Lance Feels Better

We took Lance to the vet last night, they took an x-ray to see if he had an obstruction. The x-ray didn't show anything, so that is good.

They took blood and ran tests, showed liver elevated and dehydration.

So they gave him and IV of liquids. Now I have never seen a dog get an IV and I thought it would be like humans, but it's not.

They just poke the needle under his skin and pumped in fluids. He ended up with a camel hump on his back, which fell down his side after a half hour.

I took a picture after we got home, but it had gone down quite a bit, the arrow points to where his hump is.

He is doing great this morning and even did the breakfast dance. He hasn't been excited to eat in a couple weeks.

I'm so glad he's feeling better! That's so weird about the fluids, though...! I've never seen that either...
