Our family dog has been seriously ill for the past two months.
At first, I thought maybe the dog was just being more anxious than usual. And I wondered about how I would explain my own flatulence now that the dog barely farted anymore.
Every day, the babysitter and I would come up with two to five logical explanations for the dog’s growing disinterest in smelly socks, dirty tennis balls – and then with more alarming frequency, food …. then water.
And it’s become a full blown emergency now – still with no explanation. Even the vet uses a lot of fancy words – like ‘idiopathic’ – and runs a lot of tests – all of which essentially means he doesn’t know what’s wrong. I’m worried when doctors don’t know. For now, it’s wait and watch. And I hate waiting.
