This is my baby Savannah. I rescued her. Since then she has had my back. Always comforting me, making me smile. She has been the eyes to her brother, Tyson, who is blind. She is the most outspoken when it comes to outside "threats". She plays hide and seek with her brother and if she does not want him to know where she is (because he is blind), she stands still and does not make noise. She wins you over with her beautiful face and character.
On First Consult it was bladder stones, which are still there, but had the unfortunate news that she may have Pancreatitis and they can't do anything for her right now until this confirmed and they can treat the Pancreatitis, then do the bladder stones.
This honestly feels like I am in the midst of losing a child.
Your support is really needed and will be appreciated and payed forward.
Apologies for only updating now again. Savannah showed improvement on the 26/06/2020 by maintaining body temp, keeping food down, managing her meds well and small wags of the tail.
When I got there you could see she wanted to come home. I was happy to see that she actually wanted to climb on my lap. The vet said we should try her at home as family and home environment could help with recovery.
So that is what we did! She came home. Shame she was still really not well as she wanted none of the other animals around her. She had a lot of meds to take, which was a mission, but she is a champ.
She has Pancreatitis. Her diet has changed to chicken and rice. Lucky pup. Tyson her brother also gets some spoils now.
Those bladder stones are making her want to wee all the time but then only a little drop comes out, and it is blood. I am so worried as they can't operate until she is healthy and the vet gives her the thumbs up for the operation.
On discharge I had to settle the account-which has had severe consequences financially for me. Your continued support will assist so much.
The vet is of the strong opinion that Savannah has Pancreatitis. They started the treatment and there have been small improvements in her health.
I went to visit her the day before yesterday and took her brother with for some feel good vibes. Needless to say Tyson was freaked out because he thought it was his turn for the vet so was very nervous. But then we saw Savannah and there were hellos and I hope that added to the small recoveries.
Yesterday she looked a bit stronger. She is being fed through a tube and has drips in. She looked uncomfortable with all the things on her. Great news was that i think the vet said it was her protein levels have come down from being over 150 down to about 44.
We need to get her healthy and stable. The bladder stones still need to be removed, however we can't do that yet as she is not strong enough for the operation.
So they are convinced that she has Pancreatitis or Adrenal failure or something like that. They say the treatment for both is similar. They can't operate on the stones yet unless she is out of the woods. She tried so hard to be excited for me but her body was just managing. I am gravely concerned. I just want her to be healthy and come home.
Savannah is not doing well. Just lying there. She is on a drip and they have those blankets on her that blow warm air over her to keep her warm and body temp up. She is not eating so they will most likely give some anaesthesia to insert tube for feeding. My heart is shattered for not even being able to be there to give her the love and comfort.
They are waiting for the blood tests, it seems they believe it is Pancreatitis. The doc has told me a couple of times that some doggies don't survive this. I wait now in anticipation for my next telephone call.
