Angl, how is Max doing? I wanted to send this message this morning but my screen froze. I had to leave to take Willy to the doctor and when I got home it was still frozen. I had to delete the app and reinstall it.

I would welcome updates on both Max and Willy. Did the vet say what might be causing Willy's stomach upset? Hope things are improving.

Still testing why Willy has diarrhea and was vomiting. Dr does believe the Rimadyl irritated his digestive system. Uncovered an additional issue that needs dealing with. His abdomen was hard. A x-ray showed what could be rocks. He was being prepped for immediate Surgery but before that, they made him vomit twice. A bone piece came up and there were red pieces of something that couldn't be explained. A second X-ray didn't show those objects so as a precaution they kept him and did a series of barium X-rays instead. Dr called to say Willy is playing games with them. Appeared the barium was not moving along at some point and decided to do surgery. Before actually beginning the surgery they took one more look and the barium began to move again. So, surgery was cancelled. They wanted to do one more picture before I pick him up at 6:30pm today. His blood profile was completely normal, but they want to see him early tomorrow morning for a fasting blood test to send off to check for a variety of other things. He will get another barium X-ray too. He cannot eat anything until after these last tests. He will be started on a 5 day course of Panacur for treatment of Guardia, which hasn't been tested for yet. Also, he will get Metronidazole to calm his digestive tract. They were unable to get any stool as yet. I couldn't get it either; it was just water coming out. Looks like he dodged that surgery and I saved a couple thousand dollars. Where I took him is a hospital and it is expensive, but they are thorough. All the doctors there have been there for a long time. By the way, those red pieces the tech asked about came from a hard rubbery plastic toy I located at home. Threw that away.

WillyBilly: Thanks for checking in! I'm glad Willy was spared the surgery (and you the expense). Giardia can be tricky to detect and take some time to clear up, if he has it. It's just amazing what dogs can get into, and how much they can put you through in the process. I'm glad you have access to such seasoned veterinary care. Hopefully Willy's system will calm down and everything will go more smoothly. I'll keep a good thought for tomorrow's blood tests to yield encouraging results. Fingers crossed! You must be so drained. Take care of yourself.

Wow, sounds like you and Willy have been on a rollercoaster ride today. I hope he gets better real soon.

Max is like super dog or something, lol.
He really hasn't messed with his incision at all. He is totally obssessed with the bare patch on his front leg where they put the IV.
He keeps doing everything he's not supposed to do though, like jumping over the sofa, running around the house really fast. Oh well, just hoping Willy is on the mends soon.

I'm envious! I took Willy's collar off to go to the Dr. She examined the incision and there was a irritation where he may have pulled a stitch. His are hidden like Max's. she said he needs that collar for another 5 days. They are keeping him tonight after all. If the barium is passed, he can come home. He still may have surgery. I asked the tech if she would collar him for tonight. They were able to get a stool sample and it was negative. The Guardia test was negative also.

Angl, how old is Max? Willy was 8 months and was well aware of his man parts even though he has never displayed any male behavior. He did just recently begin lifting his leg slightly to pee.

He is 8 months and never really seemed interested in doing male stuff like licking lol. I think that one reason he's doing so well is that he had hurt his shoulder a week before his surgery. They checked it out on surgery day and prescribed an anti-inflammatory. He's having absolutely no swelling or redness in the incision area. He actually seems to feel better because his shoulder is healing.
I don't know if I told how he he hurt his shoulder or not. He got t-boned by a cute female at the dog park. Lol she flipped him.

You got to watch out for those Female dogs; they can be rough on a boy. Lol. Good that his shoulder injury wasn't serious. Willy was very aware of his male parts and licked lots. I suspected he'd be licking his incision. Just my luck!

Willy is home and everything that was done was normal. There is a blood test that was sent to Texas A&M (TLI/PLI/Cobalamin/Folate). All this affects Pancreas function. The only thing they couldn't due was that PCR stool profile. Panacur should kill any parasites that the PCR profile would find, at this point anyway.
