    to you both!
    Yes, he took 2 x-rays and saw a lot in his lungs. Apparently in an x-ray healthy lungs should be black meaning the light shines through during an x-ray. If light is stopped by fluid, etc. it shows up white. There was a lot of white on his x-ray. I have digital copies in dcm format unfortunately I havent' found a way to view them on my linux computer, maybe there is something on windows that works.

    This morning he spit up a lot of mucus and a little bit of his beef and rice. He was heaving some too which worried my wife but I have seen him do this most mornings so I think this was just the congestion settling as he slept. He is plenty playful and running around not gagging now so we are hoping it is clearing up. We see the vet at 6pm today for another shot and checkup. I'll post an update after that.

    I've said this before but I really appreciate all of the constant feedback and advice.

    Just wanted to provide everyone with an update. Toby seems to be back to a healthy dog. No hacking, vomiting, or spitting up anything. He is doing great thanks to everyone here. He is now eating Fromm dog food and eats it within 30 seconds. Guess that is the next thing that I have to be concerned about. Thanks again everyone.

    Excellent news! Thank you for the update! Now, look into slow feed bowls or other ways (even a river rock in the dish).

    We got a Slow Feed Ball for Jake. It's porcelain so can goin the dish washer..(in fact, that's where I store mine) and it really helps slow them down. I ordered it from Amazon.. With his recent problems..you don't want to have to worry out bloat!

    I had thought about that. I read somewhere that I should get a metal or porcelain bowl instead of plastic and the only slow fee bowls I saw were plastic. I got lucky and found that if I mix a couple tablespoons of yogurt in his bowl (I also add Nupro) it takes him about 7 minutes to eat instead of 45 seconds so I am happy with that even though it is more work than just scooping it in his bowl. If I tire of doing that I will look again for a slow fee bowl. Thanks for your advice.

    Ya! I found the same problem looking for bowls..this is a Ball! But since then I have seen the bowls in stainless too..
