It has been a grueling 72 hours. Bentley would not eat and of course one of the meds they gave us requires food. Bentley would not eat and had no interest in food or water for 48 hours and anything he ate came back up including the water. Of course the wife started going into full concern mode and called the vet. They told us to discontinue his meds and we chilled the rest of the evening. The following morning (yesterday) Bentley went over to Jewel's bowl that had some boned chicken and kibble in it and he gobbled it down (Amen) before we could get him outside for his morning pee. We got his antibiotic in him and a pain pill. Everything stayed down and I knew we were on our road to recovery. At lunch, I made a cheese omlette for him coupled with his softened kibble (used unsalted chicken broth) and some boned chicken which he scarfed down. We then gave him the med Carprofen which requires a full tummy which also stayed down.
We are doing stretching exercises 3 times a day as well as using ice after the stretches. The icing stops today. I guess the moving to go pee caused some bleeding as he has a hematoma on the inside of his upper leg. We are keeping him in a pen and he is only allowed to come out to go potty. Since yesterday was a gorgeous day compared to today here in the Mid-Atlantic, I had Bentley outside where he laid like a very good boy taking in some rays while I enjoyed a relief cigar. We went back into the house afterwards.
This morning, Bentley's appetite is back and now he is whining because he is in a pen and most definitely wants out. Sorry bub.
