My Trip to the Emergency Room


Please join me in bidding farewell to my good friend, TaiChi.
Alert readers will recall that she took first place in the Bad Sport Group at Mango Minster this year after her amazing entry showing 18 years of unsportsdoglike behavior.
She took great care of her two sissies, Fiona and Abby and will be most missed.










Last Thursday Momma and Master went out who knows where and when they came home around 10 PM, the Mango was not feeling well!

I was pacing and panting and drinking lots of water. Like totally more than a gallon. Slurp, slurp, slurp.

Then when I lay down something hurt me and I cried and cried and cried and got up and paced some more. All over the house, into every corner, pace, pace, drink, drink, cry, cry, oh help me!

My tummy felt awful and when momma pushed on it it hurt! Ouch!


I was worried that I might be getting the bloat and instructed Momma to take me to the emergency room at once!


Thank goodness we have the Tufts Veterinary School just a 30 minute drive from our house and they are open 24x7. When we got there, the doctor person came out and was most distressed by my distress and took me into the back room immediately.

Now Momma did have her camera, but she had to wait out in the lobby. Fortunately, I was able to hack into the security camera network behind the scenes and nab some photos for you of my big adventure in the emergency clinic.

The first thing they did was to photocopy my insides to make sure I did not have the bloat (which I didn't). Here is the actual result.

See? Nothing unusual (although they did notice that I had a most distended and gassy tummy).





Then the vet told me that I had an elevated heart rate.






So I had to have an ultrasound. Maybe I was a bit delirious because the ultrasound kind of freaked me out and I could swear that was no veterinary resident operating the controls.





Finally they said that I was dehydrated and hooked my up to a big old tank of water to lubricate my insides.








After a couple of hours that made me feel much better and I even fell asleep a bit.

Around 1:30 AM I was given permission to go home.








Any of you doggies ever get the IV fluids? Holy crap did I have to pee! As soon as we got outside I pee'd totally forever. Like so long that I kind of fell asleep a little on my feet and then when I woke up I was still pee'ing and started walking around and pee'ing and just couldn't stop.

I was worried that Momma would have to call FEMA to get a flood control team in.






On the way home in the car I was feeling much more relaxed and able to expel some of the noxious gasses which had located themselves in my large and moderately distended belly.

Poor Momma! Her eyes started watering from the fumes.


When we got home I pee'd hugely again, and then again an hour later and then again three hours later! But I was feeling a bit better and finally fell asleep.

Check out the cool wrist band they gave me. Stylin!



That was a few days ago and I am happy to report that I have made a full recovery.


Mango Man! Oh yeah!

PSA from Mango Momma
Bloat is a serious, life threatening illness. Read about it here. If you think your dog has bloat, go to the emergency room immediately.
Humorous moment of the night; when I was giving Mango's history I was asked if he drank a lot, pee'd a lot, passed gas, and acted lethargic. To which I replied, "Duh, just since he was six months old, he's a mastiff for goodness sake."

First, Mango, we are so glad that you are okay! Greyhounds can get bloat, too, and we know it's a scary, scary thing. I have never had an IV, but Hawk has had them before and I remember him saying something about "pissing like a Siberian race horse."

We did have lots of giggles over your pictures, though! Did the vet ever find out what was wrong?

mayziegal said...

Oh, Mango, my heart felt really sick when I first started reading this postie. I was SO skeered it was the bloat. And I am SO very much MOST HAPPY that it wasn't and that you are feeling betters. I also thinks you might start a fashion trend with your really way cool wrist band.

Totally Relieved Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

Martine said...

Mango,

We are glad you did not have the bloat. That is a very scary problem. WE are sorry you were feeling so horrible, but it sounds like the nice vet people at Tufts were able to fix you up.

Our dear old Sherman had surgery once and he came home with pouches of fluids on his sides... he looked so funny and he peed and peed forever too!

So glad you are feeling better.

Stella said...

I'm happy you are feeling better, Mango? Was it that license plate in your tummy that was bothering you? BOL!

Kisses,
Stella

Noah the Airedale said...

Mango, you gave us all a heart attack you know. Gas is an awful thing but bloat is much worse and we're so glad you didnt have that. Your Mama can put up with a little bit of Mango gas hehe.
So glad you're feeling better because otherwise the gases might have reached Australia and that wouldnt be a good thing.

Stay well buddy.

JD and Max said...

