    Default Ruckus Update

    He's still at the vet since yesterday morning. After having no luck with enemas they sedated him this afternoon to do a scoping procedure to remove the blocked poo. Just got a call and that didn't work either. The doc is going to open his belly and use his hands to try to work it out. If that doesn't work we have to take him to another vet hospital to have colon surgery. Our vet isn't staffed 24hrs to keep ruckus monitored or he would do the surgery himself. Please keep fingers and toes crossed that he doesn't need colon surgery!!

    wow, Did they xray him to see what is causing the blockage. I am mystified that they aren't wanting to go in and see at this point. Prayers are still your way.

    Always with me

    The first thing they did yesterday were the x rays. Then after each enema they did more x rays to see how much was passed. We've been talking with the vet through each step. When they did the scope it was a solid rock so they couldn't get it out. He's trying to prevent colon surgery since it's pretty risky. I just keep blaming myself for switching his darn food. And I can't believe he is this blocked up in such a short time.

    Awwww don't blame yourself! I highly doubt it is the food if there is a blockage. More than likely something foreign .... I cannot tell you the strange things I have pulled out of my bullies bottoms- including cardboard, blankets, toys, and the worst was a 15 inch piece of a sheet! I even met a lady at the vets once with a bulldog who was getting a small kong toy removed surgically that day.

    There was another member on here who switched foods and their bully had a blockage- ended up being the head of a toy. They thought it was the food as well. Who was that? Anyone remember? Keep thinking babyduke but not sure...

    Anyhow.... No blame upon yourself. You are trying to do the best for your baby, and you are a good bully mom to recognize that something was not right and got him to the vet. Hugs! Prayers all goes well!

    I'm sorry you're going through this too.Prayers go out to Ruckus that the blockage will be resolved w/out surgery and if surgery is needed, it will be a success. Like the others said, don't blame yourself...all you are doing is being the best bully parent you can be. Lots of hugs to you and Ruckus.
