    That could happen, but I would monitor him closely and still take him to vet for a check up if he seems sick. Panting heavily without an apparent reason could be a sign of pain or discomfort. Glad he's doing better.

    I would still get him checked out today by your vet..... if you want, you can check the list of bulldog vets we have here on the site, they are all member recommended

    I did take him to a bulldog vet this morning. They couldn't find any blockages. They actually aren't really sure what is wrong. They gave him a shot to stop the nausea so we can try to kick start his eating again. I brought him into work with me and he is doing pretty alright so far.

    Let's hope he just had a little tummy bug and he is back to normal soon. If not, and things continue make sure any xray is done with barium, it will show any blockage that a regular xray will not pick up. @bullmama and @Blueberrys Mom had this happen with their bullies

    Today at work he has been pretty normal. He is peeing a lot, but I think that is from the medicine at the vet. He also has been eating today. He pooped earlier as well, it was a solid dark ball. Maybe it was the thing he was struggling with? I didn't really check it out in detail.

    When Blue swallowed a squeaker, it didn't show up on an x-ray. We had to insist on a sonogram, and that's where they saw it. They didn't offer us a barium (you mean for contrast right?) x-ray, didn't know it was an option. Thanks for the info. @2BullyMama
    @Leyth did your vet do an x-ray? How did they rule out blockage?
    Regarding the poop.. umm.. the only way to know for sure if he passed something, is to check the poop. Yeah, very nasty. But other than checking, there's no way to tell.

    Either way, good to hear he's feeling better.

    Uhh, I'm not really sure how they ruled it out, he said he doesn't see any gas patches or something? However, other than the sniffles Turbo seems to be doing great. He just ate dinner and he pooped a few hours before that. He is just catching up on sleep lately from I can tell.