Hi Mango, we're so glad you're feeling better, that must have been very scary for you & your momma. Was it something you ate that gave you noxious tummy gasses? Schnauzer snuggles - JD & Max

The news of TaiChi is very sad.

We're glad you are okay.

Heather and Ellie said...

Wow, what a scary adventure!! So glad you are ok, Mango.
I visited the Tufts' Small Animal Hospital with my last pup, Barrett, when his cough was really bad. I was struck how nice all the vets-in-training were. Quite knowledgeable too.
Sounds like you were in good hands!

Marjie said...

We lost our first mastiff to bloat, which they called "a torsion". My friend Gaylen's bloodhound had bloat a while back, and she was fortunate enough to get him to the vet for surgery in time to save his life. I am so glad Mango was "only" dehydrated!

Aniemother said...

We are most relieved to hear you were just relentlessly gassy and thirsty. BOL! And we love your Mom's comment about your history.

Hope you won't have to go back to the emergency room. Efur.

Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

so glad to hear your ok!!! Give some kisses to your mommy for the presumably outrageous bill that comes with these things!

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Thanks for the note - and the post about TaiChi. Mom is very sad; even though she knew TaiChi wouldn't live for ever, she's still sad. Abby and I have been doing our very best to velcro ourselves to her side, and that seems to be helping. I am so glad that you are okay!!! (Why must we all do the sickie thing late at night? Hmmm.) Take care of yourself, and try not to worry your Momma too much; Momma's are very delicate! Thanks again for your note and kind wishes - even in dying TaiChi displayed the stubbornness that helped make her the Bad Sport that we all knew and loved!

ScrapsofMe said...

You been scarfing up bean burritos again? A little beano helps with that, you know. Seriously though, I'm glad you didn't have the bloat, that is very skeeree and
RH doggies get it more than short stubbies.

We need to lay around and get the peewee to wait on us paw n paw. Bring me a Cosmo, will yah PeeWee? How bout a footsie rub? Cabana boy PeeWee, I need a refill. Roll in that keg for the RH, will you?

Can yer Momma have him trained up real quick like? She's good with that stuff. I'll be packin my bag and booking a ticket.

See yah soon!

Stella, Gunther and Betty said...

Mango, we're so glad you're okay. We know exactly what you and your mom went through. At the beginning of the year Stella had the same symptoms. Minus all the drinking. Mom rushed her to the vet at 4 a.m. After taking picture of her gut, they said it was just a bunch of gas and constipation. $350 bucks later, Stella took a giant crap outside the ER vets office and all was well. Mom was worried about the bloat, but the doc told her it really only occurred in big breeds such as your self.

Take care of yourself Mango man!

We loves ya!

Holy Intestinal Upset Mango Man!!!

Alphini's Puppy Raiser said...

So glad you're OK, Mr Mango! That was one scary adventure...you do know how to get attention don't you?!

Randi said...

Holy BeJeebers Mango!

So glad you are OK!

My mom/secretary has a friend that is a student at Tufts Vet School! She was Dublin's favorite vetty tech here in San Diego & now she's in vetty school..

Did you see someone very tall with long blond hair & her name was Kacie?

So happy you are OK!

Love & Licks,

brooke said...

holy camoly Manogo! What a scary night!
SO glad it wasnt the bloat!!! terrifying thing!
So was it just a bad case of gas?!
Glad youre feeling better!

Jake of Florida said...

One scary post, pal. Did we ever find out what was wrong? We're so glad it wasn't bloat 'cause we've read about how awful that is.

Whew. Glad you're OK now.

Pee as much as you want!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Lorenza said...

Mango!
OMD! that was scary, right?
I am so happy to know you are now doing well!
I hope you are drinking lots of water, and peeing a expelling all the gases you want!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Mango - I already heard your story from my human who was emailing your Momma - so I know you were alright in the end but it was still scary reading all about it again!! You were a very brave boy. I am glad "all's well that ends well" - althogh it is a shame that they couldn't find out exactly what the problem was.

Hee! Hee! That was a funny comment at the end from your Momma - my human always feels the same too when they ask those "stupid" questions - like once she did a quiz about "dog depression" and according to that quiz - the number of hours I sleep in a day - it means I'm seriously, clinically depressed!!!! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Kari in WeHo said...

glad to hear you are AOK Mango Man :)

Oh Mango! You never fail to make us laugh. Careful what you are eating. At least cut it up..BOL
We are happee to hear you are on the sofa to recovery

Nubbin' Tails said...

