Our Little Punkie
Our Dachise, Punkie, is in the hospital with pancreatitis. He was a very sick little puppy today and we took him in and he is now getting IVs and antibiotics. The vet will probably keep him over the weekend to watch him, and this is a good thing since we are having company this weekend and they are bringing their two dogs and little Punkie doesn't need the stress of new friends this weekend.
When Mom left the message she said that the pancreatitis must run in the family, since Dad has landed himself in the hospital in the past as well. We figured out that the pancreatitis was the cause of his last two week long hospital stays. Thankfully he seems fine for now (he is still on one steroid, so we don't know for sure.)
