(skip the next paragraph if you're not up for a poop story)
We came home from work today and as we approached the door Jason said, "why does it smell like poop?". I told him to keep his voice down in case it's the neighbors cooking. We walked in and what did we find? Poop... 2 piles in the kitchen. Seems like the Rimadyl was making her have diarrhea. Gross. At least she did it on the tile floor and not on the carpet in the living room. I took her out again where more poop came out, this time with a little blood in it. So we called the vet to tell them about the diarrhea and the blood, and they told us to stop the Rimadyl, bring in a stool sample and they'll switch her medication. Hopefully her fecal float test comes back negative for any worms or any other problems, we'll hear from them in the morning. Oi.
So Dar is on Tramadol (still) and she now has to start taking Metronidazole.
We're still hoping her walk will stop looking so gimpy and the W word will be ruled out.
In less poopy news, I must say our blogging friends are the best! Besides all the fingers and paws that are crossed for Dar and the well wishes coming our way, our blog friend Nala sent Darwin a get well gift!
Darwin was quite eager to get at what was inside.
A piggy bottle buddy, Zukes treats and a sweet card! I was trying to take pictures, but Darwin really wanted to play with her new toy...
Thank you Nala and Amber! Hopefully Darwin will heal up soon and be able to have a play date the next time you guys are back in Seattle!!
