    take him to the ER Vet for 2nd opinion if he doesn't improve very soon.

    I'd stop all food for 12 hours as to give his poor tummy & system REST.
    It'll help him a lot, not to worry. Then give smaller amt of bland diet only,
    no rx diet as it prolly has grains. Like maybe 1 cup each feeding for 2 days
    and see how he does. Go to health food store and get Slippery Elm, a herb
    that coats the tummy, it soothes & heals inflammation and if it's not an
    obstruction, will help him feel much better! Please let us know~Praying now!
    Great advice from everyone, I agree. Any news on your baby?

    Thanks for checking. Today he was diagnosed with what we think to be intussusception. He is currently in surgery. It has been a very stressful week watching him suffer, have diarrhea, vomit, not eat or drink, and just be very lethargic. We are praying this surgery isn't taking place to late. We came to this conclusion by running barium through him yesterday. I don't really know why this was not done sooner?

    The surgery went good! He is awake. He will stay continue to stay in the vets care for the next few days. Hoping to have him home by Thursday. His daddy will be home on Friday. I am hoping that will lift his spirits.

    Thank GOD for safe surgery! I would grill them on WHY it took so long
    and let him suffer??? I'd ask for a big bill reduction too. Can you inform
    us as to what this dx is so to help us know how to help other bullies?

    Thank you for letting us know and continue updating us. Will pray for his
    swift & complete recovery~Sending big hugs of comfort & strength <3

    Wow. Glad to hear he is doing well. For those that don't know it is basically a section of the bowel that has overlapped itself in one direction or another. Sometimes it can be corrected by palpatation of the abdominal area or it will spontaneously correct itself in some cases. However, most of the time surgery is required to correct it though. Sadly I know a little about this because my daughter had this condition many years ago. I would have never thought of it happening to a pup.

    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Thank you, dear Todd, for sharing such hard won education.

    I am grateful your daughter is well~GOD bless you & yours, always!

    Again...I'd question WHY this wasn't dxed and quicker. Sounds like
    you're very lucky to have your bully today...GOD is good!

    My vet thinks my puppy may have this but he isnt vomiting. He is eating, drinking and playing. his bowel movements arent too bad. He gave me Laxitone, Albon and something else, the name escapes me as i am at work. He's hoping to hold off on surgery and that the problem fixes itself with this treatment and it is possible. Im worried about this guy as he is my first. How much was the surgery, my vet told me $500-$700. Im almost wondering if maybe i should just opt for the surgery but dont want to put him through it if there is a chance he may get better on his own.

    I would keep an eye on him, and see how he does with his meds. If you see no improvement, request the barium swallow, since that's what confirmed it for the prior member. Also, try massaging his belly, around the area where his intestines are located. My husband is a sports/rehab therapist, and does myofascial work on Tyson's belly every few days. This basically just stimulates the muscles, which could in turn fix something that isn't working properly. No guarantees of course - esp depending on how serious the condition has already gotten.... but I would still give him a good massage... he'll love it, and it could help. I wouldn't go straight to surgery without confirming through Barium that he does 100% have the condition.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
