OMG so sorry Linds I hope it's nothing serious and she has an easy recovery. Lots of vibes. Lots of love to you and your fam! Seeing your dad cry (or be near tears) is the worst.

This website: http://www.fionalake.com.au/other-in...ords/cow-words has a bunch of different words for cow in different languages.

I like a "kennel name" of sorts to make sure the dog won't be "Riding West VXII" or something like that.
Interesting translations! Would you mind if I stole your idea and did a "kennel name" with the rescue name after? I still don't know if it would be accepted, but I like "Rimrock's HErD Riding West" or something of the sort.

I keep thinking "RoundUp" would be a good "kennel name" for a herding dog. Except that's a weed killer as well, haha.

Lots of vibes. (((hugs))) I hope everything works out okay.

Luckily, nothing obvious has been found wrong with Cynder. She has some gas in her intestines, but it isn't patterened like an obstruction, and no other real abnormalities were noted. (Did discover that she has beautiful hips and was spayed with steel sutures. Lol) Nothing is wrong with her teeth/mouth and nothing obvious stuck in her throat.
She's been able to keep a small amount of canned food down this afternoon, which is great, although she is still just pouring out drool. We're just going to start her on cerenia and pepcid and hope the symptoms resolve after a day or two. I hope so...this dog needs to be fit and healthy or her daddy will never forgive himself.

Thought to be two (unconfirmed) cases of circovirus in Kzoo.

Honestly I don't know if we do but I do know that we can't afford to spend the money it would probably require to go to one. They just dropped 400 dollars at the vet between the xray and the bloodwork.

She's also an almost 11 year old large dog and I just can't see pouring thousands of dollars into it right now. I know it sounds callous, but between Kaylee's bone cancer and now this it's just not viable.

Hopefully though when we talk to the vet tonight things will be a little more conclusive and we can come up with a plan of action.

Fingers crossed it works itself out. I almost hate that "Well, we don't know" more than them knowing. Hopefully though it all resolves itself!

Me, too.

We offered her a little bit more of canned food...and she upchucked everything the exact same as it went down. So no oral meds for her, unfortunately. We gave her the injectable versions, but I haven't seen a difference yet. She's still drooly, and now if anything she is more depressed. This morning she was running around and playing, tonight she's hiding under my desk so Abrams can't get to her. She's still keeping water down, though, so I am thankful for that (do NOT want to worry about her getting dehydrated) and we're going to fast her tonight and tomorrow morning to see if that makes a difference.
If tomorrow morning she's still urpy/drooly/unable to keep food down when offered we'll have to do further diagnostics. We should also have the specialist's opinion of her radiographs back in the morning, so we'll see if they agree that nothing looked wrong.

*sigh* Last week was physically exhausting and drug on forever, this week just SUCKS.
