Default Bandit

Had to take Bandit to the emergency vet hospital tonight.

When I woke up this morning, he jumped up on the bed and started vomiting. Took the pups out for their morning walk, and while he did his business, he also barfed. Gave him his treat for going potty outside, and he barfed. Gave him his breakfast a couple of hours later, and he barfed. After a few hours, the wife made him a bland diet of chicken and rice, and, he barfed.

Called the hospital, got an 8:00 appointment, and took him there. The doc took an x-ray and found some metallic objects inside. So, Bandit is there overnight.

Hope he's going to be able to pass whatever those objects are, and that he won't require surgery.

From the x-rays, it looked like it might be a staple or a twist tie. Something like that.

Thanks, T-Mike. He is a good looking pup. Only a year old.

Good luck. I had a cat that ate everything on the floor, PICA?
One night he was choking, and he had a ribbon from presents hanging out is throat. Slowly pulled it out..
Bandit will be fine, at least he is being cared for at a Vet now.

Prayers for Bandit.

We are always misplacing those little wire twist ties in the kitchen and know if they hit the floor they are dog treats.

They usually poop this stuff out. My chocolate lab ate a dishrag as a puppy. And we figured surgery was going to be necessary, but she pooped out the entire thing.

I called the hospital at 3 am. The girl said. "he went pee, we take him out every few hours and he doesn't like being in the cage." However, she also mentioned he was staring at her with those beautiful blue eyes. They are taking good care of him. But I'm a nervous wreck and so is his sister Harley-Belle.

Thanks for the prayers and kind words.
