Our evening

Last night after we had our dinner and the dogs had theirs Gus got really sick. He was throwing up alot and then got unresponsive. We took him to the 24 hour vet and they thought it might be Parvo, so they had to run alot of tests on him they were telling us that if it was Parvo it would cost around $3,000 and no they wouldn't take payments (jerks). So we had to actually consider putting him to sleep which stressed us out. So at about 11:40 pm they told us that it wasn't Parvo and all his organs looked fine, but he was dehydrated (well he did just get done throwing up) they still wanted to make sure that he wasn't blocked with anything (read that as "we would like you to spend more money, since we cant just tell you that your little dog just has an upset stomach") since we didnt really want to spend an extra 130.00 (that we didnt have) for an x ray that wasn't necessary, we decided to just have them give him some medicine for pain and put some saline under the skin for dehydration. We got home around midnight and he is doing alot better, he is on a special wet food that was like 1.50 a can and we are thinking about switching their dog food, to a new Iams for sensitive stomachs, since both of our dogs are known for tummy troubles.
