Libby is not feeling well

My 11 year old Libby is not feeling too great. We had her at the ER vet today, they checked her out, blood work was good, they did chest and abdominal x-rays. Vet wasn't too concerned, said everything looked pretty good, said though there were a couple of areas she wasn't too sure of, said if she is still off tomorrow to call my own vet, he may want an ultrasound. She is eating, but just is kind of lethargic. And she had some abdominal tenderness. Her gums were slightly pale, but vet wasn't concerned. I asked her about hemangio, she assured me she was in stable condition, she did say she looked like she was full of stool, told me to give her pumpkin for fiber and see if that would help her pass it. Of course I am freaking out, but will keep a close eye on her tonight, and will check with my vet tomorrow. Right now she is sleeping on the couch, had to help her a bit to get up. And I had to remind Tugg not to pester her.

Jake, our first but not our last. Gone far too soon.

I hope Libby gets a good night's rest and feels better in the morning. I know it's hard, but try to focus on the good bloodwork and clean xrays and get some rest. Let's hope the pumpkin works like magic.

Sending prayers for Libby and you. It's so hard when you are worried about the unknown. Keep us posted once she sees your vet.

Keeping sweet Libby in our thoughts and prayers that it's just an upset tummy and nothing else.

Praying that Libby is feeling better today. I know how worrisome it is!

Hope she's just feeling a bit constipated and nothing more. Hope she's feeling better soon.
