    I'm just reading this. I hope and pray the little guy feels better. Man, it's so upsetting when our bullies are sick.

    You are very good thanks the support is always helpful.
    We've been through an obstruction, multiple xrays, ultrasounds, and exploratory surgery.... so I feel & understand your pain, it was a horrible time for us, actually right around this time last year - we had a sick bully at Christmas. I'm hoping its not an obstruction for George, and maybe just a stomach bug, just want him to feel better.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    That's terrible I'm glad you are through the other side now though. I will have to be a lot more vigilant with this guy now if it turns out it is an obstruction.
    Your Tyson is very cute!

    George was at the vet again today he appears to have acute colitis is on antibiotics and antacids. He seems to be responding a lot better this evening just feeding him small amounts of chicken and rice and hopefully we will be back on track in a week or so.

    UGH -- colitis! My girl had that and it would just show up whenever it wanted to -- we used a powder and the name escapes me right now. You can also use Metamucil... a little teaspoon in her food to help when it flares up

    remembered the powder.... Tylan

    Oh poor baby - Colitis I know its not great, but I'll take that over an obstruction any day. I know the meds will help him feel better soon. Please give him lots of love, cuddles and hugs.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Thanks again everyone.
    Great to know about the powder.

    So, they did do an xray finally? sorry if I missed that post. Is the powder someone talking about Forta Flora, a probiotic? Sounds like you need to keep your pup on a short leash, especially since they have a behavior like this. I'd also suggest getting the standard OTC meds so that you have them on hand, chances are you'll end up needing them eventually.

    Tylan powder or Metamucil was recommended here.
    Our vets in Ireland are very reluctant to give medication unless it's for immediate use they don't allow you to store it.
    No they didn't do an X-ray and he hasn't pooped for about 36 hours except for some very dark syrup like stuff only a small amount. He isn't drinking now at all we are just trying to give him ice cubes to keep him hydrated. He is on rice and chicken for 5 days so I'm thinking that after his 24 hour fasting he has nothing to poop out yet maybe.
    I am seriously thinking about introducing him to a raw food diet over time as I know a few dogs on this and they are doing very well (not Bulldogs they are setters but they had gastric problems too).

    Since you fasted him, he may take a day or two to poop again and since he's on the chicken/rice he will drink less. The chicken & rice if you boiled has alot of water in it. I wouldn't be too worried just yet, Tyson did the same thing and it freaked me out. But sure enough once he started eating his food, he started drinking again. You can always pull the skin on the back of his neck too, if it goes back down quickly - he's hydrated well - if you see its stays or moves really slow, he needs hydration!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    That did dawn on me about the water in the food but thanks for making me feel better about it, it's good to know and not to worry about the poop.
    its good to talk to people that understand the breed, thanks.
