    Default Help!

    I have a 9 mo old EBD that hasn't eaten today & has vomited a clear- mucus like slime about 4 times. He isn't as active as normal & I even tried to coax him with a chicken nugget and he refused. I don't know if I should take a wait-&-see approach or if this is something that requires emergency medical treatment. I am worried sick, please help!

    I would take him in and insist on an ultrasound (not x-ray because they can miss it) to rule out obstruction.
    And I would take him in right away.

    Everything you've mentioned are signs of Obstruction. He can also just be sick, like a cold. But one of the symptoms of Bordettela or Canine Influenza, both of which are making the rounds here in the northeast, is also a hacking cough which
    almost sounds like they're gagging. Does he have that?

    Hi Paige, I agree with others advice, if he vomiting, not eating, and is. To acting like himself, he's not feeling well. Dogs and especially EB's have a high pain threshold, and don't usually show when they are in pain. A vet will be able to determine if he has an abstraction. Is there any chance he could have eaten something, that you don't know about, like article of clothing, a piece of toy, or something he may have found? My male Bulldozer loves to eat socks, and has done so 4 times. He has always been able to either throw them up, or poop them out. The signs of obstruction to look for are vomiting and /or diarrhea, drooling water from the mouth, and lethargic behaviour. They can sometimes show signs and then go back to acting normal like eating, drinking, playing, and then a week later throw up or poop out the item. Dozer threw up the last sock he swallowed a whole month after he swallowed it. Keep an eye on him, check his poops for swallowed items, and if he's not better tomorrow, have the vet check him out. I hope he's okay. Please keep us posted.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Have you tried giving him peanut butter? Yogurt? Liver treats? Cheese?
