Just got off the phone with Auburn. They took the feeding tube out of her nose. She would not tolerate it, and they were worried she would hurt herself.
They gave her a handful of food this morning and shebheld it down. She also held down another handful later this afternoon. Believe it or not, she had a regular bowl movement this morning also
We are so very relieved, but will talk in the morning.
Thanks for your support.

That is great news!
God made a dog......
Just spoke to Auburn this morning. She held a larger feeding down this morning. Fever is almost gone. They will call back in the late afternoon.
What wonderful news! Our old CBR has had a handful of pancreatitis episodes over the past years, but none any where near as bad as your poor girl. Sounds like she's on the mend. Fingers crossed!
I've been offline for a couple of weeks so just reading this now - so glad things are looking a little more positive.
A very good friend of mine had Australian shepherd that got into something from the garbage or table - it's been a while so I don't recall the offending tantalizing foodstuff. But he went into acute pacreatitis and it was touch and go. He recovered and lived a happy life but she had to get very very strict with his diet. Any variation (local neighborhood kid giving some table scrap) and he'd have a bad episode quickly. Good luck, so glad to hear more upbeat news.
Bad phone call this afternoon. She was doing better, but the fever would not go away. They took another sonagram and discovered fluid around the pancreas.
We went down to see her. She was drugged and confused. She perked up after about 10 minutes, but you could tell she feels bad.
They said to stay by the phone tonight in case surgery is needed.
I really need her to get better. My wife is scheduled to have Hernia surgery this Friday, and I need her to be in good spirits.
Please, please pray my little girl gets better. Both my girls are hurting.
