I don't have a lot of time to explain, but I was hoping for some forum support..on Monday Oakley managed to get ahold of his nylon leash and eat about 12-14 inches of it in little pieces (he's done this before and always pooped and puked it out)…he was fine until yesterday...he threw up in the morning (mostly all leash) and didnt want to eat breakfast...he deteriorated throughout the day, getting dehydrated, tail down, ears down and limpish..and still refusing to eat. After an emergency ER visit and an inconclusive xray they recommended he go to the hospital to get IV fluids and supportive care. While he made it through the night with no puking he still is refusing to eat, and is not improving despite medications and agressive fluids. He's going into surgery now. I'm a wreck right now in every way u can imagine.
