So, Miss Lili had to take an “emergency” trip to the vet yesterday. *IF YOU HAVE BARKBOX AND A CORGI, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY READ THIS. You can skip to the last paragraph to save some time* She had been unable to keep anything in (either end… ew) and it had been going on for about 18 hours. Given her medical history, (she ate a bottle of ibuprofen when she was little) I always err on the side of caution and get her checked out whenever anything happens. Her regular vet was full for the afternoon, so I ended up taking her to the vet my parent’s dogs go to.
We got to Petcare Hospital & Wellness center in Mill Creek, and it was super clean, the staff was very friendly, and they were able to get Lili in within 45 minutes of my call, even though it was almost closing time! When the Veterinarian, Dr. Kristi Batterman, came to see her, she was so friendly and was great dealing with Lili, who at this point had gotten extremely shy (which is SUPER weird for her) and nearly refused to come out from between my legs under the bench I was sitting on. I think we may have found Lili a new Vet!
Turns out, that the big long tendon treat from this month’s Barkbox may have been too much for Lili’s little belly to handle. She ate the whole thing in one go, so I’d highly recommend to any other corgi (or small dog) owners to divide the treat into several smaller segments before giving it to your dog! Lili was treated for slight pancreatitis and an upset tummy, which meant and anti nausea injection, anti-diarrheal medicine for 5 days, and a bland diet for a week. Thanks for those of you who wished us support on Facebook!
I know a lot of you get Bark Boxes! Please read if you do!
Glad she’s okay, passing the information along
