    how long has this been going on? Lola was once sick for about 24hours, vomiting, shaking with the chills, but I think that was a stomach bug. It's hard to tell by what you've written whether your bully has an obstruction from eating something he shouldnt, or whether he's sick with something else. HAs he been pooping normally? YOu could try ice cubes or chicken broth to keep him hydrated. little bits are ok. I like to give Lola water from the bathtub faucet using my hand and she will lap it up slowly.

    If he's losing weight we have a problem. Could be something serious, please get him to the vet soon,

    I'm sorry that Bugzy isn't well. Do you think he ate something he shouldn't have? The ice cube suggestion is good--you could hold one to his mouth and hopefully he will lick on it. If he's in bad shape is there an emergency vet you can take him to tonight?

    I would also get to the vet, if losing weight... that is not a good sign. And, I agree with April Marie... try ice cubes tor broth to get him hydrated.

    Please keep us posted... will keep you and Bugzy in my thoughts

    I would get him to the vet ASAP, with a stomach bug, they usually don't loose weight. Hope it's not too serious and he gets better soon.

    He's probably dehydrated and will need fluids, I would get him to the vet. If you have no emergency vet you can also try water from a syringe. Please keep us posted on your boy.

    If he's overly dehydrated you can tell by pinching his skin between his shoulders near the neck if the skin stays somewhat in the pinch position he very dehydrated.

    Hopefully it is just upset because of something he shouldn't have eaten. When Mila gets sick we give her crushed ice. They seem to like it.
