She was fine on Friday. About 2:00 Saturday morning, she threw up, but I thought it was because she swallowed one of her bedtime cookies whole. She seemed okay, if a bit subdued all day Saturday.
Sunday, it was obvious that she wasn't feeling well. Although she ate breakfast and dinner, she wasn't as crazed as usual. Typically, she would bark, howl, and bounce three feet into the air. She also had some very loose bowel movements.
Monday morning, she threw up again at around 3:45, and was obviously depressed. She didn't even try to eat her breakfast, just stood there and looked at it. I took her to the vet that afternoon, and she was tentatively diagnosed with gastroenteritis, and sent home with Clavamox, Forti-Flora, and some canned i/d. I managed to coax her into eating about a fourth of a can, which she threw up a couple of hours later.
Yesterday, I took her back to the vet because she had gotten obviously worse overnight. She would lie down, then get up and lie down the other direction every 15 to 30 minutes of so all through the night. An x-ray showed no obvious blockage (which was my main concern at the time), and she was admitted for observation. She deteriorated during the day. About 6:15, the vet called, and asked if I wanted to transfer her to the emergency clinic so that she could be monitored overnight. When I picked her up at almost 7:00, she was practically comatose. When we got her to the e-clinic, the vet decided to do a quick ultrasound, and saw fluid in her abdomen. A tap showed it was blood. We decided it was best to let her go, and had her euthanized.
