she vomited once at about 3 am…i stroked her sweet face, kissed her head and told her i was sorry her tummy was upset. and then i stepped over her and went back to bed.
she was unconscious when i got up at 7 am. i called emerg and erin to come help me get her into the van. by the time i got the stretcher, she was gone.
i was so afraid i missed something, an obstruction from eating another can..a torsion if her stomach had flipped. i asked the ER doc to xray so i would know.
there was nothing, no foreign objects, no twists, no tumors, no masses…nothing..everything was normal.
the vet said i didn’t miss anything, occasionally dogs vomit just before a heart attack. there was no way i could have known. but i did know she wasn’t feeling well at 3 am, i just didn’t think it was a big deal.
don’t know if we could have saved her…so very, very sorry allie…you didn’t get that chance.
