Oh God what an evening... - One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?

Oh God what an evening...
I watched "The Family Stone" late this afternoon with the dogs laying with me on the couch. Cute movie--love Luke Wilson. Anyway, the movie is done and I get the dogs up and ssit the older one, Brady down on the ground. He just stands there looking like he's ready to go back to sleep so I pick him up to put him up on the ottoman so he can go back to sleep. So I pick him up and he just stands there, I turn my back for a minute, turn around, he starts to get down, falls in the floor and then starts screaming! It was almost like he had a seizure. All I can do is pet him and try to soothe him until he stops. He moves his head then and stick his tongue out and sits up. I immediately call the vet and she tells me to bring him in. So I grab the little one, Aeryn, and put her in the car and then grab Brady and get him into the car. I call roommie and tell her to meet me at the vet. I get him there in under 20 minutes, but not before he throws up all over himself in my car.

By the time I get him there, he's a tad more alert and even wags his tail when Dr. Judy comes in to see him. She drew blood work and injected him with fluids and sent him home with us. We'll have the blood results tomorrow.

We just finished washing off the puke in the sink and are now feeding them scrambled eggs cause they're easy on his stomach.

My heart just can't take this.

So jenlynn820 now you know why I wasn't around for the votes or banners. So sorry.

That sounds almost like a stroke. Sorry to be an alarmist. I hoe everything turns out alright. *hugs for you and the puppy*

Sounds like maybe it was a seizure. *sigh* So we're hoping the blood work comes back good and it was just a fluke.

Hs the dog done this before? My cat got violently ill about 3 years ago and I had a similar experience - it was out of nowhere and I was at the vet's literally every 2nd or 3rd day for two months, in debt to my eyeballs. He's okay now and alive, but it was a hell of a scare.

Never this. Oh he's been a little wobbly when he's gotten up from a deep sleep, but never this screaming! Scared the shit outta me. And yes, today was $153, after spending $151 last Thursday for the little one to get meds and an x-ray. And she goes back next week for her annual shots and another urine analysis.

Yeah, it really scared me. Scared him too. He's stuck pretty close to us tonight.

I'm glad I had my cell on me and in speed dial. I didn't have to move from his side right after it happened to call.

Scared the crap outta me. He seems pretty content right now.

he seems fine today--doing the usual dog things. Now we're just waiting for the vet to call with the blood results.

Thanks for being so understanding. I honestly hadn't thought about it since he had his problem.

Oooh poor baby I'm so sorry for him. It's okay now?
araestel From: araestel Date: May 24th, 2006 11:41 am (UTC) (Link)
He's back to doing normal dog things today. We're just waiting on the vet now to let us know if something odd was in the test.

*crosses fingers8

You must of been so scared. I hope your pooch is allright!! *hugs tight*
araestel From: araestel Date: May 24th, 2006 11:47 am (UTC) (Link)
I was *very* scared. I lost my Boston Terrier when I was 14. I was home alone and she had a heart attack and I couldn't do anything for her. Broke my heart. I swore I'd never get *that* attached to an animal again.

Then came Brady.

So just to hear him screaming and there was nothing I could do--my nerves are still shot.

So now we're waiting to hear from the vet with the test result. *crosses fingers*

He's back to doing dog things today. Seems fine. But we still have to hear from the vet. *sigh*

Thanks for caring honey! *smooshes*

Best wishes all the way. I know it's really scary when our little ones get sick and can't tell us what's wrong. It's fucking terrifying. Hope he's better and it's nothing serious.
araestel From: araestel Date: May 24th, 2006 11:50 am (UTC) (Link)
Me too! Scared the shit outta me. I lost my Boston Terrier when I was home alone at age 14. She had a heartattack and there was nothing I could do except hold her. I do NOT want to go through that again. *sporks eyes*
wynterhawk From: wynterhawk Date: May 24th, 2006 09:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh my lord! I hope he's ok.
araestel From: araestel Date: May 24th, 2006 11:50 am (UTC) (Link)
He's back to doing his normal things today. So far, so good. *crossses fingers*
