    Default What could be wrong with frank

    I posted another thread on this thursday night. We had rushed frank to the emergency vet. He was fine in the morning, my boyfriend took him to daycare and they said he vomited and was not acting like his normal playful self. I picked him up and he refused to eat his food which is so out of the ordinary for him. We rushed to the emergency vet and he vomited twice more. They ran a fecal test and a parvo test. Everything came back fine. We also did X-rays for an obstruction. They found nothing.

    There are moments where he seems like he's doing better and then moments where he's not. He refuses to eat his kibble still, so we tried boiled hamburger and rice and he did eat that. He's just acting depressed, listless. He also had a not so firm poop this morning. And he is farting a lot and it smells rancid.

    We we switched him from blue chicken to canidae salmon and mackerel 3 weeks ago and he was doing great on it. Frank had giardia when we first got him and the vet said it could've laid dormant for a while, so he is being treated for that.

    Could he have some type stomach bug? Why won't he eat his kibble but eat other foods? I'm so worried about him!! It is stressing us out big time. I don't know what else to do but take him in to see his normal vet.

    Is he pooing and peeing normally? Many things that can cause an obstruction aren't detected on normal x-rays and would need to do a barium xray or ultrasound if you do think it is an obstruction in order to help with detecting it.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    He is pooping and peeing normally. His stool is very smelly though but it's not thin or stringy. I am willing to do a barium swallow or anything else, whatever it takes it get him well. I just don't know where to start...

    His breathing also sounds a bit congested. This congestion just started today.

    There has been so many recalls lately with dog foods that maybe there is something wrong with the kibble? I would not give him food for awhile or give him boiled hamburger and rice, since he ate that and it is also recommended with stomach bugs.

    After this is all over we are switching to fromms! I called and left a message for my vet, hoping to get him in tomorrow.

    I'm sorry to hear about little Frank. I'm hoping he has a simple stomach virus that will run its course. Do you think he might've gotten himself into something--missing socks or stuffed toys that heave been chewed up?

    I sounds like a virus-or a possible obstruction. Could he have gotten hold of something? I agree with Rikka about bland, until you see the vet.

    How long would a stomach bug last ?

    i really don't think he's swallowed something but I can't rule it out.

    It could be an obstruction that doesn't show up on x-ray, but it could also be a stomach bug. Put him on a bland diet for a few days and I would take him to the vet again.

    I hope that you get it figured out.... Poor Frank and poor you! It is always awful when our babies are sick, especially when we don't know what is wrong.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!
