Ann, thank you so much for sharing this information. Edan had to have his gallbladder removed when he was about 5 years old due to a mucocele. (You may remember my worry since I shared that 'delightful' experience with the forum.) For those not here at the time, it started with Edan vomiting for nearly 2 hours then not eating ANYTHING! My food hound not eating means something it wrong. It took two weeks to find the source of the problem because nothing was showing up on standard tests like bloodwork. When my vet sent me to the emergency clinic for an x-ray and ultrasound, they found a blockage from a stocking he ate in his stomach. When they did the surgery to remove the stocking, they found the a mucocele. The doctor who did the surgery said I was very lucky because within two weeks it would have infected his liver and we may not have been able to save him. VERY SCARY and something I cannot forget. He had some guardian spirit looking out for him. Caro, I'm so glad you took the initiative to have the dogs checked and found the problem with Tully before it reached the point Edan's did. I hope the medicines help her.
