I am just going to put this out there.....could he have eaten something he shouldn't? As in something he cannot digest?
He is up and around now and seems fine. He went outside and peed and pooped. It was raining earlier and he didn't want to go out in it. It is still raining a little now but he is a lot happier than when he first woke up. We have an appointment at 10:00 CST so we are about to go. His poop was pretty soft. I'll keep yall posted.
Just got back from the new vet and he didn't like his breathing. He ran a CBC blood test and found 21,000 white count and took xrays and found that they weren't clear (black) but had a lot of white on the xray. He was very concerned and wanted to give him Gentacin and Pennicillin so I called my vet and he agreed that sounded good. The new vet is coming in to the closed office tomorrow to give Toby another shot of Gentacin. There was also a Dex phos injection which my vet said was a cortizone shot but not sure since it was hard to hear him on the phone with the spelling, guess it is an abbreviation. He also suggested 200mg Muscinex twice a day. We didn't really get in to the food and vomiting since he was mainly concerned about this issue. He said it could be allergies but typically dogs don't get allergies until they are over 1 yr old but he wouldn't rule it out. He also suggested "ID" which was some brand they sold there. It was something like ingestion diet or something, didn't get it since I have had issues with food already. He wasn't keen on the bland diet, he wanted him to get nutrients, etc. I assumed that adding a little Fromm to the beef and rice would be ok, not sure. I was leaning towards just the beef and rice since he vomited this morning a lot.
aw sounds like the new vet is on it. i hope things get better for you and for toby. the id is probably hills science diet id which is not good food. you can always maybe give him a half a vitamin or something to get the nutrients he needs. lots of :hugs: from sarah and me. lots here use beef and rice as bullies dont do well with chicken as a rule. maybe a probiotic with all that antibiotics and stuff.
Toby seems to be doing better as far as congestion, I don't here him near as much so that is good, however, he is peeing constantly in the house. He has been hard to train but usually can hold it quite awhile so we don't have a lot of accidents if we are paying attention. He seems to be peeing every half hour or so, sometimes it seems sooner. I am assuming this has to do with the gentacin and/or pennicillin (or maybe the Dex phos, whatever that is).
Probably so, some of those I don't know what it is, but if it's any type of steroid he will pee and drink tons.

Fromm if he isn't vomiting.
Man..you have been through a lot..and poor Toby! I do hope this helps him. Cortisone will make him hungrier and very thirsty. Make sure to take him out more. As I was reading your updates my thoughts were also that he ate something. Jake has eaten stuff and it's taken 2 weeks before he started vomiting and/or pooping it out. A blockage will often cause symptoms like Toby's. Pease keep us informed..
Hoping things are gettig better! Im not sure if you mentioned this but have they taken xrays to check for something he may have eaten that he isnt digesting?
to you both!
Everyone wants to kiss a bullie
fromm goes ok and helps.
