This time, he's going to stay at the hospital and will hopefully have nowhere near as strong of a reaction.
Needless to say, this is pretty nerve wracking! We'll have to wait and see... I'll post updates as I receive them.
Good Luck Skelly!
I called ahead to the vet's office to make sure that Dr. Chick was available. They said that he was seeing patients until 10am, at which time he was going into surgery. There was no time to be wasted!
I stretched a bed sheet across my back seat and then went in the house to put a harness on the already overly thrilled Skeletor. I lead him out to the car through the garage. As soon as he hopped in the back seat, he began coughing. By the time I walked around and got into the driver's seat, his coughing became very productive as he lost his breakfast (and medicine) all over the seat. :(
Poor guy was just too excited (as usual). I sprung into action, pulled him out of the car, clipped him to the tree, bundled the sheet around the puke and placed it in the garage. I grabbed a roll of paper towels and some upholstery cleaner and quickly cleaned the remaining juice off the seat.
I grabbed Skelly and he jumped back into the car. "No more puking please?"
I'm happy to report that he didn't do any more coughing on the way to the vet. He even took my advice and lied down for about half the way.
