    Kirby is going to the vet today

    My sweet bichon Kirby seems to be having another bout of pancreatitis. He hasn't been able to keep food down since Sunday. Really worried about him. Per vet instructions, he's on a low fat diet and the only treats he gets are carrots. And to his dismay, he gets no table scraps of any kind.

    So it's off to the dogtor for him. The last time he had this, we almost lost him. He spent 3 days in the clinic fighting to get well.

    Could use a couple of prayers for my handsome little Kirby Dude.

    Thanks!

    Prayers are going up for Kirby.. and you too. It's so stressful when a furbaby is sick. Hope Kirby gets better.

    They put him on fluids, ran bloodwork and gave him antibiotic and antivomiting meds. As of 2:00 pm today, the vet said he's eaten a little soft food and kept it in, but that he's still panting a lot and doesn't look as perky as he should. So it's an overnight stay and we'll review what's happening tomorrow morning.

    I know I have 5 dogs, but just having my Kirby gone makes the house seem so empty. He's my best buddy.
