Fudgie 2-1-96 8-14-05


Recommended Posts

I still don't know what happened.... I woke up and everything was just fine. Let all dogs out to potty.


Everyone came in and got on their beds because we were heading out to visit DH's mother in the hospital.


Came home 3 hours later and Fudge had vomited. I let him out and cleaned up his bed and the floor. I let him in and he started vomiting again.


I called the evet told them I was coming and put him in the back of the car and left to get him over there. He was vomiting in the car.


The evet is about 45 mins from my house, he vomited 3 times.


I get him in the vets office and he just let go with bloody diarehea and bloody vomit!! I don't know where that came from! There was no blood before.


He was gone within 1 hour.... major gastrointestinal hemoraging. He didn't get into anything!! I would know! The garbage is always put out in the shed, there was nothing! I don't know what happened. The vet did xrays and gave him pain meds to get him to relax... he was trembling and panting. He never stopped panting.


I'm just floored. We got up and everything was just fine.... I just don't know what happened.


I feel sick to my stomach. I don't even know why I'm typing this because I really don't want to talk about it........... he was a good boy. I've been so busy with MIL in the hospital... I hope to God I didn't miss some sign from him that he was sick and I blew it.

Dear Diane,

I am SO sorry. I live in Massachusetts and lost my greyhound, Pete at the end of June. Send me an email thru greytalk if you would like to talk to someone and I'd be glad to talk with you at this sad time. I'll include my telephone number in the return email.

I'm so sorry for your sudden loss. It seems like Fudgie has been around Greytalk for so long, it's like losing an old friend.

Run Free, Sweet Fudgie...

Oh, Diane! I am so, so sorry! What an awful thing! :bighug


PLEASE don't beat yourself up. I know how easy it is to do that, especially when the cause is unknown, but I seriously doubt it was anything you missed.


Renie had haemorrhagic gastro-enteritis last year in kennels - no-one else had it, not even my old guy Jim who was sharing with her, it was just one of those things. Luckily for her, she recovered well, but it can be such a sudden thing and devastating to the system - she was vomiting and pooping pure bloody mush, you couldn't tell which end it was coming from.


I am so sorry for your loss. Just so sorry. Hug your other fur-babies for me, they'll miss him. :cry1


My, you're having a tough time right now. But things will get better. :f_pink