Goodness! What an ordeal! I'm so glad to hear all you needed was some extra water! I have been known to make my mom and dad's eyes water as well. The advantages of being a big dog! :-)

Wags!

Busby and Raymond said...

Mango! We are SO glad that you are okay. (and that you didn't flood the neighborhood with pee, or blow your Mom outta the car with your noxious gas.) So did you find out what was wrong? We are happy that you have such an excellent Vet near by your house. You are one of our favorite doggies. (we thought you were a bull moose at first but now we realize you are a bull mastiff) xoxo, your friends in Cali.

Becky said...

I know that was scary for your Momma. Glad to know you are feeling much better! Bloat is some very nasty business for dogs and dog owners should be aware of the symptoms, thanks for posting about it.

Lola said...

Oh, that was scary and terrible, except it's great that you're all recovered. I'm so glad you're all right now, but whatever it was, I hope it never happens again. Take care of yourself.

wags, Lola

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Mango
Mom's eyes are watering from your story. She knows it was a scary event but you got her clucking like a chicken. I'm just glad that evil puppy Oliver wasn't found in your belly.

Oh.. I noticed rte 30 was shut down in grafton due to flooded streets. That was u?

Gus said...

Mango, we are most glad that you are feeling better, and did not have the bloat! That is terrible, and large dogs are more susceptible than small ones. Maybe their tummies are larger.

Anyway, tell Mango Mama to keep a cloth soaked in vinegar in the Mango mobile so she can use it as a gas mask - it works pretty well, but the car tends to smell like an italian salad dressing.

the booker man said...

holy cow, mr. mango!
what on earth did you nom on that gave you such ridiculous amounts of the gas? i'm really glad you didn't have bloat, and i'm also glad that your emergency vet peoples got you back on your feet and peein' like a champ!
*woof*

MJ's doghouse said...

Kasha said...

Mango is the second large breed I have heard get bloat this month! Geesh! I guess it is serious. I will be careful with Africa and I am so glad Mango is ok! Can I ask how much a trip like that costs in case that ever happened to us?

How scary that was!!

Poor Momma - I just know she was worried to death. Mine was always worried about bloat with her rottie.

Thank dog everything is okay. Whew!

Sam said...

Thank goodness it wasn't the bloat. We are extra careful with our walking/eating schedules to avoid it as much as possible. Glad you're okay, big guy!

Mr Koda MD said...

Glad to hear you mended ok! Don't blame you for being scared of the heights of those tables! ARGH!

Oh Mango Man, we are so thankful you are ok. Be sure to give Momma lots of kisses today. It's very hard on the humans mentals when they are worried about their fur kids. Get some rest buddy.

The Thundering Herd said...

Woo - so glad you are ok (and how kind of you to share the relief of gas pressure with your mom).

Uh, yes, Miss Natasha has had the IV fluids (overheated one day years ago). And she peed enough to solve drought problems that year.

BRUTUS said...

Scary stuff! So they never figured out why your insides got all out of kilter, huh? Things like that make my mommy crazy. She always wants to know "WHY???". It sounds as you were most brave & stoic though it all. OK, gotta go - just thinking about all the peeing is making me hafta pee!!

So happy Mango is feeling better! Wow, how scary and what a long night. I can only imagine Mango Gas Attack! My little guys can clear a room in seconds, so I can only imagine a Mango emission.....Hope everyone is getting some rest! xoxo

Woof! Woof! Mango. Glad you are feeling better. That's truly a scary stuff. Thanks for the bloat info. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Peppy Sheppys said...

Mango,

We are so relieved to hear that you did not have the dreaded Bloat which must be a terrifying and awful monster because our ape is most afraid of it. She is as afraid of Bloat as she is of Housework! So glad that you have a most excellent doggie ER near you that could take good care of you. Next time, though, you might ask for beer in your IV as I bet that would make you relax even better.

Sheps w/Pep & Otis Potus.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Wow...those were some pix...you actually have a license plate in you stomach? I'm surprised that fire hydrant you ate once on one of our romantic walks didn't show up.

Sorry if I pressed too hard on your belly during that ultrasound....I was trying to see if you were going to have puppies. Thought we might get some footage of I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS PREGNANT...cool show.

Oh...maybe the next time I come over to cook dinner for ya I won't make those BAKED BEANS. Yes,yes, I was trying to create a romantic mood similar to the campfire scene in Blazing Saddles...

I didn't know your flatus would move upward to between your ears...most times that area is filled with brain tissue..but in your case...Lacie drifts off....

