Re: First Trial

That is awesome. Very unusal for a first time dog to go out and put up a 4 and 4. I always tell new handlers to be happy if their new dog goes out and consistently puts 2/2 on the card for the first season. Congratulations.

Re: How long would you wait

She is out of surger and the doc seems really optimistic. He said he thinks we got her fixed up. Turns out it was an ACE Bandage. About 2 feet long actually. He said she should be back to normal before I know it.

Re: How long would you wait

THanks. I just talked to the vet. He said he had some good news. The Barium was not making its way through her system. There is something causing a blockage. I say god news because it explains the symptoms and is treatable.

Her nose is dry and warm. The color returns to her gums about a second after pressing on them so i don't think it is anemia. She has pretty much just laid in her house with her head hung out the door all night. Like I said she is drinking water, and had solid stools today but still won't eat.
