Pixel's amazing recovery.....
Emergency vet treatment required....and then there was EMMETT !
My dog, Pixel, had been at the emergency vet for nearly 48hrs as the result of an obstruction in her stomach that involved surgery. She had not eaten in nearly 60 hours.
I came into the vet with bbq chicken and her favourite treat in the hope that she would eat and I could take her home.
She was not interested in the food at all. She would pick it up and drop it. I tried different ways for ten minutes in the rom and I managed to get her to eat half a pea size piece of cabanossi and she looked really uncomfortable swallowing.
The nurse came back and I said her throat seemed sore and that she didn't like swallowing. The nurse didn't seem to think there was a reason she should be.
When the nurse left the room I did the neck release, the jaw/tongue and the double release. I figured at this point I had nothing to lose.
She is a dog that is usually quite reactive to treatment but I got very little response from her until the third move on the jaw/tongue. She just paused still for what seemed like an eternity.
Three minutes later she was eating without a problem at all and in perfect timing for the vet to walk in and see she was eating and actively seeking food. She wasn't allowed home if she wasn't eating.
I started EMMETT 4 Dogs to be able to treat my dogs mostly for dog sports, but I never realised just how much I would use it in so many scenarios.
