    Default Wellie's in the Hospital.

    About 9 am he became very lethargic. Didn't want any treats, didn't want to move, and was obviously in pain.
    We thought it was his tummy since we're in the middle of switching him from boiled hamburger to Fromm.

    Then about 12, after Blue's training session, we saw he wasn't any better and now his breathing was shallow as well. We got in the car, and took him straight to the emergency hospital here.

    They x-ray'd his chest (twice), did full blood work including gas and also did a sonogram. Turns out he has Aspiration Pneumonia.
    He got it from swallowing his own vomit. They also saw something on his spleen, but the radiologist was gone by the time they did it so we won't know until Monday.

    They put him in an Oxygen room when we got there, but turns out he's breathing fine on his own.
    He's receiving an antibiotic through an IV, along with nebulizer treatments. The vet responsible for coordinating his care just called. Said provided it's a "typical case" of aspiration pneumonia, and there's no antibiotic resistant bacteria, he'll be home in 4-5 days.

    On the positive side- since it's a hospital they're opened 24/7, they said we can come in and see him whenever we want. Just give them a little notice so they can get a room ready for us.

    Trying to keep it together here but it's hard. My heart just breaks for this little guy. Just as he was finally getting settled in, this had to happen.

    Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this, Ellie!

    Wellie is in good hands though and will be well taken care of. I know it's so scary and worrisome though. He's in my thoughts and prayers right now!

    thank god he's in good hands now, and soon this will all be over. You have great eyes and ears to see something was wrong with Wellie. Those are symptoms that we should aways react to. hope he can find some comfort there for a few days. i hope you can find some comfort in the absence of your Wellie too. I know it must be terribly hard.

    edit, i'm going to take lola out for bedtime business and then give her some PB. she vomits a bit into her mouth every night because the raw food digests so fast in her belly, its empty by midnight. maybe a bit of PB will prevent the nightly vomiting and potentially a trip to the ER.

    Thank you guys. Your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated.

    @aprilemari absolutely- I always give them a snack before bed. You can even save a bit of her dinner to give her before bed. I remember when Blue was on raw, I noticed he had reflux a lot more than he has it now.


    But with Wellie, he gags and throws up foam after 15 minutes of play. He doesn't have any stamina because of his breathing. He was scheduled for a neuter, along with soft palate resection/saccules removal and nare widening. Once it gets done, his breathing should be better, and the throwing up foam/food should stop for the most part.
