I'll try to keep this brief, just left my pup at the vet.
Sunday ate great, fussing with ears (ears look great)
Monday 7am, solid stool no appetite, skipped breakfast
Monday 10am, white foamy vomit
Monday 12pm, diarrhea, just pinkish water with white bougainvillea flowers shooting out
diarrhea and vomiting continue thru today
Today 11:30 vomit has red mucousy blood in it, I'm at the vet by 12:30
She hasn't eaten since Sunday night, but has been drinking water.
The vet wants to check everything, pancreas, blood work, x-rays, anti-vomit injection, IV hydrate, $1,100 estimate before I left.
This vet used to be amazing, but got bought by a large corporate vet group (VCA). Most people say they are a huge rip-off now (but the vets are very good).
Any advice? I have approved everything except xrays (for now).
I can't afford a several thousand dollar vet bill every time she eats something in the garden and gets a stomach ache, but I, of course, would do for her anything that is needed.
Crappy position to be in with a sick pup and a vet that your unsure of their "best interest"...
