    So we're back.

    It's pretty much what you guys said. Stress, new food.

    She did take a chest and stomach x-ray to rule out aspiration and obstruction. Both were fine.

    He also got an anti-nausea shot, and metronidazole (used for bowel irritation). She said the x-ray showed he was gassy.

    Other than that, bland diet. I'm boiling hamburger and rice now.

    She did say that if he still throws up even after the shot, to take him in for a sonogram. Said that with an obstruction, the shot won't help.

    Oh, he has Patella Luxation in both knees.
    Tomorrow is his appointment with the surgeon who did Blue's palate surgery, and will be doing his neuter and nares on 10/15.
    I wanted to schedule Wellie the same day (neuter, palate and nares.)
    Now I need to speak to her about his knees too.. oy

    So Chris and I were talking. For a pup we've only had 2 short days, our medical bills are going to be around 10k. Just today's appointment with our normal vet was over 600.
    I was heartbroken and asked Chris what we should do? My wonderful husband goes "we do what we have to do, he's ours". I love him my hubs so much!!

    Little Wellie has a lot on his plate but he's also such a lucky boy to have parents who are making sure he gets the best care possible
    Hopefully, the bland diet, and the meds will help his tummy troubles.

    I'm glad to hear that it is only stress. I'm sorry to hear that you have such a big expense to get him healthy. Wellie is young and will give you guys many many years of happiness. I'm glad he found your home where he will get the love and medical attention he needs. Your husband sounds like one in a million. I would keep him around!!!!! Did the vet think it was a great idea to take him in for another appt. if he is already stressed out?? Brutus gets stressed like this as well and it usually takes a couple of days for him to settle down. I keep reglan(for nausea) and fomotadine(for gastric issues) on hand all the time. My vet gives my prescriptions and I give it as necessary when he gets himself worked up. It is usually if we go on vacation or something that completely upsets his routine.

    Thanks guys.
    @brutus77 we don't have a choice. It generally takes at least a month to get an appointment with the vets there. They squeezed us in only after I sent her an email explaining I want both pups procedures done the same day since Blue's already scheduled.

    I don't think it will really upset him that much anyway. Good luck at the appt.

    Hi, I'm just reading this thread now, and I see you've already got great advice from everyone as always. I was also going to suggest it was stress from a new home and maybe food changes. I'm glad to hear it wasn't anything serious. I hope he feels better soon, poor little guy. I'm sure with some quiet time, and a bland diet for a few days, he'll be himself before too long. I'm sorry you're going through so many issues all at once. You have a lot of surgeries scheduled as well, I hope everything goes well, with their surgeries, you're going to have your hands full with two of them recuperating at the same time. Wellie is so lucky that he got you guys for his parents, you're awesome.

    We just got back from the Orthopedic Surgeon.

    Good news, his knees (luxating patella) aren't bad. In fact, she said she barely felt any movement in one knee. The other, is luxating but isn't coming out completely (which is good news). Since he doesn't show any sings of distress and has full motion
    we don't need to do anything. Said he's a typical bullie, will get arthritis when he gets older, and we should be able to manage any pain with meds.

    NO SURGERY!! I am so freakin' happy!!!

    We're home now. He ate (boiled burger and rice) and he's now happily snoozing at my feet.

    October 15th both my both will be going in to be neutered though. Blue will also get his nares done, so will Wellie. Wellie will also have his saculles, palate and tonsils checked as well. If need be, those will done too.

    I'm gonna have two drugged up, ball-less bullies that I'm hoping will just sleep for a few days..lol..

    @cali baker thank you.

    We now go back to the vets (this time Blues new dermatologist) Thursday.

    Since Saturday, I've been to the vets 3 times. Thursday should be the last time until October.
    Crazy week.
