving, and now she won't eat or drink a thing. After everything my sweet girl had been through before she became a treasured member of our family, it breaks my heart to know she is suffering so much. My youngest son and I are taking her to our Vet tomorrow (Monday) morning (he was closed during the holiday); and, I hope he will be able to tell us what is wrong and do something to make her better. I'd like to ask every to please pray for my Sadie and to please send good vibes our way. I can't bear the thought of losing my sweet Sadie-boo. Thank you so much!
Sadie spent the day at the vet's. They did blood work, etc., and she doesn't have anything life-threatening, thank goodness! She does have an intestinal infection, and was very dehydrated, so they gave her fluids. They also gave her a pill to get rid of the fleas she had on her, which were causing her to itch and scratch so much. Sadie had lost 15 pounds since her last vet visit, so the vet is concerned about that. One of the pills he prescribed is supposed to help increase her appetite. Hopefully, all of the meds he prescribed will put her on the road to recovery soon. I am so relieved that my sweet girl is okay. After everything she has been through in her short life, I want to do everything I can to make sure she is happy and healthy. Stacy, thanks so much for your caring. It is truly appreciated. Take care!
Stacy, I'm so sorry about your pups, and am glad you were able to save one. Parvo is such a dreaded disease, and I am so happy Sadie didn't have it. I know this time of year is bittersweet for you. My Sadie seems to be feeling better now, thank goodness. Gave her one of her pills, and now it's time to see if she will eat anything. Thanks again for being so kind. Hope you'll have a wonderful evening!
My Sadie girl just got out of surgery. The vet had to remove part of her diseased intestinal tract and reattach the healthy portion. He said it's touch and go and the next two days are critical. I'll be going to see her in the morning and will be asking if all of the buckshot she has in her body could have caused some of the damage. Prayers are greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
Was supposed to bring Sadie home this morning, but the vet called and said she isn't doing well. Her white blood cell count is down, she isn't eating or drinking anything and will not take her meds. She's on an IV and the vet is keeping a close eye on her this weekend. Went to see her earlier, and she is so weak and frail. When she looked at me with her sad, brown eyes, it broke my heart. If she gets worse, I'll have to make a decision I've NEVER had to make before - whether my precious girl will have to be put to sleep. I haven't stopped crying since I got home. I am praying with all my heart that she will pull through.
Carolyn- Sooo heart breaking, have been there. Much amen ro you and yours~grace
Thank you, Grace. I lost my precious Sadie a few hours after I posted this on December 9. The vet said she died peacefully, and she was a brave girl until the end. I still can't believe she's gone; but, it gets a little better with each passing day. My girl may be gone, but she will never be forgotten.
