I don't think your vet would allow Bailey to go overnight if she didn't think it ok. I think blockages can be serious when they aren't caught right away and the dog is already in a weakened condition. But if it is something that he ate and it has caused an intestinal blockage...from what I've read anyway...sometimes they will continue to watch to see if the whatever the object is will move on it's own. If not, then they will most likely need to schedule surgery. So I don't think immediate surgery is always indicated.Thanks everyone. I am petrified and can't even function properly, I am freaking out that much. Bailey is MY LOVE, I can't imagine anything happening to him...the thought of losing him is unbearable.
From what I understand, a blockage in the stomach is very serious, right? My vet said she will confirm the results of the tests with me at 6, after the last x-ray. If there is in fact a blockage, will surgery tomorrow morning be too late? Do I need to go to an ER?
Try to stay calm. I know I wouldn't be able to, but try. But I really think it sounds like you have an EXCELLENT vet.
