Must Love Pekes is a blog for those who love Pekingese, their looks, their antics, their personalities. It is written by me, Linda, and I have been rescuing Pekingese for 14 years. Lots of them have gone through our home. We have loved them all.

Seminole came into rescue with Hurricane, his brother. They have been together their entire life.
But, they had to be apart because Seminole/Semi was hospitalized for severe pancreatitis.
Pancreatitis is VERY serious. If you notice any symptoms, don't wait to take your pet in or organ damage can occur.
Semi was on IV's for 9 days-- he wouldn't eat, he was on pain meds. He was in serious condition.
His foster mom visited him almost every day and I went up there several times to visit with him.
His foster mom even brought his brother to visit, but Semi was pretty out of it.
The vet even went next door to Chick-Fil-A and asked for broiled chicken. My vet will do this for the serious patients there-- just to see if they will eat. I think that's incredible! (Love my vet!)
He was finally able to go home and he wandered around his yard and explored his foster home-- just to make sure nothing had changed, I'm sure. He cuddled up next to his brother to sleep and is doing so much better. He goes back to the vet this week for a recheck. I'm so glad he pulled through this. So many of you were behind him when you got updates on facebook. Thank you for all your prayers for him!
