    Our own administrator's (glock26USMC) police dog "Tyson" has fallen ill, and is now at the veterinarian hospital in critical condition. Please say a prayer for one of our own 4 legged heroes!

    Tyson did okay through the night, however he is still constantly vomiting. He is going to have a ultrasound, and hopefully that will shed some light as to what is going on.

    I'm heading there in a few to visit him, hopefully I know more when I'm there

    Doctor just called, ultrasound shows a lot of fluid, and looks like his intestines are inflamed, which makes them think there is a obstruction, surgery is needed to see, due to all the fluid, if there isn't an obstruction then they would have to investigate to see if something is wrong with his intestines.



    I have a feeling, his duty days are over

    Hopefully they'll figure it out and he'll be back to work soon. Prayers are coming.

    Tyson is home, he had a mass in His intestines blocking his stomach ...... He has a morphine patch on, for 5 days, and about 15 staples in his stomach. He is resting, but you can tell he is drugged up

    Any idea what caused the mass? Was it sent out for biopsy?

    I had a little Boston Terrier years ago who loved to chase Frisbees. Except once he got it he'd play 'keep away' and chew on it. He suddenly stopped eating and seemed quite ill. An x-ray showed something blocking his intestines. I okayed him to have surgery and the doctor showed me what he retrieved out of my dog's stomach. It was a piece of the rim of a Frisbee. :( My dog recovered quite nicely and returned to a normal life in short order. I suspect ole Tyson will work again. Tyson could very well have had "stuffing" in him. I don't give my dogs toys they can destroy. If I want them to chew something to smithereens, I give them rawhide, pig ears, etc. If you want to play with your dog with stuffed toys, take them away when you are done playing.

    I'm glad to hear he's on the mend. I pray for a full recovery for him.

    Does he get upset when you leave for work without him? I hope he's back at work after he heals up.
