    Exclamation Help my 4mo old pupp hasn't eaten much or had much water today.

    Hello, I am fairly new to this site. I have a 4 mo old English bulldog puppy. I have scheduled an appointment for him to see the vet tomorrow, but wanted some input as well. Beefy ate part of my wife's sandals yesterday and today he woke up and did not want to eat or have any water. I basically had to trick him into having water by giving him ice cubes and pouring water out of a sports bottle so he would come over and drink a little. I hope that it is just the sandal pieces that maybe upset his stomach. I did get him to eat 2 treats and a little bit of food with a hot dog, but he threw that up. He has been playing and running around for a few minutes and hen goes back to laying down and sleeping. Does anybody any suggestions? Thank you in advance and he will be seeing the vet tomorrow.

    Hi there, welcome to the site. I've tagged someone who's bully had an obstruction previously.

    If one of my bullies was acting like your pup, I'd go to the emergency clinic quick to get an x-ray. Refusing food and water is very odd, considering Beefy's only 4 months. I wouldn't want to wait till tomorrow.

    Ok it sounds to me as if your puppy has an obstruction, since you know for sure that he ate part of the sandal. He definitely NEEDS to be seen by a vet, and have an x-ray done… and I would suggest keeping a close eye on him tonight. I will tag some members who have experience w/obstruction @desertskybulldogs, @2BullyMama Good luck w/your puppy, I hope that he feels better soon!!!

    I do not know for sure if he ate part of the sandal, but there was scattered pieces on the floor so I am assuming he swallowed some small pieces. He didn't turn down the treat or hot dog with his food. He threw up about an hour or 2 after he ate and drank some water. I am looking online for a 24 hour pet clinic. I live in Temecula, ca does anybody know of a clinic or vet? Beefy's appointment is tomorrow at 8 am. Should I not be waiting til then?

    After googling, I found this clinic. Sorry, I didn't mean to alarm you. You can call the clinic and see what they say. Sometimes they'd tell you if you can wait till 8am tomorrow to see your vet, or if you should come in right away. It's just not normal for someone that young to refuse food. My guys always ask for something to eat all the time, and if they don't, that means there's something not right.

    Yes, he has pooped a few times since then and twice today. It has been solid at all times. He did have some carrots yesterday as well. Is there a possibility that gave him a belly ache?

    Thank you. I will call them right now. He did not turn down the treat or the pieces of hot dog. Just didn't want his food and usually eats it right away.

    I tagged @Vikinggirl who's dwelt w/this multiple times~she has 2 bullies.

    Is he showing signs of being uncomfortable? The problem is...IF it's an
    obstruction that he can't pass, things can go very bad even deadly (sorry)
    very quickly and many bullies die of this all the time. Monica is very experienced
    and can offer more advice as what's best to do tonight.

    He isn't showing signs of being uncomfortable. He even jumped around a few times and played catch for a little bit. He was even excited to see the inlaws. He just did not want to eat his food today or even want water. He wasn't his normal self. has been sleeping most of the day and cuddling u next to my wife and I.
