    Default Well Chunky had a good checkup along with shots at the vet saturday but,

    He is now sick to his stomach and refused his food tonight. I fasted him since after feeding him last night and the still had the runs this morning and at noon when the neighbor walked him. He refused his Orijen Six Fish dog food but ate some pure pumpkin and one hamburger patty but didn't have enough in him to poop again. I will feed him more bland food for a few days if need be but should I worry about him not eating the dog food anymore? He was doing great on it before getting his yearly shots.

    If i didn't have to be at work at 630 I would. Luckily he has held down the pumpkin and hamburger and I will see if he eats in the morning. I will probably give him less dog food than normal and pumpkin again which he hasn't had for a while now. When I was first trying to figure out what foods bothered him I eliminated the pumpkin and never added it back. It was a lot easier when I didn't work but my neighbor takes him out daily and I wouldnt be surprised if Chunky isn't at his house for a good part of the day when he doesn't have anything going on. I am not sure I would have as many friends in the neighborhood if I didn't have Chunky.

    If he doesn't eat in the morning or is still sick I will call my mother or someone and have them talk to the vet since I can't miss work since i am still on my 90 day probation period

    Dont know one dog that didn't like anything orijen makes. They usually gobble it up if your dogs has no allergies, why dont you buy a small bag of another flavour of orijen. Stick to the same brand so its not a big transition. Careful with just the fish as orijen is extremely rich.

    Sometimes after shots they aren't all themselves. He's eating a bit so that's still good. I know when my GS had the runs I would give him imodium. It stopped his runs on one dose (115lb dose) BUT...you make sure you ask your vet first!!! And if your vet offers their RC dint switch.

    BTW did you ask if your neighbour feeds him and not telling you like snack etc? Just a thought

    Poor boy, hope he feels better soon. If he is a little better tomorrow, mix in his kibble with the bland food, and slowly add more kibble as you go, as long as his tummy allows it, until you are back on his kibble 100%.

    We already tried the RC when I first got him and the local animal shelter was happy to take the rest of the bag after it making him sick. The neighbor doesn't feed him but I am not sure about his wife when she takes Chunky out which doesn't happen much since she works also. The neighbor is retired and his wife refuses too even though they don't need the money. I talked to them both about Chunky only eating dog food and I hope Chunky gets back to eating the Orijen since he has shed less and his poops were the back to where they were when he was on Orijen puppy. On Fromm he shed like crazy and the Acana I had him on became hard to find.

    I will try that in the morning and see how he does. He is acting fine since he ate the pumpkin and hamburger meat so hopefully he will get back to normal

    I fed him about 3/4 of the normal amount of Orijen he normally eats this morning along with the pumpkin and he ate it and what followed was a more normal poop. Hopefully he is getting back to normal and I wont have to take him back to the vet now

    It's not so uncommon that a dog has post-shot upset stomach. It's nothing to be overly concerned about. They always come around within a couple of days.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    It is normal for some to have a little upset after shots. Did he get a rabies shot? I am glad to see he is slowly getting back to normal. Kisses Chunky!

    Awww poor boy! I agree it is probably just from the shots and he should return to normal soon! We take Biscuit today for her checkup.

    Hope it was only from the shots, and he's better now. Poor Chunky, shots are for the birds!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
