Hope to get back to fly fishing soon..and the dog is still sick!

Our little dog Pixie is still sick post-op 6 days.  Its not uncommon for people, and now I know dogs, to end up with GERD after a major surgery.  Usually a bit of gut rest, some proton pump inhibitors...omeprazole, and the GERD slowly heals itself if one can keep things down.

 Poor Pixie has a bad case of the GERD. Every meals comes back up no matter the food.   She spent the night at the hospital with IV therapy and some IV meds to help her increase stomach motility so that food and fluids move through faster instead of coming back up.  We picked her up today but the GERD is still there and we are praying she just gets better.
Right now our life is trying to get her better.  Meds, shots, and puke!  Oh well it could be worse I guess. We do truly love her and want her to get her quality of life back.

We know that soon she should be feeling better.

  3. Sorry that Pixie isn't feeling so hot...It's never fun when the little guys/gals are sick. I'm sure she'll be back to her normal self in no time. Hang in there, and give Pixie some love!
