GUEST,Scoville at Dad's BS: So. How's everybody these days? (134* d) RE: BS: So. How's everybody these days? 04 Jul 07


We were fine last week but Sunday night my dog got into the garbage and chewed up a rancid turkey carcass, and now she's in the hospital with the worst case of pancreatitis the vet has ever seen, bacterial gastroenteritis, peritonitis, and had surgery this afternoon to remove a foreign body. It looked like a turkey bone sliver on the x-ray but it turned out to be an old piece of wire, ingested a long time ago, that had worked its way through her stomach lining and into her abdominal cavity. Not the cause of the current problems but probably an aggravator. Her pancreas and peritoneum looked so bad that the vet took biopsies to be screened for cancer (our first dog, unrelated but of the same breed, developed cancer at the same age. Diamond's about thirteen), just in case.

She is one sick little dog. I went by to visit her once she was awake and she was medically OK (well, as OK as she was going to be, considering) but looked as though she wished she were anywhere but here. The vet seems to think she'll come out OK but we're pretty damned worried about her.
