Tomato soup

They said that his temp came down quickly and that was a good sign. They kept him overnight and MAN it was quiet in my house that night!

I picked him up the next day and he walked out to the car and got in under his own power. I was incredibly grateful that he was feeling better and only winced slightly as I paid the bill – I’d worry about that later.

I didn’t work that day – in fact I picked him up about 7:30 am and was napping by 9 am. He slept pretty much all morning and I fed him about half of a normal meal around lunch time (as was recommended by the vet). He was still breathing hard nearly all the time, but he didn’t look strange and wobbly any more and I was so glad.

About 2 pm I took him outside and watched as he pee’d….blood. Yes, great, I could see it clearly, the pee coming out of my dog was red. My heart started pounding again and I called my regular vet – the fantastic Dr. Leilani Hotaling. No, seriously, she rocks. I had already called them earlier but now I called to ask if they had time for us. I got an appointment for 4:30 pm, but I pretty much headed right down – this was too scary to do alone.

Dr. Leilani’s assessment of Bodhi’s urine was that it looked like tomato soup. Ouch.
