Last post I mentioned Darwin was acting funny. She was restless and drinking a lot of water and would yelp or cry out as she was laying down. I mentioned we Googled bloat, which she didn't seem to match the symptoms of. I also Googled swallowing bones. We had given her a knuckle bone on Monday night and she started acting funny Monday around midnight. Tuesday was a very worrisome day, and Tuesday night she was still acting funny. It didn't seem serious enough to rush to the emergency vet, so we waited till the morning to call our regular vet. Sleeping Tuesday night wasn't the best sleep as I was listening to Darwin's every move, and heard her cry out at least twice. By the time we had to get up I was already thinking should we have taken her to the ER, what if I go out there and she's not breathing, what if, what if... of course when I went out to check on her she was fine and annoyed I was making such a fuss over her so early in the morning.
When I called the vet they were fully booked but managed to squeeze us in for an afternoon appointment. We went in and I told them her symptoms and what we were worried about and the vet said she wanted to test Darwin's urine because it sounded like a Urinary Tract Infection. Of course Darwin had peed right before we left the house so her bladder was empty. They kept her for a few hours to get a sample and then we picked her up. They'll call later today with the results of the test, but for now Darwin's on a round of Amoxicillin. I asked if it could be a piece of bone stuck in her stomach, but the vet said because she's not throwing up and she's eating normally it doesn't sound like its a GI issue... WHEW.
When we got home Darwin was worn out after Tuesday at day care then a few hours at the vet so I took advantage of that and painted one of her nails!
hehehehe. She was so tired she didn't even budge or try to see what I was doing to her. Now we both have a matching single sparkley holiday nail. hehe.
