High Park Fire

Pixie is home from the hospital.

Well she did ok.  Turns out she has swallowed a corn cob and it lodged in her lower stomach.  The vet stated it would have killed her had they not gone in and removed it.
I guess this is a common thing dogs will do.  The vet says that dogs will swallow things whole instead of chew them if the dog thinks someone will grab the food from them.  Thus the whole corn cob in the stomach.
Pixie is home now and seems really sore, but hey they just did the complete oil change on her belly.  I will give her several IM shots of doggie Morphine to help her with the pain and then slowly start introducing sips of fluids and tomorrow some small amounts of food.  Wow this is just like working in the recovery room at the hospital.

Thanks for the kind thoughts.

Lonny, Jocelyn, and especially, Pixie.
