Speaking of dogs, I had to take my Bella to the vet on Monday AM.  Everything started on Sunday when I heard her yelp....I was in the other room so assumed she caught a toenail or pulled a muscle chasing Lady.  However, she did not eat her supper and had a hard time jumping up on the sofa.  It is not like her to turn down food.  On Monday morning she would not eat any breakfast so about 9AM I loaded her in the car and off we went to the Vet.  $215.00 and 3 hours later, she was diagnosed with  pancreatitis.  She was 2 shots after being x-rayed and having her blood tested.  I was instructed to bring her back the next morning for a follow up.  Which I did.  At that visit she was given a 2nd shot, plus a prescription for antibiotics for 7 days, intravenous fluids, and a special canned food that she could have a little bit every  2 hours until the food was gone.  She is to have small meals several times a day for at least a week.  The 2nd visit was only $59.00.  At this rate I am going to have to get a part time job to pay her medical bills.  The vet said this could be a one time thing or it could happen again.   Trying to post a photo....Bella is the one that looks like a yellow Lab.
