This Labor Day weekend is not what I envisioned for 3 glorious days of sunshine and lovely, comfortable temps. Nope. This Labor Day weekend has been full of stress, worry and anxiety. I brought it upon myself though. But, I also have to forgive myself because accidents do happen…
Pongo, our little Hoover, decided that he’s starving and needed to slurp up a nectarine pit that slipped out of my hand and fell on the floor before “LEA…” (leave it!) could be sputtered from my mouth. (This, unfortunately, is not the actual pit but one that I brought to the vet so they could see what we are working with.)
So, we spent Saturday and Sunday at Diamond Animal Hospital taking x-rays and attempting to get him to expel the pit.
They induced vomiting at least 3 times over the two days (poor guy-he’s not a good puker). We fed him beef broth soaked cotton balls and white bread hoping they would help push it out. He’s had three meals of oatmeal, coconut oil, and a little food.
He’s bored out of his mind…
…and feeling well enough to roll in something stinky.
He’s pooping regularly–just not that damn pit!
We were told it’s just the right size so who knows, “It might pass and it might not.”
Now, we’re just waiting, waiting, waiting and praying that the pit decides to rear its ugly head sooner rather than later.
