    Default Lear is sick! :(

    Hello Guys,

    My baby Lear is 3.5 months old. She has been eating premade raw patties since I got her.
    On Friday, I both ground chicken and turkey and froze it for 48 hours. On Sunday night I started to feed her ground chicken and pre made patties (half and half).
    Did the very same with my other pup Pitts. (He is fine!)

    I noticed she was a little quiet on Monday. On Tuesday she pooped in her crate (normal poop). She never poops in her crate.
    Yesterday she started vomiting and having liquid diarrhea. This morning same thing, so I took her to the vet.
    Oh.. forgot to mention, I found a piece of plastic on her poop this am. But she continued vomiting on the way to the vet.

    He did a parvo test and it came back negative (Thank GOD!). But she vomited the medicine the vet gave her.

    She is on IV now. The vet still doesn't know what's going on.

    The vet said it could be related to the ground chicken. But the other pup is fine!

    Any ideas??

    Thanks a lot. Any comment is highly appreciated.

    This is a pic of her going to the vet this am. Poor baby!

    Hi, so sorry you're going through this with Lear. I was going to suggest to you that she may have eaten something that you didn't know about, and since you mentioned that you found a piece of plastic in her poop, I think that's what is causing her to have diarrhea and vomiting. These are both signs of an obstruction, or of having swallowed a foreign object. My English Bulldog Dozer has swallowed sweat socks twice, and both times he had the same symptoms, he started with diarrhea, then vomiting, he drooled water from his mouth. He ate and drank like normal, and had normal poops as well, but then after the symptoms started, he became lethargic. We brought him to the vet, and Shelley his stomach and could feel a mass in there, she took an X-ray which showed a shadow of something in his Intestines. She gave him IV fluids, pain medications, and a laxative. She sent us home with a fibre prescription dog food, which we fed him a Tbsp once every two hours, and he was able to pass the sock that evening. We didn't know he had eaten a sock, and it could have been there for a week or more. It takes time for them to pass items out, and most of the time they are able to do so, but you have to keep an eye on her and watch and check every pop to make sure they do pass it. If they can't, or they continue to be sick, sometimes surgery is necessary to remove the foreign object. I hope Lear is able to pass the rest on her own, and I hope she feels better soon. Sending love, hugs and prayers your way. Please keep us posted on how she's doing.

    Oh praying for beautiful Lear.

    It could be related to the chicken, but it could be not. Hopefully you'll figure it out soon. Do you think she ate a toy because of the plastic? What procedures did the vet do? x-rays perhaps?

    I'm sorry to hear she is not feeling well. I hope she is better soon. Does the vet have a plan of action?

    Hey everybody thanks for all responses!
    The vet will do blood work. He is afraid the baby has an infection or something.
    Will call them in an hour. I had to leave her in the vet and come to work

    I will call and suggest an x-ray. I think it is a great idea!

    Thanks,
    Vanize

    Is it possibly the raw chicken, and her being such an early age?

    The facial expressions kill me with these pups. You really can see when they are in distress. Baxter had the same look on his face yesterday when he was so sick.

    A lot rear their pups with raw from the very beginning. They're always ground, but all meat and bones.
