Yesterday afternoon, Anna Rose started to tremble as if she were in pain. We thought that her back was going down. As our vets were unavailable, we had to take her to an emergency vet, who determined that it was NOT a back problem, but an abdominal one, requiring xrays and blood work, which she will have done today at our vet.. She make have eaten a foreign object or have another kind of bowel blockage, ore pancreatitis. (She is the only pack member who does not eat everything in sight- she is very picky so we hope and pray that it isn't the first two things) . She would only eat her canned foodables if Geoff hand fed her and she screamed in pain when the vet, during his exam, touched parts of her tummy.
We had a sleepless night and her vet's appointment is for 11, if we cannot get her in sooner. PLEASE PRAY FOR US! Geoff as you know is out of work and she is his baby- her nickname (to which she does call when used ONLY by him, is "Fur") Anna Rose slept in the big bed curled up with me till 4 AM then her Daddy till we got up just now at 7:30- she would not eat her bedtime snackie and refused her tramadol in the pill pocket, but did drink water. She dozed most of the night but would wake for us to pet her. She went out for her morning constitutional and had no problems and had no pain when we picked her up. She was even playing her favorite game with Geoff if catch me if you can!
We are praying that surgery is NOT needed, but your prayers are for her and for Geoff.
