I am hoping he is on the mend! bf brought up the barium swallow and the vet said that would be a last resort for frank, he doesn't want to put him through that just yet.


    I always panic and immediatly think the worst. I am hoping this is truly just something that will pass in a few days!


    Try ground turkey.... my girl was highly allergic to chicken and had salmon sensitivity... but she was fine with ground turkey.
    Also, just an FYI, when dogs are excited, their adrenaline is racing, they feel no pain.... Get to the vet they are playing, happy and showing no signs of anything... get home and they are back to being sick.

    He's now turned his nose up at burger and rice, and ground turkey and rice. I gave him some plain ground turkey and he did pick at that, but did not gobble it up. I don't understand it, he will eat treats and peanut butter just fine... Just so worrisome and frustrating. I called his vet and they said to call back in the am if he's still not doing better.

    Awww Honey!...nothing worse than our babies not well ;(

    Try to remain calm a 'lil while longer and look at the positives,
    he's been seen & had some tests, he's got some meds, he's
    acting fine (mostly), he's eating sometimes & he's peeing/pooping.

    It does take time for bland diet (& food changes prior ) to calm
    tummy, do not worry if he eats smaller amounts or refuses a meal,
    it's okay!

    Big hugs for all


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    so sorry this is not getting better. I would try to relax, breathe... if you are upset he is going to sense it and react to your nervousness (easier said than done I know) but, call the vet in the AM and push for the barium test

    Yes, at this point - barium. It's not painful to them, they just swallow the barium, it's more annoying maybe Bc they will X-ray him every hour or so... You'll have to leave him there. They follow the barium to make sure it's moving through his belly & intestines & then out. Don't freak when you see him poop the barium, lol it's a good sign if he does - means he's not fully obstructed. Prayers to you!! You can pm me if you have any other questions about it.

    Just woke up to him having awful diarrhea inside his crate. Should I still do the barium swallow even though he is passing stool? I'm calling the vet as soon as they open this morning. Just not sure what they're going to be able to tell me. I definitely want to ask about the barium swallow and getting bloodwork done.

    I feel like I need to stop attempting to feed him, feeding him all these different things is probably adding to the upset stomach.

    I'm so sorry I am just seeing This now. I am on vacation and not visiting regularly. I would insist on a swallow to rule out obstruction. it is too long now that he is having eating and tummy issues. I will check back tonight to see an update. I will be praying for little frank.
    My smooshy face boy!
