Just caught up with this!
So so glad Ted is on the mend - and he must be so comforted to be with his family. It'll no doubt speed up his recovery

I hate reading posts about sick doodles (or any animal for that matter) and I AM SO GLAD to hear that Ted is on the mend. Huge wags, hugs, and healing vibes heading your way from me and the padster.

OMG !!! I've only just seen this thread - read it very quickly so I could get to the end. What a relief he is okay, you must have been so worried.

Please give Ted a big hug from me and Poppy` xxx

Ted's doing really well Glenda. :D

Every day he's improving a little bit more, he's still very quiet but that could also be the effects of the tramadol.

I took him for a check up Thursday and the vets were pleased with his progress and we've got to go back Monday. I've only got to feed him every three hourly today and have got to slowly start adding his normal food now.

The vet seems to think that this could be related to when he swallowed the needle, he did use some medical term for it but I think it's to do with where he was trying to bring up the needle he has done something to his stomach. He's going to try and link it all together so hopefully it can all go on one insurance claim, I've so far paid out over £2700 :shock:

So glad teds improving and you can breathe a dough of relief.
Your vets sounds like a good un and trying to save you some money which is always helpful

A Friend of mine had a weinmaraner who had bloat and it twisted. He had to have his stomach stitched securely to prevent further problems but he never had it again and lived a lively and energetic long long life

The girls send gentle licks to ted

Really pleased to hear that Ted continues to improve! And that you've got an understanding vet - they sound to be worth their weight... :)
When he's feeling 100% you need to have a chat with him about perhaps getting his doggy coats Pret a Porter... dressmaking is definitely not his forte.
Poor lad! I was 'away with the fairies' on Tramadol so that may indeed be why he's quiet, but that's probably a good thing whilst he convalesces. Fingers (and paws) firmly crossed that he bounces back very soon -

Glad to hear poor little ted is doing well, long may it continue. He will be fed up of the vets, I think he has definitely had his share of visits for a while. Give him a cuddle from us
Cheers,

Chris, Michelle & Stout

Ted had another good peaceful night, I only have to feed him four hourly today and he's now having a little of his own food mixed in with no ill effects!

He almost looks like Ted again, just a slightly quieter version! (am tempted to try the tramadol on my naughty son...only kidding!)

I am really missing my walks with him, some days I don't feel like a walk but you drag yourself anyway for the sake of the dog but it's really strange just going from car to building! I'm finding myself standing in the garden with Ted trying to get some fresh air!

Back to the vets tommorow and will hopefully be able to stop the tramadol and be allowed a quiet stroll soon.

So glad he's doing well - sounds as though you and your vets have worked a minor miracle between you :D

So glad he's pulled through ok. I didn't realise he'd swallowed a needle, what a nightmare!

So glad Ted is making such a good recovery. It won't be long now before you can start taking those fantastic walks again. I don't know about you, but just being out there in the fresh air and countryside really lifts the spirits, no matter what the weather is like. All the very best at the vets today.
