This is Bailey, our beloved best fur baby, who will be 3 in November. Thursday night she began to vomit massive amounts of her dog food. We got it cleaned up and went to bed. Awoke Friday morning to a horror scene. Vomit everywhere, the couches, dinning room floor, kids bathroom floor, again tons of food, meanwhile she had not eaten Thursday evening. She refused to eat all day Friday, drank water by the tons and laid around being lethargic and not herself. I tried to make her boiled rice, she refused, bread, she also refused. She laid outside a lot Friday, not sure if she had been vomiting but she smells like vomit. Saturday at 8:30 we brought her to her normal veterinary who ran blood work, fecals and xrays. Went to pick her up, said her Red blood cells are elevated, her white blood cells at elevated and her potassium is low, which was his main concern. Said to bring her to ER vet hospital to give IV potassium and recheck blood work. His fee $830. We went to the ER animal hospital and they said the xrays looked suspicious and wanted to do their own and blood work and the potassium therapy. That estimate is $1400-1800, They did X-ray, came back in room said it looks like a blockage and if it was their dog they would do the exploratory surgery to remove the blockage as they fear she will just get worse and the blockage will cause her intestines to leak, ultimately leading to death. The estimate for this is $2800-4300. There is no guarantee they will be able to save her and asked if she goes into cardiac arrest would we want them to resuscitate, of course we would... I’m so upset that the first set said there was no blockage, we were charged almost a thousand dollars to be told nothing, to them go to an ER hospital and be told she needs surgery. We are going through a lot right now. Anything would help if you could find it in your heart to help Bailey and us out. We’d greatly appreciate it, she our world and our girls.
