    I have to agree with Christine..I'd be there too. It might not warrant that trip in the end..but it might save you a ton of worry all night long. And with a young puppy..it doesn't take long to get worse.

    Dehydration is going to make him worse if he can't keep anything down.

    I had to drive 1 hr at 3 am and it wasnt a big deal but it definatley gave me peice of mind! With the sympstoms im hearing I definatley think you should take the trip to the er to be looked at! If he isnt eating and vomitting everything with no fluids it could get worse!

    I dont mind the drive at all, dont get me wrong! I'll drive to the other end of this country if I have to!....But we got an x-ray today and the vet said she only saw irritation in his throat. And that his stomach and insides looked fine. She figured he was puking only because he was coughing. He has been drinking a lot of water and he does eat he just cant keep a portion of his food down he also isnt lethargic or anything......for example...he ate and 2pm and at 6pm...he threw up at 9pm maybe enough food to just cover the palm of my hand. So some of it is staying down...i am just going to go I hope its nothing serious.

    Im sorry if I made it seem as if you wouldnt do what you had to! Truley I didnt mean it if thats how it sounded! I was only saying this b/c earlier you had said he wasnt drinking water...and also if he is still coughing and throwing up other things could be a factor...

    Good! Having an X-ray is what I was hoping for. Then just sit tight..do the shower steam thing and hug your baby. I might look for another vet tomorrow who won't make you wait til Saturday. That's too long with a sick pup!

    Agree with @JAKEISGREAT I would for another vet to get you in sooner if you can. I didn't think Tess was dehydrated during her diarrhea episode because she was still eating and drinking but she was and I was glad I took her in.

    I quoted @Cooper11 because this is 100% true. And trust me, I KNOW! We can't think about tomorrow because we honestly don't know how many tomorrows we have. None of us are born with expiration dates. Not people, not pets. I have had to come to grips with this and believe me, it wasn't easy. All we can do is live for today and enjoy every second that we are given.

This is such a gut wrenching feeling, seeing him hack, and cough, and then puke his food up... I feel so helpless...Only thing I can do is put him on my lap, wrap my arms around him, and sit there while he does it...I refuse to let him go through this alone and if he pukes on me then so be it...no living thing should have to go through that alone =[I'll keep you guys posted for tomorrow and this thread acts like a digital log for me in case I need to go back a few months from now and refer to it. Keeping my fingers crossed that this goes away soon.

    Truly, thanks everyone from the bottom of our hearts!!!
    I'm not an expert by anyone's definition but I wouldn't grind the dry food. Abby can't tolerate the dry food either and that has nothing to do with her kidneys. Her system can't break down the grains in the food and she would throw it up. Like Dozer, it was whole pieces. It looked the same coming out as it did when went in, just wetter and smellier. If it were me (and it was me at one point) I'd put him on rice and boiled chicken or ground beef for a couple of days until the vomiting stops. Antibiotics are hard on the body, it kills good bacteria and bad. You need to be gentle to it for a little while then I would switch to a grain free food and see how he does with that.

    Run out to Walgreens and grab some pedialyte. They really like the fruit flavors and enjoy drinking it more than water.

    That's not to say to not get a second opinion because you absolutely need to. But while you are waiting, I would try the rice and steam. And love him up. Stay off the internet, stop reading pet shop and puppy mill horror stories. Yes they exist and yes they are horrible. But you can't torture yourself over it.

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    Try feeding some boiled rice and chicken or ground beef and see if he will keep the food down. He may not digest the canned wet food if kibble is still upsetting him. The bland diet usually sits ok in a sick bully.

    I apologize if its been mentioned as the thread is long. When we picked up Kain the breeder mentioned he wolfs his food down and then puked it up.

    Since we brought him home we were advised to add water to his food and keep it moist, I still do so today to avoid the issue but never seen it sense.

    Only time was my fault when we did tricks and he ate dry treats, then I fed him dry supper and bamn up it came.

    Now tricks 'after' supper and damp food always.

    Just adding to the 3 pages in case it helps.

    Other issue I was told is raise the dish as it allows the nose to get air while eating where a deep dish will cause him to not breathe while eating.

    There is my unqualified advice

    Go to the bulldog club if Americas website. I'm sure there's a vet listed there who can see you quicker than the other guy

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.
