Gracie got into a bag of trash I left on the kitchen floor Saturday morning, inhaling old chicken wings and really old chinese food I had cleaned out of the fridge. She got so bloated and lethargic that I took her to the vet.
While in the back room at the vet, Gracie threw up what was described as the vilest smelling vomit the vet's assistant had every smelled. There was an entire stalk of broccoli in the vomit (fun!).
Bloat can sometimes lead to a dog's stomach getting twisted and fairly immediate death, so the vet took these x-rays. Fortunately, Gracie's condition did not require surgery.
She's much better now, after some antibiotics, anti-nausea medicine, special intestinal diet food and the vilest vomit ever.
Leaving the garbage bag down on the floor was my $300 mistake of the weekend.