Kisses dear...

Remind Momma to NOT walk downwind of ya...oh dear, I just split my infinitive...will hafta go get a pedicure for sure...

Thank goodness you're OK, Mango! How scary! We're so glad your mom took you in right away - she's right - bloat is nothing to mess with!
Great job hacking into the security camera network! Thanks for showing us how everything went!

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh Mango...how absolutely frightening!!!! I'm so glad you are all better!!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

dewdana said...

What a relief that you are still ok! That security camera was quite revealing. WHen did you start Squeeing like pee-wee? I thought the mango was too manly for that!I guess anyone would squee in the clutches of the beast though!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We are SO glad that you're okay, Mango!
Mom just about killed herself laughing reading your post! You are too funny! haha

Love ya lots

Samantha said...

Whew! We are so relieved (cough) that you are okay, although that secret security photo was quite revealing... NO WONDER the picture on my bloggie was so disturbing! Yes I HAVE had Hydration IVs before - early, before I even got to my furever peeps, I had a few, since I was riddled with kidney disease and furever thirsty. Then last year, after the G-L-O-V-E incident, I had some more IV of water after the surgery as I hadn't eaten or drank for 5 days. We are relieved that it wasn't bloat for you - thank goodness! Stay well for Heaven's Sake, Mango!

Hey Buddy, that sounds like a scary experience. We're glad it wasn't serious and that you're feeling better. Monty went thru that IV fluid, pee for hours routine a couple times.

We are sure glad that you are ok Mango.. It probably was pretty frightening for Mom too.. You need to give her a few licks for getting you to the Vet so quickly..

I'm glad you didn't have the bloat (it pains you so), nice freakout on the humans though.

Twinkietinydog said...

Oh, Mango! You scared me so much! Of course you also got me laughing quite a bit too. You know I love the way you explain things. So glad you're alright and don't do that again, e-ver! I thought bloat was a threat to big doggies mostly, but I'll check out the link you provided. Thank you.
I tend to "crash" frequently and mom knows the drill so she takes me straight for IV fluids now. It sucks, but unlike you, I'm not the healthiest dog to begin with.
So glad you're well. I bet your mommy was really scared.

Oh Mango! That is so scary! Mom is always sure to watch that with me since I am a large breed dog too, and it seems to hit us "big" pups easier. I'm so glad it wasn't bloat!

Sometimes I get gassy too. How nice of you to wait till you were in the car to let it go!

I'm glad you are doing better!

Life With Dogs said...

Scary stuff - and the minute I heard the symptoms I thought bloat myself. I met a Great Dane in Ohio this weekend who had just recovered from a pretty good case of it. It's always in the back of my mind.

Whew Mango!

OMG!!!! Mango, I am sooooo relieved you are all well. I have heard of this bloat thing and mom is always worries when I roll around after a snackie or eat. VERY Scary! your Mango Angel was with you and I am so glad you are feeling better. Cool wristband!

Thanks for letting us know about Tai Chai :(

Tucker said...

Oh Mango - I'm so glad your belly is ok! How scary. My Momma is always worried about Bloat, she listens to my belly a lot and always rubs my chest after eating so that I let out a good burp. She keeps Toot pills in her purse and at home for me too. I've taken then a couple times for her sake, I didn't need them.

And yes I had lots of hydration fluids with my neuter. I peed forever.

Many apologies for being late in reading and commenting dearest Mango.

And I am so sorry you have been sick. And gassy.

I hope you are well on the way to your recovery now, and yes, once I did the longest Pee ever. My J thought I was going for the record, we had been on a long,long car journey, and once I started when we got out, I thought it was going to be a Forever Pee ;0D

We liked the last bit of this post, very funny.

I have had a dire rear, so am only just getting out and about once more.

lotsoflove, Marvin xxxxxxxxx

thank goodness you were ok because that was really funny!

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

Mango, furiend, this is most distressing news. But we are furry glad that you are okay now. Trips to the emergency V-E-T aren't very fun, especially when the hoomans are all spazzy like our Mom is. We are sending you lots of Chihuahua kisses today.

HoundDogMom said...

Mango, just catching up on some blogs and seen you have been a little sick. Sorry to hear that but I also know a lot about bloat. That is not something to mess with and your Mom is right, get to the vet immediately if you suspect it especially in us big dogs. Oh, our Mom says that gassy stuff is really bad. See I have a gas problem, don't like to admit it since I am a girl, though. Anyway glad you are back to your oldself again.
