As some of you have heard I had to take one of our dogs-Walker to the vet after a weekend of multiple “upset” stomach episodes…he quit eating Saturday night, and looked to have lost over 6 pounds….I took him to the vet Monday morning and had to leave him to get x-rays, be rehydrated, and antibiotic shots. When I called 2 different times yesterday I was told at that point nothing had shown up on the x-rays but he hadn’t improved. They asked to keep him over night. This morning I called to check on him only to find out nothing had changed and that they had discovered a blockage in his intestines. Now that he was hydrated the blockage showed up by them being able to feel as-as yesterday his ribs were showing. We were already looking at a couple hundred dollars but with the surgery that he had to have in order to prevent death we are now looking at a possible $600-$800 more in bills bringing our total to $800-$1000. My husband and I had a hard time with this decision as that type of money we have never had to spend on 1 pet. But Walker is our 15 year old’s pet. Walker was born out of a litter of 7 puppies my other son’s dog had back on 9/11/07. You couldn’t ask for a nicer dog and he and Ethan have quite a bond. SO….I am offering 15% OFF any order placed from today June 9, 2009 to June 30th through Country Keepsakes Online. Please use the walker code to receive your percentage off.
