Christmas morning at our house was busy, then our new (lived with us for 3 months), rottie, Zipper, decided to regurgitate on the carpet. My dh cleaned it up since I have been known to projectile at least 2 days worth of food if I do it. She kinda acted a little sluggish all day. We called the vet and he told us to keep her npo (nothing by mouth) for the rest of the evening after giving him her s/s (signs and symptoms). At this point I should bring up I am an ER nurse. Shouldn't I also be able to read dogs minds too? I guess not.
Zipper died @ 2320 (11:20 pm) on Christmas night. Our extremely wonderful son came over the next morning and dug a grave for her. Thank you Lord for that boy.
The point of this blog post:
Some big dogs, like Zipper, have a predisposition to GVD . If you have a large dog, or even know someone who has one, please read this.
I can't even talk about it right now but feel compelled to warn others. Maybe I will be back on track next week, I don't know.
