Milo is racking up the vet bills again.  He was not feeling well the other night and clearly very uncomfortable, so off to the vet we went.  3 1/2 hours later we left with two meds, xrays, somewhere around 80 ultrasound pics of his intestinal walls, kidney, adrenal glands, pancreas, and other internal bits and pieces and orders to come back in the morning for another xray.  He seemed to be back to his cranky self last night, and is doing ok today.  He has to fast until Friday.  Until then, we have to force feed him his meds, keep him hydrated with a 50% dilution of Pedialyte, and try to keep Quincy from harassing him.  Oh yes, they shaved his belly and half way up his sides to do the ultrasound, so he's got a sort of doggie mohawk going on.  Not cute.

Anybody know what flavor Pedialyte dogs prefer?  Cause it isn't unflavored by the reaction I got today.  This is going to get really messy.

My poor Milo! I hope he's feeling better today. Kitty's sending some purrs and headbutts his way. Unless he hates cats. . . if that's the case, I'm sending over some tummy rubs to my friend Milo.

Thanks so much! He's currently accepting all purrs, headbutts and tummy rubs. He's allowed to eat again, so he's both happier - ie less hungry and crabby - and more pissed off - because he can only eat a bit at a time and he wants MORE.
