I get very uneasy over long holiday weekends. Also add into the mix that my regular Vet was out of town until tomorrow. Megan gave us one of those scares. Saturday morning, a little off her feed, but not too much. Saturday evening did not want dinner or even pieces of my hamburger! Still no other symptoms. Being on high alert by then, I followed her out into the yard. At first I though it was diarrhea, but then saw it was more blood than diarrhea. I had my usual reaction when one of my beagles are not well - stomach drops to my toes, vision narrows, heart almost stops, etc. Thank the lord for emergency clinics. Off we go at 9 pm. They can see us right away. The problem was hemorragic gastroentritis. She was one sick puppy. They kept her 24 hours and while she is still not totally back to herself, I know she is on her way. What upsets me now is we do not know what caused it - Austin and Shasta are fine. We also have no idea how to prevent it in the future. We are so glad to have her back home, that I hardly let her out of my sight. This may just be another something I will have to add to my list of keep an eye out for. So, the next two days are pamper Megan days!!
