Dakota Morning Update

Sweet Dakota Puppy
Vet just called and gave us an update on Dakota.

She is alert, sitting up, and hasn't vomited since the surgery. Everything is going well.

He is going to keep her off food and water today to give the stomach time to heal from the inflammation as well as the surgery. If she still has not vomited by tomorrow, he will give her a small bit of water and some baby food in the morning (Monday). If it continues to go well, we can bring her home Monday evening.

From what he said, she is following the same post-surgery routine as a dog that ingested a foreign object. Right now the most important part is to let her stomach rest from all the trauma.

He also said that I can visit her in the morning so I will be there shortly after they open their doors. We all miss her terribly!

All the prayers are working - keep it up!

(next vet update scheduled for this afternoon/evening)

Sounds like good news!! I hope that whatever has had her stomach in an uproar is gone and the test results come back negative for cancer. I bet it is tearing you apart that she's not at home. Big hugs from me and slobbers for Dakota from Chester

I read your blog often and enjoy the educational as well as fun stories about your lovely labbies.
My three labs send big wags/woofs to your Dakota for a quick and strong recovery.
Our labs are just too wonderful to be sick!

Glad to hear the night went well. My furry kids and I are sending good thoughts.
