Vet visit...Belly is sick...

Hey, everyone, Belly's Dad, here. Belly is at the Vet. On Friday, she started eating more slowly, and was acting too tired, and just didn't seem herself. Saturday she perked up a little, but was still eating really slow. She tried to be herself, but something was still wrong. Sunday, after a pug party, she was very lethargic and didn't want to eat, at all, and started drooling a lot. There's been no vomiting and no soft stools.

So, Monday, she went to the Vet. As of this posting time, she's still there. Vet says no tooth issues (our first thought) and no mouth issues. Still doing blood work and x-rays for any blockages.

Vet is thinking Pancreatitis.

So, please give her your good thoughts, and I'll keep this updated.

*UPDATE* Blood work is negative, so far. Vet, under better examination, thinks there may be a sore under her tongue. She's really anti-touch-my-mouth-even-when-I'm-healthy, so she's going to be given a light sedative so they can look at her mouth more closely (personal note: shouldn't this have been done, initially?)

*UPDATE* Belly is home! The Vet found swelling under her tongue, probably from a wound, which caused a bacterial infection under it. She should start feeling better in a few days. There is a picture, but I'll put it in a new blog post.
