Yucky Tummy

Well, mom made me go to see Dr. Don today because of my yucky tummy. I haven’t been feeling too good. When we got there we had to sit out in a waiting area so I could think about it and watch other dogs go to little rooms. Oh that was scary. I sat in mom’s lap and shook. Then they called my name. YIKES! Mom took me into a little room and put me up on a table. Then Dr. Don came in. He smells funny, like medicene and dogs and cats. He wrapped this rubbery thing around my little leg. I didn’t like that tight thing and tried to pull it off but mom made me leave it alone.  Then Dr. Don stuck me with a sharp sticker thing. And mom let him! Some of my blood came out and went into a little glass looking thing and Dr. D took it away. Whew! I lay down on that table facing mom so I could see her good and make sure she wasn’t going away. Finally Dr. Don came back and said I have Gastroenteritis, whatever that is. All I know is that it made me have a yucky tummy. I have to have a bland diet of white starchy stuff for awhile, mom said a week. Since I “got rid” of my breakfast this morning, mom fixed a potato for me when we got back and let me have some of it. It was yummy and I ate it all up. Mom said I can have some rice for dinner. I guess that will be alright, we’ll see.

Ethan went with us to Dr. Don’s place. He stood and looked at the fish in the tank the whole time we were waiting, while I was sitting on mom’s lap shaking. Mom said that fish tank  was better than a TV! I know he left me along while he stared at those fishes.

  1. Oh Rusty, what a horrible thing to go through. Doesn’t Cody Bear have gastroenteritis? You might want to wag on over there and ask Cody Bear what he gets to eat.

    Glad it’s not anything serious, though. You’ll be a new dog in no time.

  2. Bless you Rusty! Aren’t Vets the most horrible place? But he is there to help you-just remember that! Mom did it out of love! Potatoes and rice aren’t that bad-really. I can’t believe Ethan left you alone-just to look at those cool fish.

    Big rubs and scratches from me!

  3. Aww I’m sorry Rusty. It’s no fun to have a tummy ache. Tuffy always shakes at the vet too. Maybe the bland diet will make you feel better. I’m glad Ethan was so involved watching the fish since you felt poorly. 😉

  4. Hi, Rusty!
    That gastroenteritis thing does not sound fun! I hope you feel better soon!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  5. Rusty , we wish you a quick recovery.
    Kisses from Obi and Niki.

  6. Rusty, get well soon. I hope that bland diet settles your tummy.

  9. rusty,
    cody bear totally understands what its like to have an upset stomach. when he feels bad….he likes to run really really fast and that takes the queasiness away.
    hope you’re feeling well soon!

  10. Rusty!
    I’m so sorry to hear about your belly ache! My humans mom and dad feed my uncle ground beef and rice when he isn’t feeling good. It usually clears up his belly aches right away!

    I hope you feel better soon!
