I sure am hoping the best outcome for your Ayo. It is heartbreaking isn't it? Was there myself just about a month ago. Uzie aspirated some gastric content and is 99.99% over the whole ordeal. The barium x-rays, showed a slow procession of cleaning out, had to wait for just one more xray, (the doc wanted to do exploratory surgery….!) So I waited, got a glass of wine and came back to 'OK' news..... I sure hope it is not an obstruction!!! Keep us posted!
Sending good thoughts for Ayo…..I hope it isn't an obstruction.
My first B swallowed a huge piece of cloth...off a guy that came into the yard..and I didn't know about until a week later when he got really sick. At the vets before they started doing the barium x-rays he vomited it up!
Thanks everyone for your concern…. Sorry I didn't post sooner but its been a hectic two days!!! The doctor did not have to do the barium contrast because it was clear from the X-ray that there was, what he called a "foreign object" in his stomach.. There was no obstruction however, thank god, it had just irritated the stomach so much that he kept vomiting.. So they treated with an injection of " I think an antibiotic," was explained to me as serving to stop the vomiting, also omeprazole for the acidity, and metamusil!!!! I left him at the vet in the morning yesterday, while I went to work, and picked him up in the afternoon. He didn't throw up again, but last night, when I took him out, I thought he put something in his mouth so I went to check and I noticed that he had chipped one tooth and the the tips his top canines!!! He chipped the really small tooth right behind the canine!! I was so angry.. It seems he was so frustrated in the kennel at the vet at he started biting the cage!!! I couldn't believe it!!! I was first of all really pissed and worried !!! So, good news on his stomach but terrible turn of
events. So this morning I went and told the doctor, he was very upset that no one noticed, and he assured me that that would not be a problem in conformation!! ...so... That's that. IVe been so angry , I wish I had not left him there, but he had never done that!! How could I
have known.. Also, I can't really blame them, I mean, granted they should have noticed he was doing that but!!!! ..... This morning he passed the metamusil, so it seems whatever was in there will pass if it hasn't already!!! Today they repeated the treatment and I have to go back tomorrow....
