Surgery Update: Spoke to our vet who did the surgery. He said everything went well but he was glad we did it when we did. Her bowel was starting to swell and her pancreas was very swollen and enflamed. They put in a stomach tube and drained off 450 ml of fluid and gas from her stomach which could have caused bloat if left untreated. This just scares me so much because I questioned if I was overreacting this morning. Dogs do get sick and get better on a bland diet. I think God I’m over reactive. It saved her life in this case.

So glad to hear there is a good ending. My Tiki, as a youngster, loved to eat iris rhizomes and iris leaves. Well, it made her liver very sick. For a long time, she went out in the yard with a basket muzzle on!

Oh my!! I'm glad you thought about getting her to the Vet Asap and didn't wait and see. Hope she is able to come home very soon.

Wow now that's intense. I'm so sorry that you are all going through this
It is scary. Well done for knowing your dog that well. It is a tough decision to make.
The hard part is that we cannot wrap them in cotton wool as much as we try.
We wish Tayla a super speedy recovery time and a very special Christmas - you deserve it!!

I'm glad to hear everything turned out so well and thank god you caught it in time.

I know how worry some this can be and how frustrating at the same time. My brothers setter is a rock eater and as careful as he is with him he's been in twice now to get rocks removed. The last time in the vet offered to put a zipper in. I don't mean to make light of this but a smile always helps.

Hoping for a speedy recovery and sending healing thoughts your way.


Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.
