I have learned that
1. a dog's digestive system is very vascular. Bella spent 21 hours at the Emergency Vet clinic with some sort of digestive issue. No blockage but passed a lot of blood. She is now on meds and is doing better.
2. That a backache by itself can signal a urinary tract infection.
3. It is easy to get dehydrated in the winter and hard to drink cold water (at least for me). Drink Water!!!
Bella is now on a chicken and rice diet. Snoopy approves. They are getting 4 - 5 small meals a day. My washing machine ran non stop for awhile but now is getting a repreve.
