    UPDATE...

    Willow had a rough night last night, Ray slept w/her in the guest room and she kept throwing up. She is on a soft food diet for 5 days, and I was hand feeding her about 2 tablespoons at a time to see if she could hold it down. I just put in a call to the vet to see if I can give her some anti-nausea meds that I have here for Walter. Other than the vomiting she is acting completely normal... she KEEPS jumping on the couch, and I'm sure that is NOT helping w/the stomach issues. About an hour after she got home she started giving Walter the stink-eye so I knew that she was doing fine... Ray is sleeping now since he was up all night w/her, and after taking Lily to school I'm home w/Willow all day.

    When I talked to the vet last night she said that her nares were tight, but she was surprised how LONG her pallet was... she said it was 1/2 inch longer than it should have been and she needed to use a hook to get all of it. She is pretty small at 35 pounds, and her mouth is small as well... I had suspected her pallet was long, but I'm shocked. Thank God we had this procedure done!!!

    amazing they were able to take care of everything in one go! when Lola had her elongated palate taken care of, even though she was sick to her stomach and very tired, we could tell immediately that she could breathe better. huge relief for us that day, and we're relieved it went well for Willow and you too!

    What vomiting?!! Lol

    I gave her two doses of the anti-vomiting med and she threw them each up about 30 min later... Ugh!!! I'm going to try and give her pepcid here in a bit...

    SOOOOO glad to hear, all went well, stinky that she has an upset belly, what did the vet say about the medicine??

    Hope Ms Willow is feeling better soon!! HUGS from Me and Ellie.

    Ellie had a tough night too, she got the poops overnight, every two hours, but the only damn thing I can think of she was playing really hard with her jolly ball on Sunday that had tons of mud, chopped up leaves (none that could get stuck, hubby mulches up the leaves in TINY Peices), and OH so much fun to clean up - HAHAHAHAHAH!!... BUT Hubby (Bob) is home with her today, and I have been checking in like a crazy mommy, and she getting better, and snoozing on the couch


    Thanks and much Love,

    Melissa - Ellie's Mom

    I am glad to hear Willow made it out of surgery OK. I don't recall Bentley having the puking episodes when he had his procedure done. Our vet said use Pepcid but only 10mg of Fumotidine (?sp) aka Pepcid AC which has 20 mg of the active ingredient for Jewel's empty tummy syndrome episodes.


    Bottom line, glad she is home and she will be better soon enough.

    OK so this is really weird... I'm NOT sure if her tummy finally got some of the anti-vomiting med OR she just didn't like the can food from the vets. I made her some sirloin & rice, and she just gobbled it up... NO vomiting!!! The can food is that Puring EN Gastroenteric stuff... she would only eat it from my hand.

    I made plenty of sirloin and rice, so I'm just going to give her that for the next 5 days... spoiled baby!!!

    I got her the original 10 mg pepcid, but I haven't given it to her yet... the vet said that she thinks it may be a reaction to the morphine that she gave her, some dogs are more sensitive. OR it could be excessive stomach acid... her surgery was SO late yesterday because of an emergency. I just gave her sirloin & rice and she has been fine, so maybe she can't handle that damn canned food from the vets. She literally almost knocked me over getting to the sirloin... Lol

    As she should be, the Vet perscribed that Purina EN CRAP for Ellie a little while back when she had some tummy trouble, when MS Ellie swallowed a squeaker a Nannys house, that we didnt know about, and within 15 min of feeding that stuff came right back up, SO Ms Ellie Had NO more of that, and mommy made her Boiled Chicken and Rice, with pumpkin, and some Pecid, and she was good as new, once we found that darn squeaker!!


    Thanks and much Love,

    I'm so happy that all went well. I'm sure she just can't handle the prescription food...smart girl. Sirloin will beat it coming and going...if she still has to vomit...
