The first time he threw up it was full of grass and honestly my carpet was green. Kinda took me by surprise but I just played it off as one of those EB throw ups that happen from time to time. Thirty minutes later he throws up again (just kinda foamy, not green) but then I knew something was not right. He was just laying around with those sad eyes looking up at me begging for help. After a couple more throw ups I called the vet. She said to just keep an eye on him that he probably had a virus just like we humans get. She said that I could give him some Pepto and that might help. She said to just make sure he drinks a little even if I have to give him some water in a dropper. So off to the store I go. I gave him a 1/2 teaspoon of Pepto and no more throw ups, but he is not himself and just laying around. I have taken his food away, but he has drank a little water (which is good).

    Am I doing everything right???
    How is Otis today?

    No more throwing up, but he is still laying around. He drank lots of water this morning and ate a little kibble which is good. When he pooped this morning something like a banana pepper (only way i know to describe it) came out. It had to be something he ate while playing outside. I now feel fairly certain whatever it was has upset his stomach. I will continue to monitor his poops. As long as he is eating and drinking I am not going to panic. I just wish he would perk up and be his normal self. I don't like my baby being sick.

    Sounds like you may have found the culprit, any chance he got more than one of those? Hope he is better very soon!

    What a relief! Eating drinking and pooping are all excellent signs. Sounds like you have found what upset his tummy. Dogs eat grass to settle their tummies, it helps them throw up. Throwing up is not as gross for a dog as it is for us. And as long as they get fluids and can go potty they are likely going to be just fine. Pepto-B is great for controlling nausea and upset tummy in dogs. My last dog had colitis so Pepto-B really helped her when she was nauseated and had diarrhea. The poop might look a little blackish after taking the medicine but it is nothing to worry about-the pepto seems to cause it and once it has passed through the system the poop will be a normal colour again.

    Well Otis seems to finally be back to his normal self. Thank Goodness. We had a Christmas party at our home this evening and he was feeling a little too much better. He was jumping and playing with everyone. Still not sure what it was he ate but I plan to search the back yard when it stops raining. I sure don't want him to find it again. It is good to know about the black poops because of the Pepto. I could just see me freaking out about that.

    Thanks for all the help, concerns and prayers. It is nice to know there are others there to help me through when my baby has issues.

    I'm glad to hear Otis is feeling better, and seems to have passed what ever was bugging his tummy. Yeah
