JoJo is at the hospital...

Our Little Girl is Sick... My wife took our little dog, JoJo to the vet this morning around 9am after no improvement in her condition. This whole thing started on Wednesday morning but the previous night, there had been no signs of illness -- come Wednesday, she ate only once and drank a lot. Minutes later, she vomited much of the contents back out and since then, she hasn't really eaten (almost nothing) and drank.

Wednesday during the day, I didn't control her drinking and she vomited the liquid back out. Afterwards, we limited the amount of water available and on Thursday, we changed over to a pedialite-type drink but also limited the amount. She drank each time it was given and luckily, she hasn't vomited any of it. What concerns me is that she hasn't eat and is becoming weaker each day. When we decided to take her to the vet today (Friday, June 4th), she almost lost of her balance down the stairs.

I helped her board my wife's SUV and she took her to the vet, there's been no update since 9:30AM.

JoJo is Back from the Vets

JoJo is a little better now We got JoJo back from the vet and he believed that her chronic intestinal disease acted up again that caused her to retain fluid in her belly. The doctor drained about a liter of fluid from her belly and now she's a little more interactive. She's not allowed to have solid food for another 24 hours and we start with meds (same ones that were prescribed to her when she was first diagnosed with this illness).

I'm glad that it didn't require surgery or overnight stay. Anyways, she's back in her house, sleeping in places she's feels comfortable.
