Dozer is still not out of the woods , We took Dozer to the vet at 1:00, as he was drooling, water from his mouth and threw up again just before we left. The appt was for 2:00, but we took him early and she assessed him to see if he was in any immediate danger. She aid all his vitals were fine, temperature was fine, she felt his tummy and colon, and could feel a wad there, she wasn't sure if it was stool or the paper towel. She did an internal check of his butt, and asked us to take him for a walk to see if he would go poop again. We walked him outside and he pooped and passed another piece of the paper towel, I kept the poop and brought it into the vet for her to see. She agreed that it was a piece of paper towel. She wanted an x- ray to see exactly where the obstruction was. She said if its in the colon were ok, because he would pass it, but if its in the small intestine, then he may need surgery because it will swell up, damn that Bounty Quicker upper, why does it have to be so absorbent? She took an x- ray, and it shows a good size wad of the paper, and its partially in the colon, and partially in the small intestine. So where we are right now, is she says it can go either way, she gave him an hour of IV fluids, an injection for pain, and one to stop the vomiting . She also gave us some medicine to coat his stomach. We are on a watch him like a hawk and if anything changes were off to the Emergency hospital. She sent us home with a list of all the medications she had given him, the x-rays, and 3 cans of fibre food. She called us a few minutes ago, to see how he was doing, right now he's really sleepy from the medications, resting very comfortably beside me, and vomiting has stopped. She told me to give him the stomach coating medication and then wait about an hour, and feed him the fibre food, she wants to see if he keeps this down. If he doesn't then that's not a good sign, and we're off to the emerg hospital. I'm hoping he does keep it down, and that the fibre food is able to push the paper towel down into his colon, so he can pass it. We're really worried and keeping a close eye on him, I'm keeping him right beside me. Please pray for him, and hope he doesn't need surgery tonight. I'm freaking out at the thought of my baby having to be cut open.
I posted the pics of the X-ray, it shows where the wad is, but I don't know if its too dark to see on the picture , it's the long black shadow that you can see on the X-ray
