My deepest thanks everyone for your care and prayers. She very much needs them. She is on an antibiotic in case its lepto related. I do not vaccinate against lepto as the vaccine only works against a handful of the strains and she is extremely low risk to exposure.

So let me back up a bit. Scout had a cyst removed two days after Christmas (Mast cell tumor) and was on pain meds and anti biotics for a week. These pills were wrapped in a bit of the eternity that is Christmas Ham and of course Maddy got a bit as well. When the meds were completed diva Maddy started not wanting her food. I thought she was just being a brat and holding out for goodies. I would pick up her dish and shed eat break fast, but maybe not dinner. This went on for a couple of days and this has happened before.


Friday she ate breakfast but not dinner. And I noticed she wasnt drinking. The weekend went on with her continuing to refuse food, I even offered her roasted chicken (yes, we all had enough with this damn ham) and she wouldnt even sniff it. Sunday afternoon she started throwing up bile, so we got her in Monday.


Bringing her back on Tuesday for the scan, determined that she needed to stay and was given antibiotics. She was still throwing up overnight so they added anti nausea medication. After 12 hours they ran labs again and doc reported to me that she was a bit more compromised but we would stay the course. She wasnt throwing up anymore at least. I visited her again after work today and she really looks like she feels awful. But she did wag her tail feebly and heaeded for the door to leave. That was hard. I sat on the floor with her and explaned I cant bring you home until you convince your kidneys to stop slacking.


The hospital will run another round tomorrow afternnon and see if another 24 hours can help her turn the corner. I know she is getting the very best of care. Please keep praying for my big girl.
Bailey Guns, little Maddy weighs 86 pounds. But she really would like to be a lap dog.

I just spoke with the doc and after another 24 hours her numbers are still dropping and I am crushed. I’m going to give her another 24 hours because I have nothing to loose except my very much loved dog. Please keep us in prayer.
I’ll visit her again today after work. Doc says the anti nausea meds are an anti inflammatory as well so she shouldn’t be uncomfortable.
