    Did Tyson have a previous similar episode or was it just a one time thing?

    The first time they were going to do an xray if he didn't eat to see if anything was there but then he did and kept everything down and was fine for the 3 weeks so I wanted to know if you had a long delay with symptoms as well do I can insist on an xray sooner rather than later.

    I am calling bright and early in the morning to see what their plans are since if anything I want to make sure with all this puking he doesn't need them to give him fluids.

    There was a long delay, and he never really lost his appetite. We suspect he must have eaten the socks around Thanksgiving - we didn't fully discover anything until he vomited the first one a day before Christmas!!! Then he vomited the 2nd sock the next day. We thought for sure we were in the clear - but he continued to be sick & vomit - 3 sets of X-rays, and 2 ultrasounds found nothing after the first 2 socks were out. It wasn't until we did a barium swallow that "something" got surrounded by the barium. He was never fully obstructed - they said they had to go in to see what it was, ended up being a 3rd sock! This one however wouldn't have come out on its own - because it had adhered to his stomach already. They had to peel it off!!! Had we not done the surgery, his body would have eventually become septic.
    I still remember the feeling how awful.
    Not to alarm you of course but what your describing is how it started with Tyson. He was always still hungry. Started with bile, then foam, we did the cerenia, the Pepcid, everything. He'd be good for a bit then it would start again, and then he started to not be able to keep food down anymore either that's when vet said "barium"

    I'd push for X-rays now sooner than later. I really hope & pray it's not your case but just sounds very familiar...keep us posted!

    That is super useful information!

    It came out of the blue the first time and this time and i never really got a satisfactory answer really, they just ruled out parasites with a fecal test and ruled out abdominal pain the first time. Brock isn't usually into anything, hes fussy about food and toys, but I know there can always be the time that's not true

    Tyson was never into anything but food, we could leave anything on the floor and he wouldn't touch it. Then for Black Friday - me & the hubs were out all night but we would come home & drop stuff off, then leave again. We suspect this really pissed him off bc when we came back for good in the AM, he had eaten part of a pizza box, a flower, and pulled a towel from the bathroom. These are things he had NEVER done before. We had also around that same week cut his food back bc vet said he was overweight. It all backfired on us, so we're pretty sure that's when he ate the socks as well.

    They did all those tests as well, fecal, abdomen. We spent 2 weeks running test after test, X-rays, ultrasounds... Ugh! Exhausting ... Thank God for the barium!

    I'll be keeping a look out for updates. Poor baby, I hope it's nothing serious and he's better soon.

    Yes your story reminds me of Tyson and my Yuna had one also, her vomit was dark green and smelled of feces.

    Yep....agree with Jessica & Lisa...sounds like partial obstruction.

    Also, could be a rock as several bullies seem to like swallowing pebbles
    & such and it's not passing but not obstructing either.

    Please give updates...praying for Brock.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I was thinking that too could he have swallowed one of the babies toys or part of?

    Since nothing is staying down it sounds like on obstruction. It could of been that the last time too, but the do get resolved by themselves sometimes too. In my opinon he needs to have a x-ray and an ultrasound.

    I'm catching up from last night.... Jessica and Lisa are right -- with it coming back up, I'd get him to the vet as others have stated --- x-rays with barium or ultrasound to see what he has going on.

    We had a situation with Banks, we had no iea she had eaten a 2 inch rock. She never got sick or stopped eating, but she got aggressive with us, which was out of her behavior... x-ray showed the rock and it was ripping up her stomach lining -- we had no clue she'd eaten anything. best to get him checked

    Have nothing to add. Just wishing you well that the vet discerns the issue and that Brock gets the relief soon. Good luck.

    Morning everyone, we just got back from the vet with Brock, he stopped vomiting but did have diarrhea this morning. The vet checked temp, gum coloring, breath and his abdomen as well as for dehydration but Brock was all normal, no pain or anything like that, since we were in about this before they are running blood work and checking his pancreas and we will have those results by Monday. Depending on those results or the lack there of the next step will be xrays if the blood work shows nothing or if there is any deterioration before those results come in. Our vet did say that he may have eaten some old grass or licked something that's been dormant in the yard since we do have different critters running around and the snow has just really melted. I really don't think he has gotten into anything though inside the house or out, even the baby's things are kept out of view and reach.

    So I will keep you all posted on Brock and what is going on in his little body but for now we are crossing our fingers hoping for good blood work results and that when he gets some food later tonight he keeps it all in and maybe he starts gething his feet washed after every outting since he likes to lick them. He has had water a couple of times now and kept it down so we are atleast not as worried about dehydration.
