Some Good News to Share

Thumbnail image for image001[4].jpgOakley has pulled through the worst of this stomach-turning nightmare, his as well as ours.
Those of us who are attached to this pup thank everyone for their effusive, really wonderful and thoughtful notes that have come to us in large waves.
I have been cautious about posting updates because as we saw progress, we were warned by the vet that he was far from being out of the woods.
But his IV is now out — and his heart rate and blood pressure have finally stabilized. I will post some other pics of him soon.
The pic above is Oakley with one of his several uncles.
Oakley the Amazing Weimaraner looks even better now.
Thanks in particular to those of you who knew a lot about the details of why dog’s stomachs turn — and what the consequences of this are.
More soon.
— Steve Clemons

    Steve,
    Good to hear Oakley is feeling better.
    My husband and daughter are vets and torsions are among the scariest problems they deal with.
    Glad you quickly got him into the right hands.

    Wonderful! I’m so glad to hear Oakley and the gang are pulling through! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed. And at tonight’s Garden Party in New York, I’ll definitely raise a toast for Oakley!

    Very good news. Lost one dog to this a long time ago, and another in the family recovered after surgery. Glad you drew the right straw.

    Steve,
    I’m glad you realized that something was wrong and we able to save Oakley.
    My poor pup wasn’t so lucky. I thought he was still sad about the passing of my husband. A medication he was on was the culprit and the damage was done.
    My husband came to take him on to heaven back in March. Sniff.
    Hug your pets!

    I am so glad that Oakley is doing better. Thanks for posting the update. There are times when I miss my past dog friends terribly, so I know how important a dog friend can be.
    Best to you, Oakley and your husband,
    Ian
