Thanks DogsRule...the vet was impressed how fast she rebounded for how sick she was...took her on vacation last week and she was fine..she tired faster (if you can believe she can actually tire)...brought her to YIPS to get a new toy before going on vacation and she was so hyper in there and even helped herself to a treat...haha The vet put her on a gastro pet food, half can and half dry...now i am having a hard time getting her to eat the dry food..she likes the can stuff better ughhh...So far, everything looks great with her and back to her old self..she just finished the antibiotic...been watching what she eats and gets into as well...sure scared me when i brought her to the vet but she got excellent care!!

vet just figures she ingested something that was a toxin to her and got dehydrated from all that vomitting and not keeping water down

Yeah that canned stuff lol, it's nummy. It's not necessarily bad for them (well some brands), just make sure you brush her teeth everyday and she gets bones to chew on.

Try wetting down the dry food so its kinda mushy and gradually wean her off /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

And its so so sad when they start slowing down, her boyfriend is starting too. Mind you he IS 6 July 31 (CRY!).

Were you giving her yogurt while she was on the antibiotics (helps replace the good bacteria, the antibiotics kills it off).

*smiles* I remember her playing with the big guy lol, loosey goosey. *grin*
