#ScaryWeek #SafeAndSound #HomeAgainHomeAgain #dogsofinstagram#browndog #rescuedog#muttsofinstagram #instadog #ilovemydog#DollyParton
Hi, friends. Female Owner here. Dolly had a really scary week last week. It began with some MAJOR gastrointestinal issues that were undiagnosable, continued with some petechiae spots appearing on her tum and in her ears, and topped off with an irregular heart beat. After a week's stay at the vet, lots of IV fluids and meds (see shaved leg), a sonogram to make sure all her organs were a-okay (see shaved tummy), and an echo-cardiogram (see shaved spots on both sides of her chest), still no diagnoses, but she's feeling great and is back home. She's even slowly having her beloved kibble reintegrated into her diet. I'm telling you all of this for a few reasons. 1) To remind you that veterinarians are AMAZING and we're so lucky to have access to them. 2) To let you know what's going on when you see Dolly's shaved spots in future posts. 3) To tell you to hug your dogs a little tighter tonight. We almost lost Dolly Parton last week. I left the vet crying every night. Every time I look at her now I smile and am so grateful to have her back and healthy. And, don't worry, she's had full bed, couch, and AC privileges and more scratches, cuddles, and pets than she can probably handle.
