Right now she is on Beef and Gravy Stage 2 baby food and a couple of gulps of water broken up over time to not over-work her stomach. She came home with an e-collar (what we like to call a drunken lampshade *laugh*) because she still has a catheter in her left leg in case of a problem. You see, the vet sent Dakota home without trying her on baby food yet so he wanted to make sure there was a line should she get sick from the food.
Well, I am happy to report that she ate 2 small jars of baby food last night and two this morning – without a problem! 🙂 Of course, we took the e-collar off of her while she was home but kept a strict eye on her to make sure she didn’t try to pull her line. Once we headed to bed, both Lab Brats were crated and the e-collar was placed back on since there was no way we could guarantee that Dakota would be a good girl and leave her leg alone.
Right now she is enjoying a rainy day laying in front of the living room heating vent while Cheyenne is sleeping at my feet – using my foot as her pillow. *laugh* They are both very content as I work from my laptop on my living room couch (to keep an eye on Dakota) – both are home.
What’s next? Well, later today Dakota goes back to the vet to have the catheter removed and get another shot of antibiotics and such. It will be a week until we get back the pathology reports – however, we humans and dogs alike at the Lab Brats house remain certain that all tests will come back negative.
Thank you all so much for all your prayers and well wishes. I will most definitely continue to keep everyone up to date on her progress and the test results.
