I am sorry (yet again) for such a long absence! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that we have gone through quite a few changes recently (new house, new job being some of the big ones)!
Sunday night September 7, 2014 Boca refused food and was just laying around way more than normal. If you are a frequent reader here, you are familiar with Boca (who was featured by Huffington Post as they talked about my amazing Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats) and know that her refusing food is about as shocking as Mr. Teacher-Chef turning down food! I knew something was really wrong when her stomach was rock hard, she refused food, and then yelped jumping into the car. We rushed to the animal hospital where they saw something disturbing on her tummy x-ray. Exploratory Stomach Surgery and they found no blockage, but did find non-functional intestines. Fast-Forward a day or two and the Doctor thinks she strained to poop (sorry, I know this is a food blog and we shouldn’t be talking poop – but, ya know) and lost function of her hind quarters. A few days of Laser Therapy and Chiropractic and no improvement and we pulled her from the 1st Vet and brought her to a specialist (at the same office where Boca had her TPLO two years ago – we love Valley Central).
