    @MFrey2012 unfortunately not well. Thank you for checking on him. We appreciate it so much!

    Update:
    He continued a couple more times to do the same thing and it just didn't feel "okay" to me. I was on the phone with my vet (who is the ABSOLUTE best!) when Ranger began to heave violently as if he was going to throw up. Which he's never done. Ever. Before I could put the phone down and grab him,he vomited and passed out. My vet said to immediately put him in the car and meet her at the office (which is a 5-6min drive) he was lifeless y'all. After exam and X-rays the diagnosis is aspersion pneumonia due to vomit. He is doing "okay" now but it's very, very bad. You cannot even see his left lung on X-ray due to so much fluid. He is stable and on a TON of meds, oxygen tent and getting supportive care. We have no idea what caused the nausea, upset stomach or vomit as we've changed NOTHING at all. As most of you know this is very bad and can take a very long time to recover from. We need y'all. Our pack. Please, pray for my sweet boy. We are so worried for him. Thank you all.

    Castor too likes to hold hands (to the point that it actually hinders me sometimes when I work from home. But it's difficult to say no when such sweet little ones want to hold your hand!
    @cefe13 thank you for your advice, we appreciate it so much and I'm so grateful I listened to my gut instincts and called the vet.

    @Ranger777 Oh my goodness Ashley, how scary!! - when Ellie was 5 months old, she woke up one night and vomited 5-6 times, and the next 2 days was not breathing right, so off to the vet we went, after contrast xrays to make sure did not have a blockage, she also had a mild case of AP, not knowing what it was, and they told me she to stay at the hospital for a couple days, I was terrified!! So I am here if you need anything if nothing but just an ear.

    Ellie and I will pray HARD for Ranger!! Ranger - YOU GOT THIS!!


    Thanks and much Love,

    Melissa - Ellie's Mom

    @Ranger777 Oh dear, poor Ranger. We're thinking of him (and you!) and hoping he will soon feel better.

    Ranger doesn't always breathe this way, unless of course he's exerted himself and he does the "typical bully" loud mouth breathing. But, today he's occasionally came to me and gave me his paw (which is always to say "mom, I need you now) He'll go from regular closed mouth breathing to this heavy open mouth breathing. He hasn't been over exerting himself today and it's rained most of the day, so he's been inside all day. Maybe it's nothing and I'm just being an overly worried momma. Just curious if anyone else's baby does/has done this?

    How is Ranger doing now?
