lizzy goat

I came home from work on Monday to find that Lizzy ate a huge piece of her canvas bed cover–it was at least the size of a sheet of paper and is fairly heavy material. I got on the phone with the vet and they said to watch her for signs of distress (or take her to Pittsburgh to get scoped. sigh.). She threw up a couple of times that evening and early the next day but by later that day, she was eating (dog food) again without incident. And, stuff started to come out the other end, so that is good. I thought for sure we were going to end up with an intestinal blockage on our hands. I guess we’re not out of the woods yet since she’s still passing pieces of the cover, but at least things are moving in the right direction. No pun intended.
