Teka Sickie!

Hey Pals:
Teka is spending the night at the 'mergency vets place. She has been slightly under the weather since Friday night, not eating, not wanting to play, not making my life totally miserable.
She has always been up for walkies, and she didn't stop drinkin' water, but this morning, she let us sleep until almost 7:00 am!
Of course, she and muzzer were up and down all night last night, Teka Barfed, Teka pooped and Teka barfed again. She went outside at 2:30 am and romped a bit. I pretty much slept through the whole thing, except that muzzer always turns the lights on to clean up a mess. And boy, were there messes.
Today Teka didn't eat brekkies. Even though muzzer made us some scrambled yeggs. But she seemed OK, and Teka and I went out and played in the yard a bit. Muzzer brought us inside after a bit and told us she was going to the grocery store.
Uh Oh...whilst muzzer was gone, Teka pooped again. Except this time it was all runny and bloody, and boy! it stunk. When muzzer came home, she noticed right away! And then she cleaned it up, and then she called the neighbor to find out where the emergency vet was located. And then muzzer and Miss Mary from across the street took Teka to the vet. And I had to stay home. Boy, I missed Teka. I missed muzzer too. They were gone for a long time.
It was waaay past dinnertime when muzzer got home. She did not bring Teka home with her. The vet took some blood from Teka and some other sample, and then he said it would be better for Teka to stay at the emergency place tonight. Then they could watch her, and she could have an IV, and some meds to keep her tummy calm. He said there is no blockage, no tenderness, no bloating, no fever, so he thinks she ate something she shouldn't have, (um, maybe a frog or a toad, ya think?) and now she has "hemorrhagic gastro-enteritis." Here is a URL http://www.sniksnak.com/doghealth/hge.html for a website that talks about it. Y'all should just be glad they don't have smellovision on the CRT yet.
Well, muzzer will keep you posted when she knows more. Until then, cross paws for the little nuisance, OK.

Hey Gussie,
Boy did we miss out on all the goings on. We're off line a few days and POW, all heck breasks loose. We were really sorry to hear about Teka. Aound here dad doesn't use the big words, he calls it garbage gut when we get sick from scoffing down deer turds and eatin "mushrooms" etc. Really too bad she had to get sick when the regular vet is closed. Those mergency guys are great but they usually have a lot of bad sounds "ca-ching, ca-ching, ca-ching. But ya gotta do what ya gotta do. All 11 of us are wishing best thought for Teka's speedy recovery to being a full time active Gussie pest again as soon as possible.
