I had to give Murray the couple treats, then have an antler or something he could chew one while I was trying to clean him up and that helped, he didn't 100% tolerate it in the beginning but it got better each time. I kept my one arm so his head was like resting on it and used my other hand to clean it. It's a challenge because they're wiggly little buggers! Please let us know how you make out and in the meantime Murray and I are sending our love, healing thoughts and prayers your way!!
    I'm going to try this today… PB on a spoon will distract him for a time, Thank YOU!!!

    How is he doing? Has he been letting you clean it at all or is it better without the berries?

    NO vomiting so it must have been the berries, and I got a quick swipe in on the bottom. So we are good for NOW!!!

    I just had the biggest PITA logging into this site. The website did not recognize my password. I just might blow this site off for the biggest hassle today.

    Glad to hear the Wallmeister is doing better. Try to stay warm. --rj

    I'm taking Walter in today to see the vet… she still hasn't called me back but he needs to have his anals checked/expressed again today if need be. I haven't been giving him berries, but last night I gave him a couple pieces of fresh watermelon and about an hour or so later he got sick. Not to be too graphic, but it was more mucous than any food… the weather has been changing here so drastically from cold to hot that I'm curious if it's allergies. Right now I feel awful allergy wise, so I don't really know what is going on.

    I'll let you guys know when I get back… I'm seriously getting frustrated w/this

    This really sounds more like heart burn and that is why the irritating food comes up. Veggies irritate his stomach and esophagus. Does he gag like the vomit comes from his stomach or is it just like spitting up on one go? If this happens too often his esophagus can come irritated so much there's blood in the vomit. Gastric acid is strong stuff and can cause the bleeding. I would cut down the fruits and veggies and give him some pepsid.

    Honestly no he will get up from the couch, and next thing I know he has spit up… sometimes I don't even know it has happened, no gagging or anything like that. Most of the time it's just mucous not any food, or just a little bit… it's really weird.
