explosive poo....help

It's 3 am and I am just finished cleaning up liquid brown poo from the crate for the 2nd time in a row.

Bruno has literally had water poo the last 48 hours...what do I do? He came back from my parents just fine but had a food switch because they ran out...and now this. Any input would be helpful.

Re: These damn puppies are going to be the death of me.

Poor Luke....getting blamed for all of this. I don't believe one word out of your mouth I tell ya....he is most probably innocent and the rats are doing all the damage and framing him. Or maybe it's a lizard. Yep...gotta be one of them.

My boy is home

Bruno is home and looks great. He was so happy to see me and my daughters...I almost cried. His incision is awful looking...all frankenstein-ish but hey...I'll take it. Stitches out in 2 weeks. He is already passed out in "his" spot on the couch with a blankie. :)

Re: Bruno surgery update

Seeing something on x-ray and not finding it when you go take a peek is not unusual at all... I would be shocked if your insurance didn't at least cover some portion of the costs. The good news is your vet DID look at every last inch of your pups GI tract, and there's nothing to be concerned about....

Bruno surgery update

Hey everyone! I am back from a great camping weekend with the family & finally able to update with more details on Bruno. So you all know he ate a corn cob, puked some of it up, and was punk/vomiting/not eating on and off for 10+ days. Last Thursday I took him for an xray finally since he got si...

Thanks guys.....I appreciate it. I don't know if I will be able to update since we are going to go ahead with our camping plans. I'll see what I can work out. :)

surgery tomorrow - please think good thoughts for Bruno & I

Remember the corn cob he at over 10 days ago? Well he was puking again this morning. It has been on and off since it happened. And I finally asked my vet for an xray. Sure enough...he has a decent sized chunk of something (ahem - corn cob) rolling around in his stomach. The vet thinks it is acting l...

Re: I don't know what to do...

Why not feed him some canned pumpkin to help "grease the wheels" bowel wise? Yeah, someone had suggested that as well. I might do that today. He is going to come home this morning. The vet said what he felt yesterday isn't there...so either it's a partial that is moving about or it's not ...

Re: I don't know what to do...

OMG really?! The vet put him on the table to take the xray and then the tech said that the machine wasn't working....and it was indeed BROKEN. :eek: We talked and he said he was very mopey when I left but after about a half hour perked up a bit to even play some. So they offered him some food to see...

Re: I don't know what to do...

I did try to palpate myself. I didn't think there was anything in the intestines yet but other than that...I don't know what I am feeling. I decided to take him in after puking more today. The vet said he was to feel him and just be certain so I didn't have to deal with a true emergency over the wee...

I don't know what to do...

I am so tired of feeling lost as to what to do. Bruno is back to vomiting today although it's minimal. He had a bowel movement yesterday and has been eating and drinking (although not like he normally does). How long can I just sit around and wait and hope that he isn't blocked and will be fine? Is ...

Re: Does ayone else's dog suffer from allergies??

Yep my boy has pretty bad allergies but thankfully not like yours! UGH. What a nightmare...I feel for you. I too add fish oil and vit E (obviously that won't work for you). I feed a fish based food as well again, won't work for you. I will say I did find an organic bar soap that helped with his coat...

Re: update to my emergency advice needed the other day

I have one but it's crappy from her phone. I will try to upload it a bit later. Cute pup.

I did get her to tell me the total bill for the incident. $2700 for surgery plus the ER visit. :eek:

update to my emergency advice needed the other day

Just a quick update. My friend did indeed opt for the plating as it was just as expensive to amputate and Daisy is so young. So, Daisy is home now and doing very well. Taking all her medications like a good dog. She did beautifully during surgery and the vet said it was a great plate job. So after s...
