Please can Shiloh get some POTP?
First, I want to thank WHN and Miss Tasha from Dachsies With Moxie for posting this earlier- I didn't have time before I left for work this morning.
Now then, I'm afraid Shiloh, for the most part, is no better. When he practically turned tail and walked AWAY, rather quickly, when I fed him his breakfast, I suspected something a bit more serious than eating the wrong thing. At least when I got home he had only upchucked twice in a bit more than 8 hours compared to 3 times last evening a little over 3 hours. He did drink some for me earlier this eve but he did NOT eat dinner or the rice and turkey broth I offered.
I happened to mention on my Facebook wall that before this all started, Shiloh had been licking his fuzzy dog bed rather forcefully (didn't tear it or anything) but really licked it hard - the bed is now outside, away from where Shiloh can get to it. Stephanie Lilley as in River's mom from
Down River reminded me that Shiloh could have ended up with something like a hairball and it could be obstructing his intestines. I have been firmly pressing on different areas of his tummy and along the side but nothing seemed to bother him and no tummy grumblies-rumblies. IF Shiloh is NOT eating AGAIN in the morning, I WILL call the vet AND Shiloh will get there somehow. And, altho I hope and pray Shiloh does NOT need their services tonite, I remembered there is an ER vet just about a block away.
Ok, so that is it for now - I need to go get some work done.
