OMG girls (and boys
God, that's awful, what did the vet say he has? Is he any better now?
hes still asleep beside me seems a little better, i saw a quick wag of his tail earlier
but boy does he smell bad
she never said what it was even when i asked her not to stick the thermometer up his bum cos he was in so much pain, he just stuck his nose into my elbow and cried his heart out
Poor thing! It's awful when pets are sick.
i felt like such a bad pet owner cos i knew he was in pain but i couldnt do anything, ill be one of those mothers who freaks out when their kids are sick
The poor think Lil star...I hope is well again soon. Thanks for letting us know that there's a bug going around. My little pooch is very prone to stomach upsets. God I just can't take it when she's ill, you must be exhausted. Get well wishes to your pooch!
How is he now? Hope he's better, god its awful when they get sick.
My dog got sick during the week twice as well, not to the extent your wee lad did though, hope you are ok and the dog is on the mend
you poor thing i know exactly how you feel. It could be a bug or it could be colitis. My dog suffers from that. I need give him special food and I have a supply of tablets from the vet (anti inflammatory)for when he gets it. He vomits everything, then vomits bile and then get diarrhoea and then blood. That was only when he got sick first, now I know the signs and get a tablet into his quick. Then the vomitting stops and it never gets as far as the blood.
Make sure you monitor the amount of water your dog is drinking. If they stop drinking get the vet straight away. They will need a drip. They can go downhill very fast if they stop drinking. I have been though hell with my little man in the early stages but really he is much better now. If it is colitis you will learn how to deal with it and he/she will be grand. PM for any advice you need.
If it is just a bug then they will give the dog a few shots to stop the vomotting and runs. Give him sloppy food or even scrambled egg (no milk or butter) and just a little of it. It helps to settle the stomach. I know that you said he smells bad but that will go when he heals.
he seems much better, well he has no projectiles coming out his mouth or bum! hes been asleep since yesterday which is so not like him :( he went looking for food this morning so its a good sign, i dont think my kitchen mat will ever recover!!
