My dear friends were out of state for a few days and left their six year old Westie, Zoey, at a Petsmart Hotel. Two days ago they got a call that Zoey wasn't feeling well. My friends asked that she be seen by a vet and authorized them to do whatever needed to be done. Yesterday they were told that their dog was doing better. Tonight, Zoey is in an emergency hospital. This six year old little dog had a blockage due to a kidney stone. She is not yet stable enough for surgery, and is in pretty bad shape. Sue and Bill drove all day to be at her side, and are very distraught. This little dog means the world to them. I'd appreciate it if you would PLEASE keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.

Oh dear, we will definitely keep them in our prayers. That is so scary.

Zoey somehow made it through the night and is now in surgery. They are playing the odds thinking it would be better to hold off surgery until she's stronger, but that holds its own set of risks. Please keep praying for this little dog and special family.

Zoey is out of surgery and will remain in ICU for several days, and then a couple more days in regular care at the hospital -- Sue and Bill are rung out, but thrilled at the prospect of bringing Zoey home over the weekend. Thank you for your prayers for them.

Thanks so much. As of tonight, Zoey is in ICU, still a very sick little girl, but the outlook is far more promising than just twenty-four hours ago. I think Bill and Sue might actually get a little rest tonight.

Thank you all for your prayer for these very special people and their dog, Zoey. The vet is concerned -- they can't get Zoey to eat anything. I suggested some warm chicken baby food without onions. Anything else anyone can suggest to try?

Maybe some scrambled eggs.
And hand feeding of food by Bill & Sue, to get Zoey to eat something.

I think the plan is to try a poached egg in the morning. Zoey would not touch the home cooked chicken and rice tonight. The catheter is still in place and draining blood, and she's being kept on IV fluids.

I am also just seeing this, Cindy. :roll

I will pray for this little dog to recover from this horrible situation. I can't imagine what your friends, Sue and Bill must be going through. :hp

I agree with Marianne about the eggs. :th-up I hope she'll eat at least a little. :sad

Sending my prayers for Zoey, how upsetting to have that happen while away. Hopefully by now she is home with Mom and Dad and recuperating.

Thank you all again. We've seen your prayers work time and again. We are still guardedly optimistic; Zoey was able to keep a little egg down today, and by tonight they removed the catheter. Hopefully, her little system will respond and start working on it's own. There is talk of MAYBE letting her come home as early as some time tomorrow if she keeps progressing. I know it will be quite some time before Bill and Sue will leave her side. They are "our kind" of dog people.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Little Zoey is doing great. The Vet hospital staff can't get over her recovery to date. They are listing her among their miracle success stories. Even if they don't know the source of the miracle, I do! :th-up
