    :( Baby vomited last night, and had a bout of diarrhea. She didn't do that today, but would not eat or drink at all. Activity level very poor, somewhat lethargic. When she did have a bowel movement to day, she really had to strain. Now, I am paranoid when it comes to my dogs and my kids, so I took her to the vet. He diagnosed her with gastroenteritis, gave her an injection of decadron, a steroid, and atropine to help stop the cramping and loose stool. When he palpated her abdomen, he said she felt fluid filled, instead of like sausages like it should. He sent her home with l omotil, and an antibiotic. No food until tomorrow, then hamburger and rice for 5 days. She is just not herself at all. Send us good vibes please. I am worried about my girl. Lola is sitting next to her, just patting her on the head, while she sucks her thumb. Very forlorn.
