The Bland Diet the Vet put her on worked. She started eating right away!
The pain pills and antibiotic are working. She would not get up on her own. We carried her everywhere!
After taking a few doses of medicine and getting some food in her belly, she decided to be brave and get up on her own and walk. Now she follows me everywhere and don't leave my side.
I was sitting next to her on the couch today and just like that she jumped off and almost gave me a heart attack. I thought for sure she ripped her stitches open.
This is her 3 days after surgery...
And this is her today....She decided she didn't want to come back in the house. She wanted to lay in the sun and relax...She didn't want to lay in the grass, she wanted to lay in the driveway.
She has a bandage on her incision and then an ace wrap around it. She still has some drainage......
So I called the Vet again today and he said there was a couple things I could try....giving her canned pumpkin, or chicken noodle soup, or a little vegetable oil. He said this would loosen things up.
If this doesn't work by Saturday, she needs to go back in for an enema!
I have never had this happen to an animal in my life...so I don't know, it sounds crazy to me, but he is a very popular Vet. This isn't just a Vet Clinic, this is an animal Hospital. He sees all animals, dogs cats, horses pigs, cows, you name it. He's been in business for many, many years. People come from all over. He is very reasonabley priced compared to other vets around my area.
So I guess it doesn't hurt to try...thinking she would have results by tonight. No Luck yet!
So I am asking all you pet owners out there, do you have any advice, ideas, anything that I could try???
I would hate for her to have an enema! Any help would be appreciated!
Looks like she's giving me a dirty look here! Probably thinking, get that camera out of my face! Lol!
