    Default My Bulldog Sure Knows How To Worry Me!

    Tonight every time Debo would breath in, he would throw up, so I thought he was choking to death! So I reached down his throat and & I pulled out foam & blood! Then I flipped him upside down & tried to do the Heimlich maneuver, that didn't work either. So I rushed him to the ER, going 80 mph, in a 40 mph zone, running red lights, shaking like a leaf, & almost giving myself an asthma attack because I thought he was going to die! It turns out he has Bronchitis, those bulldog coughs are scary! He has been coughing a little bit lately, but I disregarded taking him to the Vet again, because I thought it was just allergies! I learned my lesson!

    Another lesson I learned is to keep my Emergency Vet's number & address handy, because I had to look it up, & that would have taken way too long if he really was choking to death!

    And, I took him in for a cough about two months ago & the Vet gave him antibiotics that made him throw up, so I didn't give them to him as prescribed, I would give him one, one day, & two the next, then skip a day. I'm so stupid! I will never do that again! Lesson learned!

    You r not stupid! Imagine had he been choking and you assumed he wasn't? Always best to be wrong on this side of it. Have to say this did make me laugh a little tho. Picturing all this and debo mst have been thinking "what the heck is going on here? "

    Yup, these bullies sure can get us all stressed out and anxious! It would be fine one minute and then all worry like the next!

    How's your baby doing today? And how's his mama too? Hope everything can be fixed in a jiffy. And what's a mega esophagus?

    Emily, I personally would have been worried had you not done what you did. These pets are like infants, they can't talk, they can't say they hurt, and it's up to you to figure out how to get the message of whats wrong…. Had you not rushed him to the Vet like you did, I'd been more worried about Debo being with the right parent. Like said before, your error was on the side of caution. I hope he gets to feeling better soon. He's surely fortunate to have you!

    Momma2Bullies, I'm taking him to his regular Vet on Tuesday & I'll make sure to ask about that, all this ER Vet said about the Megaesophagus, is that it can cause aspiration, which can cause pneumonia. He has had a previous history of pneumonia.


    Cali-Jenn, haha! He probably was thinking that! I think he knew I was trying to help him though too.
