Jacqueline Lyle 8-9-19: Over the past week and a half I have been asking for prayers for my little man Saltine because he had been vomiting and had diarrhea. He had improved for a few days but today he began vomiting again and I finally got him in to see his vet. Saltine is not doing well at all and they re currently doing labwork and xrays. They have started him on iv fluids and are planning on keeping him atleast overnight. They are trying to figure out what’s going on with him. They say he is a very sick little dog. Could everyone please please say prayers for him. Than you! (Cont. below)

What in the world happened? I went offline for a few hours to celebrate our 40th anniversary and came back to see this horrible post. I had just updated Chihuahua groups this morning praising God for how great he was doing. Please let me know what’s happening. 💗🙏 Caren

Thanks! What’s going on? What happened that he suddenly needed fluids so desperately?

When I came home from work this morning Saltine had been vomiting again and was a little lethargic. As soon as the vet opened I called and told them I had been trying to get Saltine in for over a week now and he really needed to be seen so they told me to bring him in and he could be a drop off appointment. By the time we got there Saltine had already vomited numerous times on me and had vomited six more times on the vet while I was filling out paperwork. They think he was going into shock from losing fluids so quickly so they started IVs

Omgosh! What do they think is going on?
How scary

The new labwork came back and showed he has a severe case of pancreatitis. His xrays showed alot of gas buildup and they gave him some medicine to help with that and are going to get better ones later to see what is going on from that viewpoint. They still have him on IV fluids, cerenia and famotidine for the nausea and vomiting and are keeping him. They dont want me to see him because they are afraid it will stress him out when I come and then leave without him. I am so scared I am going to lose him. I just keep praying.

Oh sweetie I know this is difficult. If you got him in a time I have seen this reversed many times. Pancreatitis is curable; you will probably need to feed him a different diet. I’m so glad he is at the vet that’s where he needs to be! Have they never tested him for this before? It seems to me it would have been a no-brainer considering the “IBS”. You might want to check back to see if blood work from earlier on indicated anything. At this point what matters most is that he is getting treated properly now. This is definitely not something to mess with on your own. They should have taken him sooner.

This was new. I tried to get him into the vet 4 different times last week and they just kept giving me medicine to treat him with at home. I kinda insisted that he was seen today and they were shocked to see how sick he was. I just pray that something can be done to reverse this. Thank you for everything I truly appreciate you!

I’m going to post him today 💗🙏
