    Default Gator's not loking well any advice....

    ok i just got home and normally gator is excited to see me and also can't wait to get outta his cage... But today, no excitement he had a normal solid poop in his cage (which pooping in the cage is not normal for him) and also what looks like vomit but all his dog food in the vomit, i walked him outside and he just walked back inside. just lays there all sad looking... His nose is dry. I don't see any other physcial signs out of the norm... I know Monday night he was mischief and got ahold of my red chili sauce and had a lick, he learned his lesson reall quick. He drank a bunch of water and ate some ice cubes, but didn't seem any different afterwards and nothing was wrong yesterday or this morning..

    Any ideas or suggestions on what i should or can do... Obviously my last resort is the Vet i like to help and try remedies first.

    May just have an upset tummy, sometime they get them. As long as he is drinking I'd just see how he is tomorrow.

    I would also wait and see. Could be nothing but a tummy ache. If there isn't anything obviously wrong, then you can usually wait. Especially if his poop is normal. Mine is Gator as well! Very cool to meet another bully with that name.

    Look around and make sure that nothing is missing that he might have eaten. If he refuses food in the morning, or stops pooping/peeing then I might take him in.

    I agree..they can have a Pepcid if needed..and the only thing I'd look for is anything he might've eaten..let us know how he is tomorrow.

    ok Yeah he had a lil water hasn't vomited that up, just does that weird burp when u feel like throwing up... He's just been staying next to me and follows me around the house and then will lay down... I didn't want to take him in for nothng, or something i can handle at home. I'll give everyone an update tomorrow..

    LOL @GatorRay i named him after another "Gator" i saw from a rescue that i didn't qualify to adopt and also because i Love the show "Swamp People"

    Maybe he ate too fast this morning..they will and DO inhale their food. This can cause the vomiting and sometimes even bloat..which you need to be aware of. Jake did throw up a couple times after eating so fast. if he does this..you can get a slow feed bowl or like us. Pacer Ball..that slows them down. Just a thought for the future!

    I would leave it overnight. If you do decide to feed him tonight then I would give him white rice and some ground hamburger meat or some chicken. Just a tiny amount.

    Lets hope it's just an upset stomach. Let us know how he is in the morning!!

    Any chance he ate something foreign? Any missing toys, socks, stuffing?
