tonight has been horrible. i came home and let my best friend riely the black lab out side. about 10 minutes later i walked out and i though he was sleeping. but then i relized that another dog he is freinds with and plays with was crying (wimpering). i try to nudge him up and relize he is completly unresponsive and breathing really hard. he has his eyes open but when i called his name and poked him he didnt even move his eyes. i then freaked out i picked him up and he was completly limp he had no muscle control at all. (he is a 68 pound black lab about 1.4 years old.) He urinated uncontrolably down my leg and contiunued to do so. I carried him down stairs and was fratically trying to find a Vets number. But it being 5 it took me abit to find it. Then he started to have seziures. After i figured out a vet i bundled him up and put him in the back of my Explorer (thank god for SUV's today.) as im stuck in *ucking houston downtown Rush hour i think my dog is close to death in the back. i finnaly relize that he has the abiloity to support his own head and has it up. I finaly get to the vet rush him in. Once inside they rush him in the back. Aparently once he got inside he had heavy bloody diareaa. They gave him a IV which also bleed heavily. The determinded that a anti coaculate posion must of been ingested somehow. (no rat posion anywhere he could of gotten) So they have me take him to the ICU vet open. They charge me 256 for there job. I once again get stuck in Rush hour traffic on the way there with a dog bleeding. But at this point he is able to half assed stand up and doesnt want to sit in the very back so he trys to jump over and rolles over the seat. (getting bllod everywhere). It then begins to rain white out rain and i have to pull over to put Riely back in the back. I finaly make it to the ICU vet the rush him in and have run blood tests determining they thing its a intestinal thing not rat posion. I signed a minimal and max treatment form the min is 1100 and the max is 2200. My baby is being given a plasma transfusion as i type and im worried so much. This puppy is my best friend. i love riley. i will know more in about 5 hours. Here is the kicker this vet only stays open until 7:30 tomorrow. And then i have to take riley again to the other VEt for day care.. which is seperate fees.... but me and my girl were able to see him right before the blood transfusion started. he is laying down but able to still keep his head up. he looks so sad and out of it. The vet was unable to tell me if he was still going to make it. here is a pic of him.
