Update on Mags

My little princess is still at the vet. The doc called yesterday and said he was waiting one more day on the surgery. She is still not eating and he started her on IV fluids. They are still doing x-rays to see where the barium is going. Apparently it isn’t moving through her gut as it’s supposed to.

I sat at my desk at work and cried like a stressed, hormonal pregnant woman, because I couldn’t pick her up yesterday. I didn’t have the balls to ask what my vet bill was – home girl has been getting an x-ray every hour for the past 2 days. I know it’s all worth it but can you sell a kidney while your pregnant??

I got another call from my amazing vet yesterday afternoon. He said Maggie had “passed” the squeaker from a toy and a sh*t-ton of pine straw. Hopefully this was the problem and she didn’t ingest the entire toy. She’s still at the vet today and they will start her on a bland diet. If she keeps it down she MIGHT be able to come home tonight.

I went home last night and threw away EVERY toy we had. This has been a terrible experience. If you have any tips on toys that are indestructible please let me know. I kept her tennis balls and one kong toy but anything she can tear up I tossed.

Thanks for your sweet comments and thoughts. I can feel the love and I’m sure Mags can too! Y’all are awesome!

Aww - I hate that, but atleast she passed it and is hopefully on the road to revovery. In PetSmart there is a row of toys that they say are indestructible when it comes to dogs. I would check that out. Could they have not seen that thing in an x-ray though?

Aww that's so sad! I absolutely HATE coming home and Lexi not being there to greet me. Have you tried Nylabones - they're the only thing Lexi is allowed to have because she too eats anything she can (including tennis balls). We get her the Napolean and she LOVES it. It's supposed to be indestructible; however, we do end up having to buy her a new one every 3-4 months. I hope Maggie starts to feel better and gets to come home very soon!

** Oh yeah, and thanks so much for the award - it just made my day! :)

squeakers are terrible, but they are Baylee's favorite toy. She finds where the squeaker is inside and then tears it to pieces until she can get the squeaker out. crazy! hope maggie is feeling much better! atleast she didnt get into paint like you originally thought! :) -Brittni
