Good news for Archie!

27 April 2016

Archie, an adorable 4 year old Tibetan Terrier came to see Will, one of Willows general practice vets, as he was feeling quite under the weather.

He had been in perfect health up to that morning when he became very ill, started to vomit and developed diarrhoea. Archie’s owners were fairly confident that he hadn’t eaten one of his toys but couldn’t guarantee he hadn’t ingested something when their backs were turned. Considering how ill Archie seemed Will thought an abdominal ultrasound would shed some light onto whether an obstruction was present, which would mean he would need emergency surgery. Luckily for Archie the ultrasound quickly ruled out an obstruction and so he was kept in for fluids and supportive care. A blood sample was also taken which confirmed his liver and kidney function appeared normal.

After a stay in the hospital with supportive treatment and lots of care from the nursing and animal care team at Willows, Archie was able to go home and has subsequently made a full recovery. There are many reasons why your dog or cat may vomit but it is wise to have them checked out by a vet.

 

Here are some lovely photos of Archie at home, now fully recovered.
