Tonka is back from the vet
« on: February 06, 2007, 06:16:32 pm »
I needed to do it for my own peace of mind, because Tonka was starting to act lethargic and had just thrown up for the 6th time.
She checked him out, he is not dehydrated, just seems to have a really upset stomach.  She gave him two shots to settle his stomach, 3 prescriptions and some bland food to feed him for the next couple of days.  She said to feed him tomorrow if he hasn't vomited again, if he does he will need to come back.

But already he seems to be feeling better.
I am kind of a big deal!

Tonka, I am sorry you are not feeling well right now  :(.

You need to be a good boy and get all better so your Mom can deal with other issues right now!!

I hope the meds and food the vet gave you take care of Tonkas problems ASAP!!

Have a good night

I know when Tub went last week as soon as he got his shot he seemed to feel better.I was using the canned food from the Vet to make little meatballs to stuff the pills in,now the meds are gone and he still looks around for his meatballs.I hope Tonka is back to himself in no time.

I'm glad that the meds are helping to settle his tummy and that it was only an upset stomach.  I hope Tonka feels better really soon.

You know, I think Tonka needs his Aunt Misty to come over and help make him feel better.  I can't help but wonder if he's not well cause he misses me and Aeryk?  ;)  Tell that dude to feel better fast.
Misty slave to:
Gracie Belle, 2 year English Mastiff
Rosco, 1 yr Toy German Shettweiler (designer mutt of course)and toy cause he's not Rotti or GSD size AT ALL.  Though they said he was a mix of the two..  Tonka, 3 year Great Dane
And last and most certainly NOT least, Linus 5 year old cat.

Now for the update on my other kid:
Tonka seems to be doing better.  I woke up this morning and found he had thrown up sometime during the night, though.  I gave him his meds and just gave him a few meatballs of the chix/rice food, so far so good.  Hopefully he will keep this down.
I am kind of a big deal!
