Hi this is Ros speaking!   Jet had to be taken this morning to the Lort Smith Animal Hospital in Melbourne as he had been acting quite lethargic since yesterday. They ran all kinds of tests and found him to be dehydrated and with a temperature. They took x-rays and performed an ultrasound and they diagnosed that he had eaten something he shouldn't of and it had become stuck within his intestines. After all the testing they admitted him to the ICU ward for I'V fluids. An hour later they decided to move him straight into surgery.  They were worried it also might be gastric torsion. We're now nervously awaiting a phone call telling us how he did. Thankfully they said his heart rate and breathing were fine.  Jet  would really appreciate all the power of the paw his blog friends can give him during this very scary time.
Thank you            
Update!!!  Just had the call.  The surgeon  found a disc wedged in his small intestine.  Possibly the lid of a pepper shaker they think.  What a relief.  A few days in hospital and on the road to recovery.


  1. Poor Jet. (And you) We hope that the lid is the reason and he can he'll be home very soon.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

    We'll keep our paws crossed.

  2. Glad to hear he came out OK. But we are still sending the POTP his way.

  3. Good news that the surgery was a success - but we'll keep our paws crossed for a speedy recovery!
