    as others have stated... that adds to the suspicion of blockage

    I'm so sorry you're going through this with Gertrude, I agree this sounds like an obstruction of some sort. She may have eaten something she found that you don't know about. The best thing is to have a vet assess her to be safe. My Dozer loves to eat sweat socks and has done so on 4 occasions. Each time he was able to either throw it up, or poop it out, but he did show signs of obstruction on one occasion. We took him to the vet and they did an X-ray, gave him a laxative and sent him home for us to observe. He did pass the sock later that night. The signs of obstruction to watch for are drooling water from the mouth, vomiting, a d or diarrhea, and lethargy. I hope Gertrude is okay, and feels better soon. Please keep us updated on what the vet says. Sending love, hugs and prayers.

    Here at the vet -- they did an X-ray and it looked mostly normal. They think it's probably gastroenteritis but they're gonna do a parvo check to rule it out. They're gonna keep her overnight on IV fluids and antinausea meds and do a new X-ray in the morning.

    Aww poor baby, I'm glad she's at the vets and in good hands. Hopefully it's a virus and with medication and IV fluids, she will feel better soon and back to her old self. I'll be watching for an update on how she's doing. Feel better sweet girl.

    Thankfully, it's not parvo. Preciate all the good vibes and advice, everybody. Going to get her early in the AM.

    No blockage. Official dx is inflamed intestines. Feeling much better after the IVs. She's still not eating but she's well enough to go home with us. Bland diet and some meds for a few days and she should be right as rain!
