    Default Health ?

    So this morning the bulldogs slept a little later than normal thank goodness lol meaning i could sleep in a little longer. so the morning routine is get up, take spike & sparkles outside come back inside feed them then back outside. well normally i take one out at a time today i took spike out he took care of business went back inside then i took sparkles out and spike went back outside bc the door was open he started to attempt to throw up so i put sparkles back inside and was worried about spike he finally threw up some green throw up i know i'm sorry its gross...anyway right after he threw up he passed out on me for like 10-15 seconds regained consciousness then i picked him up and went inside and cleaned him up which in the mean time some how i guess his anal glands got expressed YUCK!!! what a morning.... so i sat there for awhile with him while my husband got their food ready. Spike didn't want to eat which is not normal he finally ate at about 4pm in the afternoon :{ he has been playing around and stuff but has been sleeping a whole lot more today than normal...has anybody ever had their EB pass out? Sparkles has her puppy shots scheduled for tomorrow I called the Vet and made sure i could bring spike in tomorrow as well so hopefully its nothing...its never happened before and i just freaked out :[

    whoa! that is strange. poor spike. my guy throws up pretty often, but mostly water or phlegm, never from actually being sick. someone else here should have some answers. good mommy for bringing him to the vet too, just in case. because that is definitely not normal. i know if i were to vomit bile, pass out, and leak oil out of my butt, i would be on my way to the e.r. pronto! good luck!

    Good choice to take him to the vet, he could have had a mild seizure. Did he stiffen or anything while he was throwing up? Very scary indeed. Not eating is not good either. Any chance he swallowed a part of a toy or anything?

    well.. from a "human" diagnosis standpoint.. we can actually do the same thing. It's called "valsalva" maneuver. When straining.. ie: vomiting, constipation you can put pressure on the nerve that controls the heart rate/rhythm and end up passing out. Not sure if it happens in dogs.. but maybe that is what happened?

    Wow....poor fella.....I sure hope he is okay. I am glad you are going to the vet tomorrow. Make sure and post updates so we know how he is doing, especially after the vet visit. I am sure he is fine.

    @LisaRN your bad but I am sure your not the only one that has done that.......not me though <o.

    spike is doing fine...took him to the vet on friday doctor said it prob was from him throwing up that it was probably what @LisaRN said "valsalva" maneuver but that we were going to have to watch him and see if it happens again bc it could be seizures. :[ hopefully its not that and just him passing out from the throwing up... other than that he is healthy.
