I'm all deklemped. I can't help it. Taz, is not doing good at all and we can't figure out what'swrong.

He was worse today.

I didn't work out. I did errands. Anything to keep my mind off the fact that the little guy isn't looking good and I don't know how to help him.

We took him into the vet at 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday night. The vet took x-rays that didn't tell him much and gave him a pain shot and sent him home with us. We brought back in in the morning so they could observe him and do more tests. When we picked him up in the afternoon, he was his old self. Not today, though. He's just not himself at all. We called the vet and he said to give him remidal 2x/day and call on Monday if he's not doing better. I just hate seeing him like this.

We rushed him into the emergency clinic in May too. They kept him overnight, did all kinds of tests, put him on IV fluids and pain meds and antibiotics. The next day he was good as new (not so my wallet). They couldn't figure out was wrong other than an "irritated colon"...i.e. we don't know what caused it but this is the result. He's been ok since then and the symptoms aren't as serious this time, but still, he's not a happy camper and so, neither am I.


I love my doggies. emoticon

    Hey sweetie! Looks like I missed this one. But I see it was posted just before I left on holiday. Sorry you went through such a hard time with Taz being so sick. How is the little guy doing now? They can turn our world & our hearts upside down when they are not well. emoticon

    Oh, Kissie, this is really bad. :( It's sooo hard when your doggies aren't okay and you don't know what's the matter with them!!!!

    Do they have a vet hospital around there? Maybe your vet can give you a referral to them? That's what I just had to do with Sophie because they couldn't figure it out. My vet tried to tell me he thought she might have lymphoma. I should have known better than to listen to him, because he tried to tell me he thought my last dog had lung cancer, to which I replied (you know what I'm gonna say) he doesn't smoke (and neither do I!) And my doggie didn't have lymphoma and my other doggie didn't have lung cancer. Thing is, the vet hospital knows all that stuff way better than the vets do.

    Anyway, I'm really sorry Taz is having hard time. That's hateful, hateful. Is there anything I can do? :|

    Oh, Kissie! I hope Taz gets better and stops feeling so bad! I love dogs, too, and it really sucks when they don't feel good and can't tell you what's wrong!! emoticon
