Long story and won't go through it, but dog got neutered at one year. Undescended testicle. Surgery was done and dog went home. Dog started to vomit and continued...Also did not pee...
was brought back to Vet next day and vet said, don't worry and go home. won't get into that either. Dog died next day.
Bottom line....If your dog is vomitting more than 2 or three times in one day - and I consider that excessive - and is not eating and particularly NOT urinating...get him to the ER quickly! Not urinating is a SERIOUS problem. Not urinating is a dangerous problme that needs IMMEDIATE ATTENTION!!!! Get him to the ER - even if your Vet just told you otherwise...
|Great advice. Terribly sad story.|
|Do you know what was wrong? What caused those symptoms?|
What a sad, and terrible thing.
|This is terrible. I cannot believe a vet would send a dog home that wasn't urinating after surgery. Awful.|

| Very sad story.|
I know an oes, that the vet wanted to keep over night after surgery;
he had been neutered. The owner didn't want to leave her dog - thank Lord!
So they brought him back home. In the middle of the night he started to bleed a lot
and they brought him back to another vet and he had to have surgery again.
He would have died if he had been left alone at the first vet.
I am so happy the owner brought him home and he is a lovely healthy oes to day.
|Terribly sad, especially the fact they knew something was wrong and went back to the vets and told not to worry. |
Was it something to do with the Neutering of the undecended testies and something going wrong there?
Or is it something they will never know like the vet making a major boo boo in the more intricate neutering of this poor baby?
|There is a long story that goes along with this. The vet is now being sued. However, since dogs are considered"property" they can only get what they paid for the dog originally.|
My reason for the story was to just let everyone know, no pee is a BIG serious problem. Vomitting more than a few times in a day, especially after surgery, is another BIG serious problem. I thought most people know this. But apparently, not...If you are not happy with what your Vet says, go to the emergency...
