    Wink Re: Finn is sick

    Hi, Henny so sorry you and Finn are going through this. You have gotten excellent advice from Becky, sheshistory, and Lisa, I agree totally with their comments. Don't feel guilty or blame yourself, I have a male Dozer who is both sneaky and quick when it comes to eating all kinds of objects, even when we are so careful to puppy proof. If it isn't nailed down he'll find it, inhale, it and swallow. So far he's been able to pass everything, thank goodness. If Finn did swallow something, hopefully he will be able to pass it or throw it up. I wouldn't give him any food since he is vomiting, it will just tax his tummy, and if the vet is going to take an X-ray tomorrow then you want his tummy to be empty, so they can have a clearer picture in case something is in there. Other symptoms that it might be an obstruction to look out for are diarrhea, vomiting, drooling water from his mouth, and listlessness, that's what Dozer had the last time he swallowed a sock. How long ago was it that you had the piece of toy on the table? Was it recent or a while ago? It can take up to a week for them to pass an object. Dozer has either thrown up or passed stuff he's swallowed through his poop, but the last time he swallowed a sweat sock, he got really sick, and lethargic, and we took him to the vet, she took an X-ray which showed a dark shadow where the obstruction was, but we didn't know what it was, she gave him IV fluids, pain medication and a strong laxative to help him pass it, she also sent us home with some fibre food in a can which we fed him a Tbsp every hour to help him pass the object. She thought he would probably need surgery, but he was able to pass it that night. It was my grandsons sock. Just keep an eye on him, and it's good he's going to the vets tomorrow, hopefully they can figure out what's causing Finn not to feel well. I hope he feels better soon. Sending hugs, love and prayers your way. Please keep us posted on what the vet says, and how Finn is doing.


    Here is a pic of the sock that Dozer ate and passed.

    I also wouldn't give him anything but water. If he needs to be sedated for any reason it's easier, safer and he will recover quicker. Usko wasn't feeling well just last week. He was vomiting and really tired. Next morning he was back to normal, so it might be nothing to worry about!

He's sleeping now and I'm sure i'll be up watching him tonight.
    Poor Finn. Please let us know what the vet says

    Thanks everyone!

    The three of us slept on the living room floor last night (well, Tate was on the sofa), just in case Finn had to throw up again. For the most part, Finn slept well but he threw up again this a.m. and still no object to be found. @Vikinggirl, he bit off that rubber piece on Sat night and I lay the piece down on the table to throw away "later" (argh!!!) that same night. So, if he did swallow it, it could've been later that night. Since he was feeling unwell on Sun a.m. already, that's what I would suspect time-line wise anyways.

    If he did swallow an object and he passes it, say in a week, will he still be exhibiting symptoms of vomiting and not eating between now and then? Scares me to think that I'm at the mercy of waiting for this thing to come out while Finn is still suffering. I'm just really worried. Thanks all.

    Otis threw up at 4am this morning - about 3 weeks ago he ate the backside of a pair of my underwear - we have been checking poop ever since and nothing - this morning along came the underwear and a piece of a plastic toy....so scary. The problem is his appetite has been fine and he was acting normal. Good luck to you and Finn.
    Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees
