    Default Throwing up Bulldog! Help me!

    My bulldog's name is Sullivan and he is 9 months old. We were feeding Sully 3 times a day but then we lowered it to 2 times a day because he didn't seem to be eating quickly. We also changed flavors within the Fromm grain free brand of food. Now when we feed him in the morning he usually doesn't finish until about 2 and generally eats his dinner within an hour or two. For the past week or two he has been vomiting. In the beginning it was like yellow bile and we thought it was because he wasn't eating consistently but now he eats a little more regularly but will throw his food up at night sometimes or the next morning. He will randomly throw up slobber and yellow stomach bile still as well. Do you have any idea what it could be? Please help my poor baby!

    He may have swallowed something ( bit of a toy or a chew )
    If he's constantly been sick for over 2 weeks I would take him straight to the vets
    Hope he's ok

    We just went through this with Agatha Gump and it was, indeed, a piece of a toy. Agatha threw up, only at night, for four nights. Finally she dislodged the culprit. Hopefully, your boy will do likewise although checking with your vet would be prudent.

    I would take him to the vet just to make sure it isn't some kind of blockage.

    Hi, I agree with everyone's suggestion that it could be a obstruction. I was going to say the same thing, vomiting, diarrhea and drooling are signs of ingesting something or an obstruction from swallowing something. Could Sullivan have swallowed something that you don't know about? Is anything missing, or any pieces missing from any of his toys? My Dozer has swallowed socks on 4 different occasions, and I only knew about one of them, the other 3, I didn't know he had swallowed them. He started vomiting, and then the diarrhea, we have been really lucky so far, that he has been able to pass them, by either throwing them up, or pooping them out. Since its been ongoing for 2 weeks, I would have him checked out by the vet to make sure he's okay, and he should have either an X-ray, or a barium X-ray to see if anything is lodged in his intestine. I hope it's nothing serious and Sullivan gets better soon. Please keep us posted, on how he's doing, and what the vet says. Sending love ,hugs and prayers that he's okay.

    Hi it sounds like an obstruction/blockage that Sully is struggling to remove from either end of his body.

    also to help with the lack of interest in food .. if this is in general and not because of a blockage... it might be if its being left down all day to free feed he just picks at it rather than gets excited and wants it - he knows its there for a nibble whenever so doesnt bother to hurry with it and doesnt show a great interest. We went through this with Meeko he would just keep going back and forth picking small bits through the day so changed to schedule feeding. I put the bowl down in the morning for about 15 mins whatever isn't eaten is tough l. keep it up all day and put his food down in the evenin for 15 mins. It takes a few days where he didnt get it so didnt eat much but now he gets it he gobbles up the lot in about 5mins xx

    How is Sully???

    My boy, Hank (18 months old), has thrown up a dozen times in the last 24 hours. After reading on this site I gave him just a bit of rice yesterday, but he threw that up too. I let him drink, but I let him have too much and he threw all that up too. Now I've just been giving him ice cubes every so often.

    After reading a lot of posts here, I'm worried he has an obstruction.... so we're off to the vet soon. We live in eastern NC which has been pretty much shut down due to snow the last two days and it's Friday.... so I'm worried about getting him in!

    Thanks for this site, it's been a great resource...

    Default Throwing up Bulldog! Help me!

    I'm praying for both of you
    @MrMrsDevilDoc it sure does sound like an obstruction, poor baby! Please let us know how it goes at the vet.


    Sullivan could have an obstruction, but I would get him in for some blood test to see what else could be going on.

    Thanks for the prayers guys... I really appreciate it.

    Well, I got Hank into the vet and she felt his abdominal area and couldn't feel anything. She said he was dehydrated, so he received subcutaneous fluids, some penicillin (or something like it), and an anti-vomiting shot. She also prescribed him Metronidazole. She seemed to thing it is a stomach bug and not an obstruction. So.... he is to have no food and only some no sodium, low fat chicken broth later today. If he holds that down, then she said to give him a small amount of white rice, but not till tomorrow.
    So.... we shall see.

    He was so good at the vet too... it's so sad when they aren't feeling well. He looks so pathetic and sad.
    My poor baby boy!

    (ps- sorry i've hijacked Sully's thread!)

    If he does not hold it down,better call back. Can't ALWAYS feel obstruction.
