Well I just spent a little over 2hrs at the emergency vet. I got home around 1:30 or so.
My furry boy had been acting weird since I got back from the music store around 11am. He was fine before we left. I also noticed he had not peed since
the night before and he always pees overnight on his pads. I keep pee pee pads in the spare bathroom because his allergy meds make him urinate more. I
noticed he had also vomited a few times and was literally all over me and under my feet. He only gets like that when he doesn't feel good. So I
monitored him throughout the day and he never ate or drank a thing. I started to watch his behavior like he was trying to pee and it was hurting him.
He would go in a corner and arch his back and shake. I tried to get him to drink water but he wouldn't so I rubbed ice on his lips and just comforted
him. Well then he started moaning and crying which he never does. It was then I knew in my gut he needed help.
It took me over 30mins to find an emergency vet! They were 25 mins away but I didn't care. I woke my son up at 10:30pm and packed them both up and
went to the vet.
They did x rays and other tests turns out he has a bad UTI with blood in his urine.
no idea how that happened but they did say urinary issues are
common in Pekingese which is what he is half of. They sent me home with meds for him and told me to follow up with my vet who they will send the
information to. I know our vet will call too. I saw one of the girls from our vets office there so it was nice to see a familiar face esp for Rosco.
They relieved his bladder and gave him fluids and took x rays. He seems ok right now, just resting.
It was so scary how fast he went downhill. I mean he couldn't tell me but my gut instincts told me he was not right. I'm always right with my
instincts and my husband just thinks Rosco is playing me for attention but I know better. He's my boy and I know when something isn't right, I don't
know what I would do if something happened to him. He's my furry boy and my sons best friend, I'm glad we got it figured out. They did say that if it
continues and the meds don't help they'll test his kidney function. I just hope they work and it's nothing very serious. I would do anything for that
Here he is now. He's like a sick kid who wants his mommy, I don't mind at all. Today my son was bugging him and I told him no he doesn't feel good so
we hug Rosco and it was so sweet what he did next. He took his blanket and put his arm around him and just snuggled him and chilled. It was so sweet.
It's like he knew too!
