Just got a call from the vet. Joey SURVIVED surgery and is in recovery at the moment. During his surgery they found his spleen was double its See More


Everyone who knows Big Joey loves him. I can't tell you how much I love this doggy. He's literally saved me and my kids from an abusive ex and in turn he took the blunt of many blows to protect us. I've had him since the day he turned 6weeks old and come January 26 2017 he will be 10 years old. Joeys only been sick once so considering his ago he's been great! This morning Keith woke up for work and noticed Joey threw up and wasn't far from it laying on his bed. I noticed right away his swollen belly and from the past and animal issues I knew it wasn't good. Rushed him to vet and as I thought he has bloat. In his case his intestines did a 180 and he's filled with gas/air. He needs emergency surgery and even then they won't give guarantees but how can you just give up on him. Our animals are NOT just 'pets' , they are our family and one of the babies so we feel we need to exercise every option before just giving up since God knows if the shoe was on the other foot, Joey wouldn't think twice about doing whatever necessary to save us EVEN if they gave us horriable odds and no guarantees. It's very embarrassing to even have to post this but when ur options are limited I feel completely helpless . I know there's a lot of people way worse off then I am so makes having to post this even worse but every little bit helps right. Thanks!!
