I am concerned that he didn't poop yesterday after maybe 12pm and that was just the tiniest drop, we'll see how the morning walk goes. I have not taken him yet because I can't bear to break up the snuggle session we've got going on, he's resting his chin on my leg and getting some ear scratches.


    @TyTysmom Thank you for sharing, I'm worried the same might happen where they think everything is out but the X-ray missed something. I'm still waiting for the radiologist report and I'm getting impatient. He's just not himself and I'm not stopping until I get to the bottom of this. I know you didn't say it to scare me and I appreciate the reminder that we know our babies best and if we have a gut instinct that they still aren't ok, they're probably not ok.

    I should get going and head to work -- I'm glad I have a job where I can come in late in situations like this, but I'm clearly pushing it. I'm going to call the vet on my walk and see if the radiologist report is back -- she said they were taking longer than normal and it was due back by 8am. Soooo. I'll keep you guys updated.

    Here's a picture of the patient on the ride home yesterday to counterbalance the vomit pictures I posted yesterday.

    Ok update! Sorry it's so late, I've had quite the day -- check on Ruckus, call vet, email vet, email vet again, maybe do some actual work at work, check on Ruckus, and so on!

    The good news: Ruckus's vet said the radiologist reported back that they didn't see any blockage and that there was no sign of tears or major trauma from swallowing/keeping that thing in his stomach and then throwing up the whole mess! Ruckus also started to want to play with Regina some today, which yesterday he was having none of -- so some energy is returning, but he's still not looking totally like Ruckus. Oh, and he pooped !!! Poor Keith, I instructed him to take a picture and check it for anything large Ruckus might have passed -- he said people were looking at him funny.

    The not so great news: his neck is still swollen, though it hasn't gotten worse, and the hotspots have gotten slightly bigger overnight. He isn't eating the full amount of food like normal, but he will take treats and is drinking lots of water.

    I'm hoping he starts to perk up more tomorrow, if not we're going back for more tests and probably that barium X-ray. I'm lucky my vet is so responsive and willing to email me when she isn't even in the office.
    @Lalaloopsie you taught me a new word! I've been googling trichobezoar in dogs all day...

    This all sounds like improvement even if it's slow those hotspots could be causing him a little discomfort which is why he's not fully back to himself yet. The is a great sign and I assume no more vomiting!

    What did the vet give you for his hotspots just an anabiotic by mouth? Did she give you any topical cream?

    So good to see that precious mister Ruckus is doing better! He is adorable! Get well Asap, Mr. Ruckus and make some more fresh, warm, steamy piles for Mom and Dad, so they have to dig in them!

    Checking in on y'all...so thankful for a good update (hope all are resting).

    Hopefully, it is having that mess in his tummy then vomiting it up and
    then the hotspots, all could be why he's not quite himself

    Praying Ruckus continues improving by leaps & bounds, he's so handsome too!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I'm so glad to hear that Ruckus is doing better... did they do a skin scrape on that hotspot? I'm just curious as to why his neck would swell so much...

    This past summer Wally had a hotspot that went out of control fast, he was on antibiotics and I was spraying that vetericyn on it. We never did figure out what started the mess...

    Glad it's not a blockage! I'm wondering if throwing that thing up strained his neck muscles hence the swelling? Poor baby! I hope he is on the mend fast.
