Bonnie, my sort of new, very old cocker needs jingles. She's 15, I adopted her last spring.
She vomited yesterday afternoon, refused her dinner, had a coughing spell in the evening. This morning, she went outside with the other dogs, tail wagging, but refused her walk and breakfast. She's now hiding in my closet.
Vet at 11:00.

I had to leave her at the vet. We're worried about an obstruction...the lab went counter surfing last night and my tax papers were all over the house. When she vomited this morning, there was a piece of hard plastic in the vomit and I can't identify what it came from.
Xray looked good, but she's jaundiced. I left her for a barium xray study and more blood work. She's such a sweet old thing...I'm not ready to lose her yet!
Foundationmare, there's nothing better than adopting an oldie! They're the ones that always break my heart when I see them in the shelter listings.
Jingling for Bonnie! I remember when you adopted her - I feel the same way about the golden oldies. To me they're like Temple oranges. Temples are the most delicious orange in the universe, and they are only available for a short time for about a month up here. I indulge myself with up to 6 a day and it is my bliss.
With an oldster, you know you only have a small window of time, so you indulge in them, with them, cuz you know their season is short.
Laura, I hope you have lots more time with Bonnie. You've been through so much.
Jingles for Bonnie!! mucocele's are fairly common in geriatric cockers, all the one's I have known who havent been septic before surgery have recovered well and been home within a few days. Jingles that she will belong to this group!
