Update on Penny

The Bad News

She was sick all night. From both ends. A few times I woke up to let her out, a few times I didn't hear her :o(. So I basically spent most of the night playing with the new Spot Bot.

The Good News

I took her to the Vet today & they don't think there is anything too seriously wrong with her. She was really dehydrated and they gave her a bunch of subcutaneous fluid. It made her look like a camel! And on the walk home, it all settled onto her left side. Hard to tell from these pics, but she's very swollen.

She's supposed to rest tonight & have nothing but water. If she doesn't vomit again by morning, she can have some boiled chicken (or in our case, buffalo) and rice. Then she goes on Flaygl for a few days & we hope to have her good as new.

So thanks to everypup who sent good vibes for Penny. They've WORKED!!!

Take care please.

Hope you're feeling a bit brighter now Penny. Your side does look swollen. I never heard of doing that for fluids before!

Poor Penny. I had to have fluids once and they laughed at me for looking hunchback.

I hope you're feeling better. If not, I will take one for the team and eat your buffalo.

Oh Penny, I's glad there's nothing seriously wrong with you... But look at the left side of your shoulder! Yikes! That's one big swollen arm shoulder you got there... But it should go down soon. Heal well my friend!
