Mineral oil for dogs with intestinal blockage!
I'm not getting my hopes up too high, because my dog has been sick for days and I can't afford the surgery she needs. I tried mineral oil as a last resort and she continued being sick and pooping completely red dhiarrhea. I was sure she was needing to be put down today and spent the whole day bawling my eyes out. Decided to give her more mineral oil since I'd stopped it for a day worried she'd get constipation like I'd read a warning about, and i think she got a miracle because tonight she got up to go potty and out comes completely brown stool. Still dhiarrhea but I am amazed, and hoping and praying this means she may make it. Anyways, I want all dog owners to at least KNOW a about this. Of course, we have poured hours and hours of our days just sitting next to her, syringe-ing bone broth and pedialytes and water into her, and been strict with her meds she got for dhiarrhea, but the mineral oil may be what helped her insides. So if you have no way of paying for surgery (I was quoted $9000 because she's so sick recovery would be extensive and they said she may not make it) at least try mineral oil before giving up on your pup! In no way am I trying to replace vets advice, she may just be a miracle or she may still pass away/need to be put down, but our vet expected her to die almost a week ago. Even told us how to put her down at home, but never recommended the oil. I just hope that sharing this could possibly help save someone's furry family member. <3
