    Glad to hear he's doing okay. He looks very sweet all snuggly in his chair

    Boris had found the bone in the back yard as my neighbors give their little terrier bones all the time from food they cook. I took it away and made it known that Boris doesnt get ANY people food or bones that aren't approved by me. Of course everyone thinks I'm too protective of my boy, but they don't realize the work involved in owning a bulldog.

    I was a bit worried last night as Boris didnt go #2 at night like he usually does. I woke up this morning to a wonderful aroma coming from the porch area. He finally was able to go on his pee pad, but it was smaller than the usually turd. I spoke with the Vet and she says its a good sign that he's still eating and going to the bathroom so we'll just continue to monitor him.

    Yep, just keep an eye on him. You know when things are unusual, that's your best judgement

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    We just got back from the Vet and Boris should be fine. The vet was not concerned as Boris was still eating anything and had tons of energy and went #1 and #2 while we were there (outside of course). The vet looked at the stool and said it looked healthy with a slight mixture of plants... She said there was no real concern for taking an Xray as Boris showed now signs of pain or discomfort while she did her examination of his stomach and lower intestines (She really got in there). She said its possible if he ate something that it could still be in his stomach and he very well could vomit it up. I drew her a picture of the bit of bone and stated that it gets really rubbery and easy falls apart once he gets started on it (I took it away as soon as i saw it Saturday night it was not something i gave him or would give to him). She gave him a shot to help settle the stomach and also supplied us 2 bland perscription food cans (grain and chicken free) along with 7 Matronidazole pills (1 a day for 7 days) and told us to keep an eye on him. If anything arises we'll go back and get Xrays taken, but she really thought he'll be OK.

    He weighed in at 36.2 lbs from his previous 41 lbs 4 months ago when he got neutered which was nice to see She also stated that his rear hips seem to feel a little more secure than his previous visit. We'll continue on this roller coaster at full force!

    Thanks for all the good vibes everyone!

    Hi Matt, you have been given great advice already and you are on top of it with the vet. I have been through this with Dozer on 4 different occasions as he loves to swallow socks. He always has been able to either throw them up or poop them out. He always acts normal, plays, eats, drinks and has the same energy, but then one day he will poop out a sock.
    There was only one time that he showed signs of obstruction, he started with diarrhea, he vomited a few times, and he was lethargic. We took him to the vet and she examined his tummy and said she could feel a mass, we thought it might be some paper towel, and she gave him some IV fluids, some pain medication, and she took an X-ray which only showed a shadow, that something was there. She sent him home with a high fibre wet food to help move his bowels, and later that night he pooped out a sock, and then was completely back to himself. Just continue to keep an eye on him and be a poop detective, watch his poops for a few days to see if he passes anything. It can take time sometimes for them to pass an object they've swallowed. It took Dozer a whole month before to throw up a sweat sock that he had swallowed, and he never showed any signs, he acted normal the whole time. Hopefully the vomiting passes or he passes the bone if he has swallowed it. I hope Boris feels better soon, and is back to himself. Please keep us posted.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Yeah the vet said the same exact thing about bulldogs being able to hold something in their stomachs for weeks before passing or vomiting it up. I think he really enjoyed his wet food last night cause after I put the can in the fridge he sat in front of it and cried for about 15 minutes. He's such a needy little baby sometimes.

    Thanks to everyone for all the advice and good vibes!

    Well The bone is still MIA, but Boris passed the insides of one of the toys he got in his monthly barkbox. I never imagined pulling 8 inches of whatever they stuff toys with out of my lil mans rear, he has a new found love for me and my gf now knows to look at his rear instead of just say "stop acting weird" as he shuffle his bum on the ground....

    Never a dull moment xD

    Yeah he's doing great. He hasnt puked since we went to the Vet on Tuesday and he's been going to the bathroom and acting normal.I was out last night with work and got home late when I arrived I noticed he had done some damage to one of them while mom slept beside him. I cut open the matching toy to see what he had consumed and was terrified we'd be in the Vet again the next day, but false alarm he just needed some assistance and we've had the talk about supervising Boris with toys that are easily ripped apart

    I have canceled our Barkbox subscription cause the toys are just BLAH for my bully.
