This brings back a nightmare for me. In July, we dropped a seemly healthy, 4 year old, Lola off for boarding at our usual, trusted dog-sitter. Upon our return 10 days later, Lola appeared subdued and had lost a significant amount of weight. The sitter said she had been fine during her stay. We immediately took her to the vet.e vet Bloodwork was alarming as was abdominal ultrasound. Vet wanted to keep Lola overnight on fluids and observation. She lasted 2 hours. Thrombosis. I don’t blame the sitter or the vet at all. Sometimes, bad stuff just happens.
Upon adopting my new girl, Jenny, I insisted on a complete K9-type check up as police and military dogs undergo. I will also insist on yearly, complete bloodwork to catch any incipient disease or disorder.
I believe I did a disservice to Lola by assuming she was healthy because of her appearance and youth.
I pray your pup will be fine.
