    Exclamation I need help, worried

    Hello Everyone,

    I need some thoughts on what may be going on with my Brock. A little background info, a little over 3 weeks ago he had this event where for a day he was puking yellow and not taking in any food or water, and was doing a ton of downward dog/play position stretching, and had a very very small slimy poop, we called the vet and went in and the vet gave him a shot to stop the vomiting told us to bring him back in if he puked again that night and a packet of Cerenia to give him the following morning. After the night passed I gave him the Cerenia, hand fed him a few things as he wouldn't really eat, gave him some pedialyte as he wouldn't touch his water and then that night he started eating and drinking again. The result was good poops, good appetite, overall a happy charming bulldog. So we thought maybe he got into something that we never figured out since he is walked on leash and supervised.

    Come to today, this morning he puked two piles of yellow at 745, started doing downward dog stretches again (like 10 in a row) then vomited 3 piles of white foam at 220pm, I am waiting for the vet to call me back but does anyone have any ideas what could be going on? He isn't really acting different then usual just not eating or drinking again and stretching and puking.

    He's 3 now, nothing going on activity wise for him, he ate some snow a few days ago but otherwise he is leash walked outside and has had the same food and snacks for a while now. He ate his dinner and woke up and then didn't eat and the puking and stretching followed. He did just have another good poop it's just so worrisome that this puking just happens

    Any chance the snow had 'salt' in it from the side walks?

    Hi!!! Nice to see you and so sorry Brock isn't feeling good today.

    If he doesn't eat.... he will vomit bc his tummy is empty .... what times of the day do you usually do his feedings?

    I would like to see if we can find out why he is vomiting to find the cause, instead of treating the symptoms with a quick fix. So why is he refusing.... absolutely no chance he got into something?

    I know ive been super absent on thr boards, i had a non fur baby almost 5 months and she is a handful =)

    He couldn't have gotten into regular salt we only use pet safe ice melt so if he licked up some of that or his paws afterwards it shouldn't cause this another day later.

    The vet said to give him a cerenia after getting back to me but that continues my I wonder what causes this to happen.

    I am currently making a steak to see if he will eat a little of that with a handful of kibble to see if we can keep something down before going this pill route.

    He usually gets a morning and evening feeding and on days he doesn't eat his breakfast he eats his dinner so I'm hoping to get something into him so his stomach isn't so empty

    I'm not sure I agree with the pill to stop his vomiting (especially that 1st visit)
    unless it's constant & massive vomits. Reason being, it could be something needed
    to get out of system. But, it seems not the reason so...I think bland diet for 3 or 4
    days. A tip for refusel to eat, try to give broth and/or ice cubes to hydrate them.
    Good luck & let us know how Brock does.

    Congratulations on new Baby!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I agree with this, try the bland diet and if that doesn't work, he may need an X-ray to find out what's going on.

    Also, how long has he been in lamb and lentil? Lamb may not be a protein he tolerates.

    Another thing you can do is give him s small snack at bedtime. Loads of bulldog owners give yogurt right before bed, or a rice cake, a few treats, ect.

    That helps with early morning nasea.

    Well Brock wants to eat and drink it just isn't staying down. He puked up the steak wrap that was around his pill, I didn't see the pill though and he has tried to drink water, once at 7 and he puked it up at 730 so I'm not sure what is up with that tummy of his at the moment, poor little guy.

    Just catching up, at this point I'd be asking for X-rays to see if he has something in his belly. This sounds like what happened to Tyson. He ended up having 3 socks in his stomach!
