    Default Some Stuff. Input needed.

    Daphne's birthday was last week. She turned one. I bought her a new pink tutu, a tiara and pink lei, but all festivities were cancelled as she became ill on Friday. The first sign was she refused to eat. Yes, fat Daphne refused to touch any food. She became lethargic. Again, hard to tell lethargy from regular super calm mellow Daphneness. She began drinking copious amounts of water followed by huge vomiting of clear water with a bit of foam. This is sort of her "I ate too many lizards" behavior, but much more intense. She had spent Friday afternoon hunting 'wizards' with the three and four year d boys next door. I figured she'd be fine on Saturday as it's usually an overnight stomach thing after Lizard hunting.
    Saturday, refusing food again. Also water and vomiting, almost projectile. I removed food and water. Slept most of day. First time ever, she wanted in our bed not her crate. We let her. She was pretty restless and very clingy.
    Sunday the same. Monday, 8 am called Sarasota Bulldog vet recommended here on forum. She was given 9 am appt. Exam and X-rays. No blockage of any kind, everything else normal. She was given a shot of Cerenia for vomiting. She has Cerenia 60mg x 1 daily for 7 days.
    The rest of the day Monday she slept. She refused food. I just let her have a small amount of water every so often. Tried hand feeding her...no go. She put herself in her own crate for bed last night.
    Today she appears slightly more alert. She refused food. I let her have about 1/2 cup of water. She had her pill with a piece of cheese. She hasn't thrown up yet.
    The only upside to the whole thing is that we saw the Bulldog vet and he said she was, at 44lbs, not overweight. Her hips are perfect, great bone structure, perfect eyes, breathing fine etc. Evidently when my SIL weighed her last week and said 47lbs, he did the math wrong...whew.
    So any input on Daphne's present situation would be appreciated.

    PS: after Oscar Mayer's recent swallowed TV remote I figured Daphne had a blockage of some sort and am very relieved there was no more blockage. But still, I have no idea what's wrong with her.

    Did they only do X-ray to rule out blockage?
    When Tyson had eaten 3 socks they did several X-rays and ultrasounds and none picked up the socks. It wasn't until we did a barium study that finally it picked up the final sock he hadn't vomited. Not saying she's blocked and hopefully it was just a bug of sorts and will be ok in a few days with meds.

    Tyson also got listeria once from when he was eating raw, that was horrible and took a few days to recover.

    BUT if she continues to vomit, reject food or becomes lethargic more, I'd push for barium.

    When a dog has an upset belly they drink tons of water so they vomit.... is it possible she ate a lizard?

    Otherwise, I agree with Jessica push for barium test of she is not any better tomorrow

    Could she be bitten by a tick? Lethargy and vomiting could come from Lyme or encephalitis...

    Whatever is ruled out or ruled in, we hope Daphne is feeling better soon. We use Famotidine 10-20 mg which is an acid reducer for Jewel when she pukes but we know she suffers from empty tummy syndrome.

    Famotidine is the active ingredient in the antacid Pepcid.

    Wondering how @Daphne DuMaurier is doing? Praying for her and also hoping it is nothing serious,although when out "kids" are sick, it is always serious.
    My best to little Daphne, and better lay off the lizards!?

    Just wondering how you are solving empty stomach syndrome? My dog seems to be gaining weight as I'm feeding her a bit extra to prevent the bilious vomiting when her stomach gets too empty.

    HOw is Daphne doing today?

    There was a previous post about Daphne and I am really sad to say she passed away. Look for the post "Daphne".
