Mom says I came through surgery well, but they found more masses than they expected. One which was wrapped around my jugular vein. Dr. McGee did an amazing job extracting everything and I will start feeling better soon we hope! Please continue to pray for me! #sickpuppy
This is Bonecrusher❤️. 5 month old pit mix who was surrendered due to parvo virus and a lack of resources for treatment. Owner even tried Pepto Bismol to treat the pup that he of course vomited, which you can’t really see, but he came in with bright pink on his face and body. He’s a big kid, and I think he can fight this. Parvo vaccinations weren’t kept up with so that put him at a higher risk when exposed to the virus, probably in his owners yard. Hopeful that the littermates don’t catch it and the grateful owner now knows how it can turn a brightly named pup into a sick baby, breaking hearts all around. So with education he will hopefully keep up with the rest of the litters health, and everyone finds happy homes. #parvosucks#vaccinateyourpuppy#vaccinate#parvopuppy#pitbull#sickpuppy
I’ve been in and out of the vet with some annoying sickies lately... don’t be fooled by these pictures. This was my first vet visit when I was a little angel and not scared all. The past couple times have not been as fun 😖... but my mom says these nice people r gonna make me better. Thx @caringhandsvet! I’m crossing my paws this medicine works!
Gigi had another episode earlier this afternoon. We got her to calm down and took her to the vet. He thinks she’s having muscle spasms and gave her some pain meds. We’re working on making her feel better #getwellsoon#sickpuppy#gigi
It’s wild how quickly little ones can crash. Yesterday evening, M was riding her bike, playing, then enjoying a Taylor house taco night! .
4 hrs later, she was awake, burning up and 🤮. Yuck. Poor girl was such a mess, she’d never thrown up before! (THANK YOU GOD for giving us almost 3 years before she had to experience this) .
It was a long night trying to keep her comfortable and sleeping. (See dark circles). After “sleeping” on her floor all night, I’m seriously questioning our hardwood floors 🤦🏻♀️😖 Ouchie. .
Silver lining (because there is ALWAYS one): I am spending the entire morning snuggling here while A’s at school. And I don’t feel guilty about it for one second. There’s no where else in the world I need to be right now. #motherhoodmoments
Reflecting tonight... Last October (2017) was a tough month for us. Lexi was hospitalized after constant vomiting and urination, refusing to eat or drink, and eventually bloody stool. We still don’t really know what happened except that it was some kind of food allergy or sensitivity. We have been very careful since then with her diet. Some pups just have more sensitive tummies than others! We are so glad that this year Lexi is healthy and feeling great. 💕
💩 🐛UPDATE 🐛 💩
Mom has been getting down and dirty in my poops today. My last poop 💩 was straight diarrhea, so mom inspected...she found these long white things she called tape worms. 🐛 She took a sample to the vet to confirm just now, so we will know for sure in the AM and hopefully get on some meds. Thanks for sending the love our IG fam! You are all so caring!! We love you so much. ❤️🐾
