    Default More Puppy Questions and Gagging

    okay, Tate's dozed off (again), right here next to me, so i thought i'd take this opportunity to ask more questions!!

    how much do puppies sleep during the daytime anyways? seems like he's taking an awful lot of naps...is this normal?

    also, he's been gagging since he woke up this a.m...no vomiting, but heaving and then nothing, or sometimes he'll spit out phlegm.
    it's lessened since around 8am but still he'll gag on occasion. this wasn't happening yesterday...

    he's eating well but not really drinking his water which is also concerning. i have one of those water bottles that you hang on the crate (he used a similar kind at the breeder's), and i have a dish of water for him too, but he doesn't go to either one of those.

    i know he's going thru an adjustment period right now. i just want him to be happy and healthy.
    btw, will be taking him to the vet tomorrow a.m. for a general check up too.
    thanks guys, for all your support!

    The gagging is of concern. The sleeping? 18 to 20 hours a day. Definitely take him for his wellness check as soon as possible.

    I agree with Libra926 see a vet! It could be nothing, but it could be a stomach virus. Slepp? weeeeeeeeeell, the two things bulldogs do best is sleep and fart.
    It's not hard to make people love you.......all you got to do is become a bulldog!

    The sleeping wouldn't be too much of a concern to me. He's a baby and he's also been through a lot of stress in the last 24 hours. The gagging ... I'm not sure. Keep an eye on him, and thankfully you already have the appointment with the vet tomorrow so you can mention it. Is he playing?? If so, try and maybe get him to play with an ice-cube. Even when he just plays with it you will get some fluids into him. Also, how are his poops??

    The gagging concerns me...is there any way to bump up that check up at the vets?

    Yep, he has been thru a lot; he also got his 2nd set of shots this past Friday and was microchipped. Oh, and he popped a cherry eye while at the vets on friday and the breeder had it taken care of then and there. She said it was caused from stress; i'm giving him eye drops for his left eye.

    I am definitely monitoring him...he's such a precious little thing and i really do love him like my baby.
    His stools look "normal" to me--well formed, not runny, and not too hard either, color looks normal. i saved a sample to take to the vets tomorrow. Thanku for the ice cube tip, i had not thought of that. He's sleeping again but when he wakes up i'll see how he responds to his water. He has been playing but he's not very rambunctious yet...he's still checking out his surroundings and loves to chew on everything!

    We'll be at the vets at 8:30am, tomorrow morning. So far, he hasn't been gagging for a couple hrs, thank goodness, and i'll keep watching him. He's sleeping soundly right now but needs to get up soon for his lunch.

    Hey guys,

    went to the vet this a.m. and overall, Tate had a positive experience. He hasn't been gagging anymore , and the dr. thinks it was d/t "upset stomach". Tater tot weighs 14lbs! The vet said he looked fine, sounded healthy, we talked about the potential for skin problems, how it's important to clean his wrinkles every other day, at the very least, and to keep his weight on the lower end of the scale (ie, not get too fat!), as he grows up to alleviate any future ligament and respiratory problems. He'll be coming back next wk for more shots but i'm just glad he's doing well right now.

    @cadillactaste, that's what the breeder explained to me on saturday. i forgot to ask the vet today though what the common causes for popping a cherry eye is.
