Meet Scout, a 2-year-old mixed breed pup who wasn’t feeling up to snuff. Poor Scout’s belly was upset—he was vomiting and acting very sluggish, which had his mom very concerned.
She rushed him to the vet after regular business hours, and the vet was concerned that poor Scout had a blockage in his stomach or intestines. If a dog has a gastrointestinal obstruction (aka a blockage), they may show the following signs:
• Abdominal tenderness or pain
• Biting or growling when picked up
• Constipation or straining while going poop
• Lack of appetite
• Sluggish and depressed
While Scout was at the vet, he had some x-rays done, and luckily they showed that Scout didn't show any signs of a having a blockage, so he was given some medicine to help ease his belly.
Scout’s mom says he’s been a positive support in their home since her husband passed away in 2015, and she couldn’t imagine anything happening to him. Since she is a single mother, she knew she couldn't pay the bill, and we were happy to help. Luckily Scout just had an upset belly and nothing more serious. He’s on the mend now, and giving his family lots of lovin’s.
