    Default OMG, Vegas is so sick

    I came home tonight after work and walked into 8 separate piles of morning breakfast and phlem, he seemed OK and greeted me at the door wagging his butt. I got all his bedding and spots cleaned up and he went over to drink some water, lasted about 5 minutes and he threw that up with yet more breakfast. I am watching him closely and can find nothing from toys or trash missing. I am a worried mess, Vegas has never done this before. Do you think I should try a bland diet tonight or wait and try in the morning?

    I am forgetting all I know........ Is there anything I can give him for his tummy??

    I don't see anything that he could have gotten in to and his throw up is all breakfast and water. Poo is normal. He has been on an antibiotic for 7 days now and has 3 more days left for his eye ulcer (that has completely cleared up) Vegas is 4.5 yrs. old and never been sick like this so yes... I am panicking!!

    i would do bland tonight. Do you have anything lying around the house? I literally was just talking to a woman who said her dog got under her bedroom dresser and ate rat poison and she didn't find out for a week, she fed him mass amounts of vitamin k per the vet and he'll be fine.

    I have looked all over the house, nothing is out of place and it would be very unlike Vegas to do anything but sleep while Im at work. I took the trash out this morning so there wasent even any trash in the house.

    Becky's probably right he is just having a reaction to the antibiotics, poor guy. I'm sorry, give him a hug from me.

    When Loki's allergies are out of control he will throw up a combo of phlegm and food too. Our vet recommended bread or rice to help and soak come of the phlegm up in his tummy. Does he seem to be coughing or sneezing a lot?

    No coughing or sneezing, just laying wide awake by my side, I think even he is worried, but not as much as me!!

    He does act hungry, when I gave him an ice cube, he thought it was something else and snapped it right out of my hand, when he figured out is was only an ice cube he spit it back out. lol

    I wouldn't give him anything else by mouth tonight. If the vomiting continues you can give him some ginger. Mix it in some applesauce if you have it. 1tsp of ginger 1/2 cup of applesauce. Give him 2 or 3 tsp of the applesauce mixture every hour. If you don't have applesauce mix it with some yogurt or kefir. I know you have that in the house In fact!! Give him the kefir with the ginger. That's better

    Most importantly, relax. He knows you are stressed and it will start to stress him.

    Tomorrow morning give him a light meal of soft boiled egg or something light.
