Saahib You Crazy Rock Loving Mutt!

Thank you to all of those who have been saying prayers for Saahib! Saahib is on his way to a full recovery! If you have not heard the story here it is...

Saahib loves rocks, and has had two previous surgeries to have them removed from his intestines when they got stuck and he could not pass them. Well last week he got a wild hair to eat two rocks! I recognized the signs of him being sick but was hoping that he would be able to last the weekend so I could avoid the emergency vet but no such luck! Arjun and I could tell he was in a lot of pain, and was not going to make it until Monday so to the emergency vet we went! We loaded up the car with the little kids, dog and many snacks and treats to get us through the next few hours.

Once we arrived at the vet we found out Saahib had swallowed two rocks and that they had burst through his intestinal wall, this allowed all of the bacteria, food and other nasty stuff to leak out into his stomach cavity.

He spent the next few days in doggy intensive, I was really not sure what the outcome was going to be. At one point they had to give him plasma and if he didn't perk up he was most likely not going to make it. Luckily Saahib's desire to live was very strong and he is now home eating really well and barking when the babies are napping! Definitely back to his old self!
