    Thanks again everyone!

    I didn't read through all of the posts to see if anyone already said this but my little bully Cinnamon started to do this (noit as bad as your pup) but she had all the same symptoms and it ended up being a parasite called giardia. The vet told us it wasn't a parasite that can be easily detected unless they were looking for it or if it was in small numbers. Two weeks of meds and she was all good. Not sure if that helps, but I figured the more info the better. Hope he feels better soon.

    Sounds like a ultra sound or a endoscope needs to be done. X-rays only show certain things. Our lab ate a plastic Easter egg, out vet did X-rays didn't show anything so we were sent to another vet and he did a endoscope and a ultrasound and they found a "mass". Went in and did a exploratory surgery and found the egg in his small intestines.
    Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

    Thank you everyone for your kind wishes and advice. I just got back from getting a second opinion (with a third vet consulting), and they're doing a barium series as we speak. None of the doctors' have a definitive diagnosis, but hopefully this will give us some clarity as to what is going on with poor Bailey. I just looked up the process of doing a barium series, and found out that it involves putting a tube down his throat into his tummy, so now I'm completely freaking out because I know it's going to be painful and scary for Bailey. They're going to call me in four hours with an update.

    The vet said that he sees a lot of sick bullies from these treats that involve random cow parts that someone decided to package up and sell to make a buck. He sees a lot of digs who've gotten sick from bully sticks in particular, which are apparently cow penises. Davidh, you are absolutely right! No more treats for them that are made from anything that I wouldn't consider eating myself!

    The only thing I can think of is pancreatitis, but usually that becomes very serious quickly so the vet would be able to find out. I hope he is feeling better soon! You also might want to get a second opinion from a different vet. That's unusual they didn't find anything wrong.

    I'm sure they will put him under anesthesia for tubing so he won't feel a thing. Hopefully he gets better soon, hang in there!

    My Bella almost choked to death on a rawhide, it's really sad how many things they sell as dog "treats"
    I was just checking to see how Bailey is doing, hopefully they will find out something soon. Sending hugs & prayers… keep us posted!!!
