(no subject)

Last night was one of the worst nights of my life. I got home from work around 9pm and Violet had just been acting normal and begging for food while I ate my dinner. Around 10pm, she woke up from her nap and just started throwing up. She threw up like every 5 minutes and wouldn't stop. So I took her to the emergency vet and they thought she had Parvo...so I flipped out and started bawling my eyes out. When that test came back negative, they did x-rays and found that nothing was in her stomach, but they found that there was a lot of stool in her colon and an air bubble in her stomach....so they said that she had some gastrointestinal thing and gave her Famotidine (Pepcid...me a Pharmacy girl ;}) and Metoclopramide to help her nausea. But all in all and $330 later, my baby is okay. I had to work at 8am and I didn't get to bed until 3:30, but that's okay. She's healthy. Sorry this was so long, but I had to post Violet's bad experience....and has this happened to anyone else?
