Gotta love the vet.
They love me. I think I have given enough to pay their house payment a few times over. Well, maybe not that much.
It seems that dogs can’t get human germs, so Winston needed to go to the vet (he was still throwing up yesterday morning). An abdomen x-ray and $225 later, and he found quite a few rocks, a toy or 2 (he even asked me if I recognized the toy in the x-ray!!!), and a possible blockage (fan-freaking-tastic.)
Oh, and the kicker? He has hip dysplacia. When they told me this I was sorta freaking out at the thought of stomach surgery costs, so I just started laughing… and couldn’t stop. My vet probably thought I had lost it. It means surgery in a few years to fix it. Another million dollars coming their way.
He is eating fine (well of course he is eating fine. he is on a special -vet recommended- diet of cottage cheese, chicken and rice. he thinks he is in heaven as I am on strict orders to feed him as much as he wants. did i mention that he is a pug, and they are prone to overeating and weight issues?). He did stop throwing up, so no stomach surgery today.
At least something went in my favor.
