Kamahi's health strikes again.
I feel I should share this here, because Kamahi "grew up" on this page. Most of you know his story, just as I "know" all of your dogs and their stories. This place has always felt like coming back home, so it only feels right to keep everyone informed on how one of the older "house" dogs is doing. I hope that doesn't sound too
corny! Anyway, here goes.. Also, I'm going to put this here just incase:
*WARNING: There may be slightly gross information ahead*
The series of events this morning turned from an upset stomach to bouts of bloody vomiting & bloody diarrhea. I rushed him to the Vet ASAP, but it wasn't until the third Vet that we found answers.
Basically, the blood could be a result of getting into some cooked chicken bones (over 48 hours ago, now) and those irritating the lining of his stomach. It was confirmed via x-ray & ultrasound that his insides were luckily NOT perforated. OR; a tumor was found hidden inside his abdomen today. The next theory was that it could be hemmorhaging.
So, the Vet is holding him under 24-hour care tonight, while he is on an IV drip, antibiotics, and anti-nausea meds. They will also be taking a blood panel and testing for hemmorhaging. I'll find out in the morning what the plan is from here, and hopefully he'll be stable enough for surgery to remove the mass. I'll pick him up tomorrow evening. Again, hopefully, although the Vet is pretty confident he should be okay. The tumor is a bit more pressing, however. I will update again as soon as I have the results back.
you guys. Thank you for always being around through thick and thin. I'm feeling very nostalgic today with all of the deja vu and I must say, I miss everyone here. Hope you and yours are doing well and in good health. Hopefully I will be around a lot more. <3
