    Just got home and this is 1st post I opened....what a perfectly HORRIBLE day
    y'all endured, my heart goes out to y'all, dear Ellie.

    Please keep us updated and I'm praying with all here that Wellie recovers asap
    and w/ no issues. I think y'all saved his life by being on top of it and taking him
    in as quickly...GREAT pawrents! Sending lov, comfort & strength, try to rest!

    Thanks guys.

    For whatever reason, we thought the prognosis was good. Never thought to ask the vet if there's a chance he won't make it.

    Just now though, I looked it up- apparently the prognosis is not good for this diagnosis.

    I can't believe this is happening. He was in our care for two weeks and winded up in the hospital with a condition that results in deaths more often than not. I'm shocked right now.
    This bullie better pull through!!!

    Thinking of you all and sending good thoughts. I just noticed from your avatar that you added a new cutie to your fam and, thought, wow, i've missed so much ...

    It's fantastic that it's a 24/7 hospital, nothing could be better than that.

    Ellie, I was aware it's not a great thang but truly, I believe it makes a big
    difference when they don't get in as quickly as Wellie did. I'm believing all
    will be well with him and a 24 hr vet hospital is about as good as it gets.
    It's so difficult, Honey but try and remain strong & rest, I just feel GOD is
    got this, I really do. Praying over Wellie & y'all all night long <3

    Aww, I'm so sorry, so scary. He will be OK, I'm sure the doctor would have said something if he was at risk in any way. Thinking of you all<3

    OMG just read this, how worrying, poor Wellie and you, thinking and praying for you !! He is in good hands with the vet and you.
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    He will pull through this. Like 2BullyMama said you took him in as soon as you realized how bad it had become. Be strong for him and muffin boy, he's got a bunch of angels watching over him and he has my prayers.

    Thats nice to have a hospital open 24 hours a day! Give him a big kiss from all of us when you see him.

    Agree with the gang- had you waited a day or two to see if he would perk up before taking him in-- then he would be in severe danger, but you knew something was off and took him in right away. Have you gotten any progress reports on how he's doing yet?

    Thanks everyone.

    Just so you guys know how fast this became an issue- last week he was at 3 different vets.

    Monday 9/22- Took him to his regular vet for a check-up because we just got him (she even did a chest x-ray because he was throwing up). Everything was fine. She did mention it was difficult to hear because his breathing is very loud.


    Tuesday 9/23- The next day, we had an appointment at the hospital he's in now, with the vet that was supposed to do his neuter and palate/nare surgery. She also checked him from head to toe, listened to his heart and lungs, and had a consultation about his patella luxation (soft tissue/ortho surgery her specialties and I trust her 100%).
    She said she "thinks" everything's fine but it's difficult to tell over his breathing. He's very, very loud.

    Thursday 9/25- Two days later we took him to a vet a few blocks away, because I thought he had fleas (false alarm). She checked him from head to toe as well and also listened to his lungs. Again, everything was fine.


    10/4 - He's being hospitalized for aspiration pneumonia. I'm baffled. How quickly does this develop??

    Three vets, no one was able to hear or see anything.

    Just the worst luck.
