    Default My sick meatball...

    It has been long few days. Meatball and I are still up because he is walking around bed because he stomach is still hurting. I am waiting for him to get sick.

    The story is almost 4 months ago meatball was getting sick around the house one day could not figure out what his problem was until I found end of a Nayla bone missing. Took him to see Dr G in Denver to do XRays. He came back clean.

    Well fast forward to this past Sun. I woke at 5 am with Meatball getting sick in bed. I take him out where he gets sick again. It happened at least 10 timed before 8 am. He did not want food so I knew something major was wrong. Took him into VCA to get checked out. We got to see the xrays and what do you know a bone part been inside for 4 months. They we going to do surgery for him shortly. When they were preparing him for surgery he got sick again and it came up. They did more Xrays and could not see anything.

    Mon stayed home with him and glad that I did because he became sick two more times and would not eat the Dry food the vet told us to buy for stomach issues. Went back in and suggested wet food. He ate the food and seemed great.

    Tues stayed home in the am where I feed him more dry food with the wet. Looking great when I left him. Came home 4 hrs late had the runs in two place in the house. Just thinking food is new could not hold it. He had dinner went for a walk where he saw a few buddies that he ran with for 2 mins. Going back home he got sick off dinner in yard. Got him cleaned up a in bed with wife where he got sick again. Wet food makes a mess! Took him out for fresh air and some grass. Came back in and was sick in 5 mins. Called vet and our Dr will be back in at 7 am. Will need to do Ultra Sound to double check nothing else is inside. I just wish he would fall asleep tonight because the walking every 5-10 mins does not help me sleep. Sorry for long post just can't sleep.

    I am so sorry to hear, but I know what you are going through, our bulldog bazza got hold of one of the kids plastic toys, we didn't know, we believe this toy had been in for weeks not sure, first of all, he was on and off food, and was sick here and there. Then one day, he threw up inside and outside 10 or more times, he looked funny when he walked, like in pain, he was not happy, tail was not wagging, took him to the vet, worst drive ever, he just sat there I was worried he might be so sick and not make it, the vet felt his tummy and could feel something, then they did an xray they could see something in his bowel, they did emergency surgery lucky for us none of the bowel died off which can happen. He is now fully over it, never throws up hardly, but I look back and wonder how long it had been in there, as he seemed for weeks on and off throwing up and going off his food. This only happened a few months ago, so I really really do no how you feel, Anyway its horrible seeing you bully so sick, hope all goes well, let us know.

    Hi, so sorry you and Meatball are going through this, and I hope the vet finds out what is wrong with him. I have a male who eats everything and everything, but he especially loves sweat socks. He threw up one, and the other one he passed through his poop. He also passed a dish cloth. He's cost us lots of vet money, but thankfully so far he's passed what he's swallowed, and we have dodged the surgery bullet, but he's so fast and sneaky, when he grabs stuff he hides under the dining room chairs, they have a skirt on them, or if he's outside he would go under the car and swallow whatever he had, like rocks, pinecones, paper, so now he is always on a leash outside so he can't grab stuff, and if he does I can take it out of his mouth, at least he lets me do that, and never bites me. Silly boy. I hope Meatball feels better soon. Keep us posted on what the vet says and how he's doing. Sending love, hugs and prayers your way.

    Hope meatball gets well soon. Hope the Ultra Sound goes well and leads the vets to solving his problem quick. Get better meatball.
