Layla woke me up at around 1 am hacking and coughing, pacing around the house trying to eat whatever rubbish she could find on the floor. She was drooling excessively and wouldn't settle down. Her stomach seemed a bit firmer than usual and we couldn't figure out if she nabbed something off the table or ate too much chewbone or what, so off to the emergency vet we went. A couple hundred bucks and a few hours later, the vet couldn't tell if there was anything in her stomach except lots of dog kibble. We opted to watch her ourselves instead of going for a barium study. She came home and slept off the anasthesia, and woke up this morning seeming much better. She also managed to poop, drink and eat without any problems, so things seem to be moving normally. Moral of the story? I'll gripe about it, but lost sleep and money is worth peace of mind.
