I am away from my dog on a trip. He ingested 3 packs of gum

I am away from my dog on a trip. He ingested 3 packs of gum containing xylitol. Within 20 minutes or so if ingestion he had vomiting induced. They thought all the gum came out. For 48 hours noe he has been on an iv infusion of fluids to "flush" his system. They tell me his blog sugar is now stable but two liver enzymes are elevated still. One was 148 and the high normal is 48, it is now down to 99. The other was 137 and should be no more than ~ 50, it is down to 88. Unfortunately, my dog pooped a lump of gum about 10 hours ago. They are concerned about liver failure. How long does it take to figure out long term prognosis.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: He is 70 lbs 1 year old.

Just rescued a 1 yr old female Husky from the local shelter

Hi just rescued a 1 yr old female Husky from the local shelter this past Sunday. She was diagnosed with Parvo, took her to my vet and had her receive Sub Q fluids (with Dextrose and vitamins in it), penicillin injection, and Cerenia on Monday. She had a small bit of loose bowel with blood on Monday, but no vomiting, and has been drinking water on her own the entire time. Alert, tail wagging, walking on leash, urinating well, but not interesting in eating. This morning she had solid bowel movement. How long before she should be interested in eating again? Is a solid bowel movement a good sign even though she has not eaten since I've had her? How long before we know she's "out of the woods"? She entered the shelter on 6/7/17. Thanks.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the husky?Customer: We We've been making sure she has access to water/pedialyte at all times. I've fostered small puppies with parvo, but first time for an "older dog", so not sure what is "normal" when they are going through this.
