Back to the vet

This morning Rocco threw up three times after his breakfast. Kevin called the vet, but unfortunately our chemo vet is not in on Thursdays. However, they told us to come on in because although some vomiting is common with the chemo, it can get worse very quickly. I took him in at 2:30 and they gave him something to settle his stomach as well as some subcutaneous fluids. 

The worst part is that Rocco can't get his regular dinner tonight. We have to give him just a 1/4 cup at 7 and see how he does. But he's been so hungry, and he is underweight. He's not going to like this one bit. The vet also told me to give him some Pepcid to keep his stomach settled. We just have to keep an eye on him and hope he doesn't do anymore vomiting. Worst case scenario, we'll have to take him to the emergency vet tonight. But he seems fine otherwise, so we're hoping it was an isolated incident. We'll just check back in with the vet tomorrow.
