Prayer and Good Wishes Request for Bailey


Dear Blogville friends, we are asking all of you for your prayers and best thoughts. Bailey has had some challenges the past few weeks. While he's always been a finicky summer eater, not eating at all is not his way. At his vet's suggestion we've changed food and tried a variety of things, but his weight had dropped dramatically. This past week we took him in over several days for a variety of tests. At first we the were afraid a tumor was the only answer based on the things discussed. However, as tests have continued, we have hope that it might have a more treatable option as the tests have shown no cancer or tumors to this point.

The tough part is with the Labor Day holiday we will have no answers until Wednesday as they took lots of samples to test during an endoscopy on Thursday. We are feeling more hopeful as he has started eating since we started treating for IBS and he is eating rice and beef. Both vets we consulted decided regardless of diagnosis getting him to eat was a priority and if it is IBS getting him on the treatment and diet can only help. He even has gained back a little weight.

Katy has been really stressed out as Bailey has often been gone for a day at a time for his tests. While normally a healthy Sheltie barker, when Bailey has been gone she's stopped barking at all and is highly stressed until he's back home safe.

  5. I'm sending prayers and good thoughts to you and Bailey. I'm glad he's starting to eat a little more and hopefully you'll get to the bottom of what's going on with him. I know it's tough when you're worried and have to wait for answers. Hang in there. :)

  20. Oh poor Bailey and sweet Katy. I am praying it is just IBS because that is HIGHLY treatable. I know it has to be tortuous to wait til Wednesday, but ..."no news is good news"....if God forbid it is something awful, you would hear that right away.
    Sending love and prayers
